Parfait reminds me of the movie Shrek!!!
I love the character donkey - he is such a crackup.
So, in the words of Donkey: 
"You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, 'Let's get some parfait,' they say, 'Hell no, I don't like no parfait'? Parfaits are delicious!....
Parfait's gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!"

Well yeah, parfait is pretty delicious!
The literal meaning of parfait is "perfect", although Donkey was referring to it as a tasty dessert of layers, as it is commonly known.

I prefer to have parfait as breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Here's some great options for layers:
  • whipped coconut cream
  • cashew cream
  • yogurt
  • oats
  • crumbled rice cakes
  • nuts or seeds
  • gingernut biscuits
  • fresh fruits - try strawberries, passionfruit
  • dried fruits
  • soy-tella 
  • you could try okara if you really want to experiment
  • if you're feeling like a real treat go ahead and add some cacao nibs!!
The options are endless!
Experiment and find what you enjoy.

Here's a few of ours:
Afternoon parfait - strawberry soy-gurt, crumbled rice cakes, soytella, banana, strawberries, currants, sesame seeds, chocolate on top
Breakfast parfait - soy-gurt, oats, chopped prunes, sunflower seeds
And just for Donkey - showing the layers ;-)
