Parfaits are easily one of the best things to make for breakfast, but they also work as a dessert. During the summer, you can find fruit that are in season to make your parfait even better. Definitely the easiest summer dessert. Simple layers of whipped cream and the season’s best berries. Dress it up a bit by layering the sweetened cream and berries with granola, cubed pound cake or lemon curd! Use the right fruit, and you can find yourself enjoying a patriotic dessert with a red, white, and blue fruit parfait recipe.
