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
adapted from Strawberry - Rhubarb Fool
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
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt ( I used Chobani Greek Yogurt)
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.
