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.

Happy 4th of July!
