Parfait’s are a favourite breakfast of mine. They really are so easy to make and you can fill them with just about anything you have on hand. This mango and puffed amaranth parfait is a new favourite combination. Summery, light and so delicious. It would also make a great healthy dessert.
Puffed amaranth is available from health food stores and some supermarkets. They are really tiny, airy puffs and are great for you. H absolutely loves it but if you think your child wouldn’t go for it, you can combine it with the yogurt and it will go virtually unnoticed.

Mango and Puffed Amaranth Parfait
- Puffed Amaranth
- Natural Yoghurt
- 1 Mango; flesh chopped
- 2 passionfruit
Add some puffed amaranth to the bottom of your two glass and top with a couple of tablespoon of yoghurt. Top that with half the mango and then repeat to create another layer. Top with passionfruit and serve.
Puffed amaranth is also called popped amaranth.
I haven't given exact quantities because you can just add an amount that suits you.
For tiny babies, puree the mango rather than chop
