What’s Fresh: July
Independence day is upon us, and nothing says the 4th of July like a red white and blue dessert! While the holiday itself may be over before we know it, this berry patriotic parfait is too delicious to limit to one weekend. This red white and blue parfait brings you all the sweetness of fresh berries with the savory decadence of fresh cream.
2 cups raspberries 2 cups pitted cherries, sliced 2 cups blueberries 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 6 cups fresh cream 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tbsp confectioners sugar 1 tablespoon lemon zest
1. In a small bowl, mix together raspberries, cherries, and blueberries with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Set aside
2. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form.
3. In another bowl, mix the newly whipped cream, and lemon zest.
4. In 6 small glasses layer ½ cup fruit mixture, followed by ½ cup yogurt, ½ cup fruit, and another ½ cup yogurt. Top with a sprig of mint, a few blueberries, or lemon zest. Enjoy!
