[sweets] Low sugar berries madness parfait 

Inspired by Korean chain Cafe de Paris’ fruit BonBon,  I re-created one that has much less sugar at a much lower cost!

I’ve taken the frozen berries that I bought last time to make the Unicorn Frapp, together with real fresh cream and some strawberries, and one of the my very own secret ingredient, there goes my Berries madness parfait!  Other than berries, you can also use the same method to make Mango madness parfait too!

What you need:
– about 5 fresh strawberries (choose ones that are in similar size)
– 250ml 35% whipping cream
– 2 tbsp of frozen berries
– 1 tsp of sugar
– 2 tbsp of water
– 100ml of Pellegrino (where the secret is!)

What you do:
1. Blend frozen berries and water into smoothie, pour into the cup, add pellegrino
2. Add 1 tsp sugar and whisk whipping cream until stiff peak with a hand mixer or stand mixer, transfer all into a piping bag (using Wilton’s 1M head) and pipe on top of the smoothie
3. Dice 2 strawberries and place on top of the fresh cream, then pipe another layer of cream in swirls like soft serve ice cream
4. Cut the rest of strawberries in halves and place around the cream and garnish with some icing sugar

p.s.  Add honey into smoothie if you favour a sweeter taste!  I chose Pellegrino because it’s a sparkling water yet not as bubbly as tonic water or soda water, it gives a mild tingle to your taste buds but not so overwhelmed by a sudden burp.  Choose the right cup for your desired size, a whiskey glass is ideal for smaller portion.  Replace the top fresh cream with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you wish!
