Red, White and Blue Parfait

I saw this recipe today on Facebook from  Pinch My Salt and thought it would be perfect for our Red, White and Blue Party on Foodie Friends Friday.  I had all the ingredients so had to make it... take pictures and write the post quickly...  It is a wonderful light dessert that you could make any time.  Pinch My Salt's recipe only used a strawberry rhubarb compote but I wanted it blue so made a blueberry sauce too.

Red, White and Blue Parfait


Ingredients:
For compote
Rhubarb
Strawberries
Raspberries (total of 2 cups of fruit)
Sweetener to taste- I used honey
For Blueberry Sauce
Blueberries (used only about 1/4 cup)
Sweetener to Taste
For Topping
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt ( I used Chobani Greek Yogurt)

Instructions:
Rhubarb, Strawberry, Raspberry Compote ~ Add rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries and sweetener in sauce pan with a small amount of water (about a tablespoon).  Cook on medium heat until it is mushy and start to thicken.  Let cool.  I cooled mine in the freezer.  Set aside.
Blueberry Sauce ~Add blueberries and sweetener to saucepan, cook over medium low heat until they start to have some liquid.  I didn't cook mine all the way through.  Set aside to cool.
Topping ~ Add whipping cream, powdered sugar and yogurt in mixing bowl.  Whip until peaks form.

Assemble:  Layer Rhubarb, Strawberry, Raspberry Compote and topping.  Top with blueberry sauce.  Enjoy

This would also taste good with some granola.
