Parfait!! with Yogurt, Homemade Granola and Glazed Peaches..

Parfait is a french word meaning "perfect". Parfaits are generally layered desserts with cream, fruits and alcohol. I made this simple yet scrumptious one with greek yogurt (yumm, I love this stuff), peaches and my homemade granola. I have already posted my home made granola recipe earlier. Peaches are in season and I bet I made a great use of it.
Serves - 2
Greek Yogurt (Low-fat/Fat-free) - 1 cup
Homemade Granola - 1 cup - Click here for the simple recipe
Peaches - 2 - ripe
Juice from 1 Orange
Agave Syrup - 1 tbsp
Butter - 1 tsp
Also needed: 2 transparent glasses
To Glaze Peaches: 
Wash, peel and pit the peaches. Cut into wedges. Heat butter in a non-stick pan and heat the orange juice and the agave. When it starts to bubble over drop in the peaches carefully and continue to heat in medium-high heat. Flip over and continue to cook until most of the juice has evaporated. Allow to cool.
Layering the Parfait glass:
Whip the yogurt in a bowl and all the leftover syrup from glazing the peaches. Take one parfait glass and start layering beginning with the peaches. Use a fork to place the peaches in the glass. Layer about 1/4th of a cup of the yogurt with a spoon and spread carefully. Top with 1/4th of a cup of home-made granola. Repeat with peaches, yogurt and granola. Follow the same method for the other cup. Serve chilled for breakfast or as a dessert. I had this for my Sunday breakfast. It was super delicious and was filling at the same time.
Notes: Try to get greek yogurt, otherwise regular yogurt or curd (dahi) also works perfectly fine. Agave Nectar can be substituted with honey or brown sugar. I used orange juice to reduce the quantity of brown sugar used to give the caramelization. Any stoned fruit can be substituted for peaches. Try Apricots or Plums for a variation.
