Per-fait: A Perfect Parfait

A perfect dessert is one that is sweet, requires minimal effort and definitely cost-effective. After considering these factors, I came up with Per-fait, A Perfect Parfait. Why is it perfect, you ask? Because it’s so simple that my 2-year-old niece made it as her mummy’s birthday cake! Under my supervision, of course. It was one of the best memories I had with my darling niece. Apart from bonding with a child, Per-fait could also satisfy your sweet tooth without having your blood glucose level shooting up.

Another reason why Per-fait is awesome is that there are infinite variations. You could have this with all sorts of different types of fruits and it will still taste as good. I know that fruits have become a topic of discussion, especially amongst people with diabetes, due to the fact that they contain sugar. Though fruits contain naturally occurring sugar, they have a lot more to offer such as fibres, vitamins, and even minerals. The key here is to eat moderately. Health Promotion Board recommends that we have 2 serves of fruits daily. For more ideas on how to include fruits in your meals, have a read here.
