Strawberry blueberry fruit parfaits with layers of fresh fruit, granola, and whipped cream. It’s the perfect dessert for all those Summer berries!

This post was originally published back in December of 2016. Initially, it was meant to be a romantic dessert option.

You know, one glass, two spoons, you get the idea. However, that really didn’t catch people’s attention.

So, we’ve decided to redo the whole post. Including, updated photos and instructions.

While I still think of it as a dessert to be shared with someone, I feel like it will do better if it’s presented in a different a light.

For this publication, I want everyone to see it as a way to use up those extra Summer berries. Let’s face it, you got to do something with that giant carton of strawberries.

Why not make strawberry blueberry fruit parfaits and top them with whipped cream? Speaking of which, let’s get started!

Four of the fruit parfaits served in stemless wine glasses.

Instructions for Strawberry Blueberry Fruit Parfaits:

To begin, start by preparing your whipped cream. Now, we like homemade versions, as evidenced by the fact we have three (3) different recipes on our site.

If you’re not using homemade, then you can skip this step altogether. In a large mixing bowl (using a hand mixer or whisk) or stand mixer, combine the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.

Whip the ingredients for about two (2) minutes, or until you see stiff peaks. Set it aside.

Chopped strawberries have been added to the glass for the second layer.

After that, wash your blueberries and strawberries and pat them dry. Chop the strawberries into bite-sized pieces.

Then, grab your glass and add some of the granola. That will be the first layer. The second layer consists of chopped strawberries.

Keep in mind you’re making four (4) parfaits. So go slow and try to portion out the ingredients accordingly. Use our pictures as references.

Whipped cream being piped over the chopped strawberries for layer three.

At this point, you can top the strawberries with the third layer, the whipped cream. Kim used a piping bag, but it’s not necessary for the recipe.

A spoon works just fine. Onward to layer four.

The fresh blueberries being added to the glass for layer four.

Sprinkle in some fresh blueberries. That brings us to layer five, more granola!

Again, don’t go crazy, you need to ensure you have enough to do this three (3) more times. Take a look at the photo below to see an approximate amount.

Crunchy granola has been sprinkled over the blueberries for layer five.

Afterward, once you’ve sprinkled on your crunchy granola, it’s time for the final layer.

More light and fluffy whipped cream. That’s it, the strawberry blueberry fruit parfaits are done!

As always, Kim and I hope you enjoy this recipe. It should be a simple dessert to put together for your family and friends. In closing Kim and I wish everyone all the best 🙂

Lastly, whipped cream has been added to complete the fruit parfaits.

Fruit Parfait Tips:

What is a parfait made of? Usually, they are made with fruit and yogurt. If you’d feel better using yogurt instead of whipped cream, feel free to do so.

With that being said, I make no claims that it’s a, “healthy alternative.” I suppose it could add extra protein and reduce the sugar content.

Of course, that depends on how many grams of sugar are in your favorite yogurt. Check the label, then compare it to our nutritional facts.

Will granola get soggy in a parfait? Sure, it will over time. But, that depends on how you layer the dessert.

We assume, the closer the granola is to a liquid product, the quicker it will get soggy.

Can parfaits be made ahead of time? Absolutely, but I recommend no more than a day or so in advance.

Why? Because, if left uncovered in your fridge, they could absorb some other, less than desirable, “flavors.” For example, I wouldn’t store them (uncovered) in fridge with left over fish…
