For Independence Day I decided to make this wonderful parfaits. Oh boy did they turn out delicious! The only problem was the red, white, and blue theme I was going for… didn’t exactly turn out so red white and blue.

Although they didn’t give you the Americana feel I was going for they turned out delicious seriously delicious!! I used broken butter cookies in between each layer of delight and let me tell you the crowd went wild.

Although I would have loved to have a nice bright red and blue color for each of these layers I wasn’t going to add food color to pull of the affect.
So simple and so delicious!

Red Layer:
  • Puréed Fresh Strawberries
  • 8 ounces of whip topping
White layer:
  • Sweetened coconut flakes
  • Coconut extract
  • 8 ounces of whip topping
Blue layer:
  • 1 can of black berry pie filling
  • 8 ounces of whip topping
  • Butter Cookies (or Biscotti, Nilla Wafers, or ANY plain cookie)
  • Stevia as needed

  1. Pretty basic directions here.  For each container of whipped topping combine enough fruit to make sure that the whipped topping has a generous amount of fruit. Test to make sure the whipped topping is sweet enough. If not add some stevia.
  2. With the white coconut layer add a few tablespoons of coconut flakes, then start adding the coconut extra slowly. I would suggest about ¼ of a teaspoon at a time. Keep in mind you can always add more you can never take it away.
  3. Crumble butter cookies still leaving them a bit chunky so that they will not get too soggy.
  4. Start off by layering from the bottom blackberry, cookies, coconut, cookies, strawberry, cookies, or the other way around. It doesn’t matter what you do to it… its delicious!
  5. I topped mine off with a cute pretzel butter cookie.
