HAPPY NATIONAL STRAWBERRY PARFAIT DAY

Strawberry-Mascarpone-Hazelnut-Parfait is a recipe you really will want to try.

What a delicious way to celebrate National Strawberry Parfait Day! It is really not until Saturday the 25th but I wanted to share these recipes ahead of time. 

The fresh strawberries around my hometown have been so sweet and beautiful. My husband and I have sure eaten our fair share.

I  was a finalist at the Pillsbury Bake-off Contest in 2014 and one of the parfaits I created was inspired by that recipe. This is beautiful and tastes awesome.  Grab some fresh strawberries and give this a try.

I like to use these 9oz plastic parfait glasses that can be found at craft stores,  Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store.

 Another delicious  Strawberry Parfait is one I made with yogurt.

 

strawberry parfait, yogurt, strawberriesMy grandchildren love making this one.

I set up containers of strawberry yogurt.  I had graham cracker crumbs, vanilla wafer crumbs, and 2 kinds of granola as an option for the crust.  We had fresh strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.  We had fat free Cool-Whip, and honey as a topping.  Just build layers with a crust, yogurt, strawberries, bananas, cool-whip and your choice of toppings.
