Quick! Red, White & Blue Parfaits




I'm sharing these quick and easy patriotic parfaits today.  
They're perfect for your 4th of July Celebration or anytime you need a fast treat for guests.
Parfaits are all over the Internet in various combinations and recipes,
however I've never seen a version as quick as this!

I made 8 parfaits in less than 10 minutes from start to finish!



Raspberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries (washed and towel dried)
Angel Food Loaf or cake (cut into bite-sized chunks)
Cool Whip or other whipped cream
Red, white & blue sprinkles


I found these blue parfait glasses at a garage sale and I just love them!
If you don't have parfait glasses, use small sized Mason jars or drinking glasses.  


Layer the ingredients in the glass dishes.  Alternate the colors.
Here's the order I made mine.
-strawberries
-cake chunks
-small dollop of whipped cream
-blueberries


Repeat the order until you're out of room in the glass.


Place one more dollop of whipped cream on top with red, white & blue sprinkles.
Top with a few more berries.


Quite the presentation for such a quick treat!
I made mine up ahead of time and placed them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.



 Our guests LOVED them! 



For a healthier option,
replace the cake and whip cream with vanilla frozen yogurt.

Mmmmm!

Can't wait to celebrate!  








Here's some more 4th of July ideas for you!
