Red, White and Blue Parfait Recipe!

 
Makes 4 
 
Ingredients:

8 ounces fresh strawberries (for about 1 C chopped)
1/4 cup sugar
4 ounces store-bought pecan sandies, see note (about 8 cookies, for 1 C crumbs)
1/2 cup Cool Whip Lite
4 teaspoons Cool Whip Lite (to garnish)
1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
8 ounces about 1 c fresh blueberries

Directions:

1 Cap strawberries, cut into bite-size pieces and place them in small mixing bowl.
 
2 Sprinkle sugar over berries and stir. Use spoon to crush berries slightly so they will release juice. Set aside.
 
3 Place cookies in zipper-top plastic bag and use rolling pin to crush them finely. Set aside.
 
4 In small bowl or 2-cup measure, stir together 1/2 C of whipped topping and yogurt until well blended. Set aside.
 
5 Divide cookie crumbs evenly in bottom of 4 parfait glasses or other dessert dishes (that hold at least 1 cup).
 
6 Spoon strawberry mixture evenly over crumbs.
 
7 Spoon yogurt mixture evenly over strawberries.
 
8 Divide blueberries evenly, and scatter them over yogurt mixture in each dish.
 
9 The dishes may be served at once or covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated until ready to serve, up to 3 hours.
 
10 Just before serving, dollop 1 tsp of whipped topping on top of each dish as a garnish.
 
11 Note: Plain shortbread cookies, vanilla wafers or butter cookies may be substituted for the pecan sandies.
