Cranberry Orange Parfait

This is an incredibly healthful dessert. 

16 ounces Organic Greek Yogurt  (if you use regular yogurt it must be drained for 1 hour over some paper towels in a strainer)
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
10-oz can whole cranberry sauce
1 organic orange
2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted

Add the marmalade to the yogurt in a bowl and stir together.

Whip the cream until it begins to thicken.  Add the vanilla and sugar and continue to whip until soft peaks just begin to form.  Add the cranberry sauce to a medium bowl.  Stir half of the whipped cream into the cranberry sauce.  Zest 2 teaspoons of the orange rind into the sauce.  Cut the orange in half and add 2 tablespoons of the fresh squeezed juice. Fold together gently.

Add the remaining 1/2 of the whipped cream to the yogurt bowl and fold together gently.

Layer the yogurt and cranberry mixtures in 4 large parfait glasses or wine glasses, and top with more whipped cream (get the real stuff in the can) and sprinkle with chopped pecans. 

Chill before serving.

NOTE: If you are taking antiobotics and need to replenish your good bacteria with the Yogurt wait at least 2 hours before or after taking the antiobotics so that they don't kill off those good bacterias in the Yogurt!
