4th of July Red, White and Blue Yogurt Parfait



Today is National Strawberry Parfait Day - who knew? There is a day for everything now and I am so pleased that I’ve been identified by the Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association as someone who not only supports locally grown fruit and produce but I also write about it. I was asked to submit the inaugural post for their blog Produce Bites! I created a recipe that is right on time for National Strawberry Parfait Day and the 4th of July. 


Red White & Blue Parfait


Ingredients
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
32 oz. Vanilla Greek Yogurt


Method
Clean berries by rinsing under cool water and drying with paper towel.
Slice strawberries thickly.
Placing a layer of Greek yogurt in the bottom of a parfait cup or martini glass.
Follow with a layer of strawberries.
Add a layer of Greek yogurt, add blueberries, and finally add an additional layer of yogurt and blackberries.
Depending on the size of the container, you may repeat.
End with a final layer of yogurt and top with strawberries in the shape of a star.
Decorate the border with blueberries.
