Strawberry and Butternut Cookies Parfait

August has gone fast and spring is coming!  I've just got in time to post this parfait recipe to ANU's August Event - Berries - Strawberry Dessert.  Strawberry is not only a tasty fruit with lovely colour, it also has lots of health benefits such as high in anti-oxidents, regulate blood sugar level and cleansing skin.  However you need to consume 3-4 times a week to get the benefit.  For more information on strawberry, please click here.  This is a simple and fast dessert, hope you enjoy it!

Strawberry and Butternut Cookies Parfait
(serve 4)

500g strawberries, hulled, halved
1/4 cup icing sugar
250g mascarpone cheese
200g low-fat plain yoghurt
1 passionfruit (optional)
butternut snap cookies
mint leaves (for garnishing)


  1. Combine mascarpone, yoghurt, icing sugar and passionfruit pulp in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Place strawberries into the glass, then top with a layer of cheese-yohurt mixture.  Break some cookies over it.  Repeat layers and ended with strawberries on top and garnish with mint.
  3. You can serve straight away if you like it crispy or let it in the fridge for an hour for soften, honeycomb texture.

  1. Hi Veronica-I would like to thank you for offering to send me the canned passion fruit. That is so sweet of you! I really appreciate it, but please don't go out of your way to do so! I will check with my local produce market to see if they can get the fresh, and come to think of it, I do see it from time-to-time at Wholefoods Market, here, locally.
    Your parfait is it! So healthy, and delicious!
    BTW-I have two awards for you to claim...just grab both, or one, which ever way you would like!
    Don't forget to pass it on to 10 other bloggers!
    Congratulations...well deserved:DDD
