Red, White, and Blue Berry Parfaits Recipe by Mia’s Cucina

This dessert rallies the colors of summer and patriotism. And surely, it will be the star of your holiday dessert table. While this colorful patriotic dessert is perfect for a holiday celebration, it is also the perfect parfait to celebrate summer. Especially because fresh berries are at their peak. So allow yourself to enjoy a guiltless pleasure, as this sweet treat will make any day a special day.

The Berries

What more could possibly be said about the berries? They are fresh and wonderful in the summer. And all you need to do is to wash and pat them dry. If strawberries are not available, raspberries will make a good substitute.

The Pudding

For this dessert, choose your favorite vanilla pudding. Homemade puddings are creamier and more flavorful than those from boxes. If you are looking for a dairy-free pudding, search no further. The recipe for Vanilla Pudding made from Almond Milk will check all the boxes. It is creamy and velvety smooth. Furthermore, because its source is from almond milk it is lower in calories.

While homemade pudding will require a little more time to cook, it is well worth the effort. You can also make it a day or two in advance. Simply cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap. This will prevent a skin from forming on the pudding as well as keep it from weeping.

Adding Texture: Edible Sand

Edible Sand is a quick and easy way to add texture to make your parfait special. And best of all, it is super easy to make. This delicious crunchy cookie topping goes together easily and is ready to be used in a variety of desserts at a moment’s notice. Best of all, it can be made in advance and will store nicely for several weeks.

Servings 2 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Vanilla Pudding made from Almond Milk or your favorite recipe
  • 2 tbsp Edible Sand
  • 1 cup Fresh Strawberries washed and dried, then sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries washed and dried

Instructions
 

  • Create the first layer with sliced or chopped strawberries.
  • Top with 2 1/2 Tablespoons of vanilla pudding.
  • Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of edible sand over pudding.
  • Place 1/4 cup of blueberries on top of the sand.
  • Top with 2 1/2 Tablespoons of vanilla pudding.
  • Lay another 1/4 cup of strawberries on top of vanilla pudding.
  • Followed by another 2 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla pudding.
  • The final layer of 1/4 cup blueberries is placed on top of the pudding.
  • Use 1 teaspoon of edible sand to top off the parfait.

Notes

  • The amount of pudding used to create the layers will differ according to the height and width of the glass vessel.  The parfait glass used in the pictures is 5 1/2 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches in diameter.  If a shorter and wider glass is being used, the amount of pudding used to create the layer will need to be adjusted slightly.  Instead of using 2 tablespoons, adjust this amount to 3 or 4 tablespoons, creating 2 pudding layers.
  • If a shallower and wider parfait dish is being used, adjust the quantity of pudding accordingly.  Perhaps instead of 2 1/2 tablespoons, use 1/4 cup of pudding creating 2 layers rather than 4.
