Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

Holi is a festival of colours and when you celebrate holi colourful and yummy dishes are what comes to mind. What if you can make some dish healthy,coulourful and yummy and perfect for this summer?
Wishing All Aps Kitchen readers Happy Holi.
This is what I decided to make Yogurt fruit Parfait with Beetroot Juice


This is what we need to make Beetroot syrup
1 small beetroot peeled and grated
½ cup water to boil the beetroot
Sugar around 3 tbsp
Method:
  • Grate beetroot and boil in  water and add sugar to this and keep aside to cool completely.
  • Strain beetroot and sugar water through a sieve.
  • Pour squash into sterilized bottles and store refrigerate.
Now to make parfait:
Yogurt – ½ cup
Fruits of your choice ( I have used apples and kiwi)
1 tbsp nuts (Pistachio and almonds)-optional
Jelly – ¼ th cup ( I have used readymade mango jelly powder to make the jelly)
Now to assemble the Parfait:
In a glass add in 1 tbsp Beetroot squash and layer it with yogurt then fruits and again with a tsp of beetroot syrup and nuts. Repeat the same till we fill the glass and Serve.
Note:
In the above said beetroot syrup recipe we can make 4 glasses of Parfait but if you wish to make only a glass of parfait or two you can use it to make juice with this syrup.Fill 1/3 of serving glass with the beetroot squash and remaining by water. Mix up well and serve chill topped with ice cubes. 
you can even make a large quantity of beetroot and sugar to make the beetroot syrup.
Make sure you have the yogurt, syrup and fruits to be chilled so that once you assemble you can serve immediately.
Here I have not used extra Sugar to the parfait as the beetroot syrup has enough sugar and when mixed it makes it Perfect sweet.
Till later then
Happy Cooking,
