I looked at my precious pint of just-picked wild blueberries. Decision time: what’s the best way to enjoy them?
I didn’t want to just eat them plain because they wouldn’t go very far. But I didn’t want to bake them into a dessert, adding sugar or anything else unhealthy. And I didn’t want to freeze them because they’re so extra-good when you eat them fresh.
So I came up with a perfect solution — Summer Delight Parfait.
What’s so perfect about it?
It’s healthy — made from whole foods with no added sugar, salt, or oil
It makes your supply of blueberries stretch far
It’s super-quick to make
It’s so cute
It’s flexible — you could use any variety of fruits and berries
So you want to see how to make it? Just was the video below to see how simple it is.
First make the Strawberry Cream:
1 box Mori-Nu Silken tofu
2 Medjool dates, or 4-6 smaller dates (to taste)
2 Tablespoons raw cashews
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
Blend all ingredients in a good blender until creamy.
Then assemble the parfait:
Layer the strawberry cream in a small, pretty glass with a variety of fresh fruits and/or berries.
Top with a fresh, colorful berry and mint leaf, to make it irresistible.
Have fun! Use any berries or fruit you have available. Impress your guests. They’ll think you worked hard to put this delightful parfait together.
