Mini Mango Parfaits with Cardamom Rose Whipped Cream Recipe


Homemade whipped cream adds an exotic touch to an Indian-inspired parfait in a shot glass.

Ingredients:
1 mango
8 oz. Greek yogurt
1/4 pint heavy whipping cream
1/6 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. rose food flavoring (available at Indian grocers; I used Viola Rose Food Flavour)
1/4 tsp. ground cardamom

You'll Also Need:
shot (or other) glasses, hand mixer or whisk (I used an OXO Egg Beater that I got as a gift from the I <3 FoodBuzz Festival), mixing bowl

Step-by-Step:
1. (If possible, place the mixing bowl and mixer in the fridge prior to starting. The cream will whip faster the cooler it is.) Dice the mango.

2. Pour the heavy whipping cream, the sugar, the rose food flavoring, and the cardamom into the mixing bowl.

3. Mix with a hand mixer (electric or manual) or a whisk until soft peaks form. It took me about 4 minutes.

4. Place a dollop of yogurt into a shot glass.

5. Add a layer of mango into the glass.

 6. Top with a layer of the flavored whipped cream.

 7. Continue layering until you reach the top of the glass.

Makes 6 mini parfaits.

The AHH Factor: One of our wedding gifts was a beautiful set of Mikasa shot glasses. They are especially gorgeous because each of the six has a unique design etched into it, thereby helping you tell your glass apart from the other drinkers' glasses.

The only problem is that when Nick and I do shots, we don't do them out of sophisticated glasses. We do them out of disposable cups -- which have the advantage of being unbreakable. In fact, we generally try to hide all breakable items when we have a party that could potentially involve shots of alcohol. Or "earthquake putty" them to the ground, in the case of a gorgeous vase we got as a housewarming gift, which, I am happy to say, is still intact after our housewarming party.

So I had to come up with a different use for the glasses. Inspired by "mini-desserts" I've ordered in restaurants, I decided they'd be perfect as mini-parfait glasses. Aren't they so pretty? This would be so cute for a brunch. Plus, the cardamom rose whipped cream is to die for. Now that's something I'd take a shot of from a fancy glass.
