4TH OF JULY HEALTHY PARFAIT RECIPE

4th of July Healthy Parfait Recipe

The big day for celebrating our American independence is almost here! Don’t let all that sugar slow you down.  These healthy parfaits are an alternative for the kids to sugary desserts at your 4th of July gathering. Plus they offer a nice cool down from the outdoor heat and activities.  Super easy to make too.  Prep the night before and just scope and serve at your 4th of July celebration!  Plus the red, white and blue layers of yummy gelatin and whipped cream add a statement to your patriotic food table.

ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS:

1. red gelatin, 2. blue gelatin, 3. Cool Whip topping

HOW TO MAKE THE PARFAITS:

Each box of gelatin will make four servings, so count your expected guests and purchase enough boxes in each color.  Make red and blue gelatin according to the package directions. It is recommended that you prepare your gelatin and chill it overnight before making your parfaits.

 In tall, clear glasses, alternate layers of red gelatin and Cool Whip topping. Use the photo for a visual to see how these are layered up.  Top your parfait with the blue gelatin.

If you want an even healthier version, substitute raspberries and blueberries for your gelatin or add a layer on top of each gelatin layer. Finish with a slice of any fruit cut into the shape of a star.

NOM NOM! Now eat up and have a

Happy 4th of July!

I know it is hard to believe that the July 4th holiday is almost here! I have been making so many red white and blue pinwheels and banners for my event planners already.  Whew! Thank goodness they know how to plan ahead!  If you are thinking of adding some red white and blue whirling fun PINWHEELS to your party from my pinwheel shop, PINWHEEL PRETTIES– keep in mind, TOMORROW (Tuesday, June 7th, 2016) is the deadline to order to receive custom made items from any of my Etsy shops in time! Yeppers! That’s how busy I am!

Although, I do also have a few sets of pinwheels ready to ship in my JULY 4TH section of my shop that can ship out as late as June 24th to add to your 4th of July event (be sure to read the full Item Details of each listing to confirm turnaround time and shipping) as my custom made to order items do have a longer production time.  I also offer many more red white and blue DECORATIONS in THE PARTY FETTI SHOP for the Fourth of July celebration that are ready to go too!
