Peach & whipped mascarpone parfait

image

It’s the season for peaches! Nothing beats the taste of a ripe, dripping with juice peach. And if you add some whipped mascarpone cream..Yum! This is one extremely easy dessert, that will please even the most difficult guests :). I prepared a version for adults and one for kids. The peach parfait for adults was made with peaches that where marinated with white rum and maple sirup. But if you’re not in to rum you can stick to the kid version, it’s still delicious!

Around 4 big ripe peaches
1/4 cup maple sirup
1 shoot of white rum ( adult version )

1 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar

Shredded almonds

Cut peaches in to small cubes, add maple sirup and white rum ( if you’re preparing the adult version ). Set aside. Whip cream with sugar. Add mascarpone and mix it until it’s smooth and fluffy. You can add some more sugar, if you like it sweeter. Now place peaches in a tall glass, and top with whipped mascarpone and shredded almonds.
Enjoy !

Almond raspberry mascarpone parfait

image

It’s one of these really easy, yet amazing desserts, that make your guests ask: how did you do it ?! Well, let me tell you how 🙂


1 cup mascarpone cheese
1cup cream
1/4cup sugar
1teaspoon of almond essence

Graham crackers
1cup of frozen raspberries
1/4 cup of sugar

In stead of making a regular whipped cream, all you need is to do, is to add mascarpone cheese and almond extract, and you’ll end up with this amazing creamy whipp. In microwave heat raspberries and sugar, it should end up as a sweet raspberry sauce. Now crumble the graham crackers , and prepare your glasses : a bit of crumbles, a big spoon of almond-mascarpone cream and raspberry sauce..repeat..and voila !
