French-styled dessert has got many varieties. Traditional French parfait is made with a custard-base ice cream, that was well whipped to achieve an airy texture. Then ice cream is layered with fruit puree and served in special parfait glasses, that are long and tapered.
American parfait differs from French sundae. This version of dessert consists of layered parfait cream, ice cream and gelatin and topped with whipped cream, liquor or cut fruit. Yogurt, nuts and granola sometimes can substitute some classical layers of parfait and even all of them.
