Mother's Day Delightful

Mother's Day is right around the corner.  Is time limited?  If so, I have a solution for you!  This recipe would certainly be delightful for me!  Shower that special someone with love and give her breakfast in bed!  Plus...maybe a spa package!

Here is a quick fix breakfast or brunch recipe that takes total time: 1 hour with prep, or you can make it ahead and let all the flavors come together in 4 hours.

Nectarine and Strawberry Parfait
Serves 4.

Active time: 30 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes

All you need
3/4 cup sweet white wine, such as Sauterne or sweet Riesling
1/2 cup Hy-Vee honey
2 ripe but firm nectarines, thinly sliced
2 cups quartered hulled strawberries
1/2 cup whipping cream or heavy cream
1 cup Hy-Vee nonfat plain Greek yogurt

All you do
1.  Combine wine and honey in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil until reduced to about 1/2 cup, 6 to 10 minutes.

2.  Combine nectarines and strawberries in a medium bowl and toss with 1/4 cup of the wine syrup.  Refrigerate the remaining 1/4 cup syrup for at least 10 minutes to cool.

3.  Beat cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form.  Fold or beat in yogurt and the cooled wine syrup until combined.

4.  Spoon a scant 1/4 cup yogurt-cream into each of 4 dessert glasses or bowls and top with about 1/2 cup of the fruit mixture.  Repeat with another layer of each.

To make ahead:  Cover and refrigerate the fruit and yogurt cream in separate containers for up to 4 hours.
