How to Make Red White and Blue Parfaits

Step 1

In an 8-ounce jar, crush up about 6 or 7 cookies into the bottom. Make sure the cookie layer covers the bottom of the jar, use more if you have to.

Step 2

Slice about 6 strawberries and add enough to create a layer of strawberries on top of the cookies.

Step 3

Open a Petit Pot and add about half the pudding on top of the strawberries.

Step 4

Add a handful of blueberries, enough to create an even layer on top of the pudding. Top with additional sliced strawberries, blueberries and a cookie.

Tips for Red White and Blue Parfaits

• I used the Petit Pot Organic Vanilla Bean Pudding. One of their jars equals one parfait, so if you want to make more just use this recipe and multiply by how many you need. You can also make vanilla pudding from scratch if you would like. My Homemade Vanilla Malt Pudding would be perfect with this recipe too!

• I use the Whole Foods 365 Organic Vanilla Wafers in this recipe. You can use any crunchy cookie, even animal crackers or shortbreads!

• If you want to make these ahead of time, you can. Just don’t put the cookies on top as they can get soggy. Just save that for the las step before serving, because if the cookies sit in the pudding, they will get soggy. I tested this for a few hours in the fridge, and the cookies on the bottom were fine because the layer of strawberries keeps them from getting soggy from the pudding. So, if you are making ahead of time, make the jar and leave the cookies off the top. Cover the jar with plastic wrap so the pudding doesn’t dry out. When ready to serve, just remove the plastic wrap and you can just add the extra cookie on top!

• You can also use raspberries in place of strawberries if you prefer or if that’s what you have on hand. They would also be delicious and are red!

• I used an 8-ounce glass tumbler to make these in. You can use any type of glass or jar you have on hand. Mason jars, recycled jam jars, whatever you have!

FAQ's

Can I make homemade pudding?

Yes, of course! If you are making your own, then try my Homemade Vanilla Malt Pudding.

Can I use other fruit?

Yes, you can use raspberries in place of strawberries if you are trying to keep the red, white, and blue theme. If you are making these and it's not Fourth of July then you can use blackberries, mulberries, or even stone fruits like peaches, plums, or nectarines.

Can I make these ahead of time?

This is not a great dessert to make ahead of time as the cookies can get soggy. This kind of dessert is best made when you are ready to eat or serve them right away!
