Traditional Recipes Redone…Healthier

Patriotic Fruit Parfaits

5 Comments

While crafting menus for next week’s big celebration, consider topping off your July 4th picnic with a patriotic dessert to stun the crowd. Red, White, and Blue never looked so tasty! Better yet, these desserts can be served ready-to-eat in mason jars, making them the perfect portable party treat! My only recommendation is to make a few healthy swaps as far as ingredients are concerned. You’ll get your fair share of Vitamin C with the berries, but the heavy cream and angel food cake may be pushing it a little… Opt for greek yogurt instead of the cream, and consider a healthy recipe to make your own angel food cake to crumble as the base of your parfait. These little swaps will slash the calories without it sacrificing it’s status as a crowd favorite. Enjoy the glow of the fireworks next week and time with family and friends!
