Raspberry Banana Parfait

O my, this is my very first entry for a layered dessert and ooo, I just loved it. Wow factor lies in the fresh fruit syrup and with the combo of vanilla essence n banana , all makes my mouth rhymes mmmm.. Lovely dessert, and again u can whip up this dessert easily , even with preserves too..How good is that ? Here I've replaced the whipped cream with hearty yoghurt, u may go for greek yoghurt , if u prefer.. Simply awesome and prefect for this season. Just let free ur mind and do come up with different varieties of ur own. Am gonna make more varieties soon..till then NJOY !!!
Ingredients :

Raspberry -- 1/2 cup
Banana -- 1 no .
Vanilla essence -- 1/2 tsp 
Water -- 2 tbsp
Sugar -- 2 tbsp ( acc to taste )
Yoghurt ( non fat / fat -- ur choice ) -- 1/2 cup
Banana -- 1 no, sliced
Cookie ( I used snickerdoodle) -- 2 nos.

Method :
  • Puree the raspberries with a tbsp of sugar and filter to remove the pits.
  • Blend the banana with the vanilla essence , water and sugar and make it ready.
  • Take a serving glass and pour in couple of tbsp of the raspberry syrup to form a layer. Followed by a thin layer of  yoghurt and even it . Then pour in a tbsp of the banana syrup and pat the glass gently .
  • Now add the slices of bananas on the top and make a even layer. Crumble the cookie and add on the top of the banana slices.

  • Again start pouring the yoghurt , raspberry syrup one by one until u've almost filled the glasses and finally top it with the slices of banana and cookie crumble.. 
  • Chill the parfait for 10 minutes and serve chilled. But one thing, do not add the cookie crumble on top if u r going to refrigerate, just add when u r ready to serve.
 Notes :
  • Will post my snickerdoodle cookie recipe soon.
  • U may add any cookie u want, preferably a bit soft cookie.
  • U may also use frozen raspberries, in case , u don't get the fresh one's.
