Bush Berry Parfait

My brother came across this lovely looking dessert from Tofu 'N Collards on the This is Why You're Thin Blog (I have a post on there too!). We were hanging out the other night and after getting stuffed on awesome burritos from Chipotle we hit up the store to buy everything for this. Adding Tofutti Better than Sour Cream to get the tart flavor of yogurt is pretty genius. I really liked the "yogurt" base, although maybe a tad sweet. The frozen mixed berries we found had strawberries mixed in, so those we chopped up while cooking them to make the syrup, but I think the berry layer would have been really good all blended up. We put these in the freezer for a few hours before eating so that it would be more like frozen yogurt; the flavor was excellent, but biting into a whole frozen berry was no fun, so that's why I think the blending would make that better. It made 4 perfect-sized servings and was enjoyed by all (including someone a little freaked out by vegan foods).
