Ingredients for Cherry Sauce
- sour cherries (pitted): 1-quart

Let us start with the Banana-Maple Parfait. We are going to make layers with highly delicious ingredients. Firstly, spoon the yogurt into the bottom of a small bowl, jar or wide glass. Layer with banana slices over the yogurt, drizzle with maple syrup. Repeat layers as many times as possible.
To make the Cherry Sauce, take cherries with sugar and stir to combine in a saucepan. Put over medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 min., uncovered. The cherry mixture should thicken. If the Cherry Sauce seems dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.
Top the Banana-Maple Parfait with ⅓ cup cherry sauce and sprinkle with almonds to serve.
It would be beautiful to garnish the Parfait with whole cherries, so leave several for this purpose!
You can use the Cherry Sauce immediately or refrigerate it for future desserts.
