Berry Heart Parfaits

Berry Heart Parfaits from Weelicious

I’m not sure when it happened, but Valentine’s Day has become more infused with candy and sugar than Halloween. Between the bags full of lollipops, sweet tarts, chocolates and other treats the kids get from their classmates at school, friends and neighbors, it’s like a several day surge of sweets. It’s time to try and put the brakes and focus on a little more balance with all the ooey gooey love.

This year I’m throwing a surprise Valentine dinner for the kids and our family (hopefully none of them will be reading this) filling the dining room with a hundred balloons, the table with flowers and tons and tons of everyone’s favorite foods.

For dessert I want to offer something that’s light and healthy, yet also fulfill that itch for something sweet after dinner. Honestly, this could also be served for breakfast it’s so light and naturally sweet. By mixing a touch of strawberry preserves into plain greek yogurt, trimming a bunch of the strawberries into heart shapes and tossing a handful of blueberries in for added color and texture you can create a decadent parfait that can be prepared hours ahead giving you time to focus on the rest of your meal and of course, all of the love!

    Cream cheese mixed with cool whip might work. You could even use graham crackers crumbs sprinkled on top.

    Those are so sweet! Louisa adores whipped cream so she wouldn't notice at all that there's no candy involved. Yum!
