Red, White and Blue Parfaits

I can’t believe that the Fourth of July is right around the corner! Whenever we’re getting close to celebrating a major holiday I get excited about what I’m going to make. Watch this Red White and Blue Parfaits video for a fun breakfast or snack you can enjoy this Fourth!

Red, White, Blue Parfaits recipe from weelicious.com

The best part about this recipe is allowing kids to make it on their own. In fact, if you feel like sleeping in you can leave all the ingredients at eye level for your older kids so they can make them on their own. If you’re not so sure about leaving your kids in the kitchen on their own you can turn it into a fun activity to do as a family. I use big tubs of greek yogurt (plain or flavored yogurt works great too), bowls of washed berries and Grape Nuts, granola or other crunchy whole grain cereal you enjoy. When it’s hot outside and you want to eat a complete meal in a glass they’re the perfect choice. Every bite is creamy, crunchy and totally sweet!

If you get as excited about a theme as I do and want your Fourth of July spread to be all red, white and blue you have to add these to the menu along with Blue Corn Crusted Fish Sticks, Watermelon Star Bites, Magical Fruit Wands and Tomato Bruschetta for a spread no one will forget!

    Used to love grape nuts until realizing they contain gmo soy. I’m going to try these for breakfast on the 4th with granola.

    Thought this may be fun to make for the kids while we’re there! Obviously any cereal or granola would work. I figured it’s probably all ingredients you would have around anyway : ).

    Hi Catherine,

    This looks very yummy and I am thinking of using it for an upcoming party. Will they last if I make them earlier that day and serve in the afternoon? How about the night before?

    Thanks for all the great recipes!

    As always, great post, great work. I just did a summer fruit, cream parfait with simple syrup. If you have the time come by and take a look.
