4th of July is 'round the corner and if you need an easy, tasty and quick to make NO-BAKE recipe, then this is IT!

This red, white and blue summer berries parfait is just parfait! đŸ˜Š

It uses all seasonal fruits, but you could also change up the flavor combos to suit your taste or occasion. For the 4th of July celebrations, we had to go with red, white and blue berries for the patriotic touch, of course!

These no-bake summer berry parfaits are also ideal for those last minute parties any time of year, and of course, summer picnics (just pack the dessert into mason jars with lids or ice cream tubs with lids and don't forget the cute wooden spoons!).

You can basically use any seasonal fruit, but I love varying red berries (strawberries, cherries, raspberries...), and blueberries or black berries to achieve a layered dessert that looks so pretty and patriotic for the 4th of July!

But you could also use peaches, mangoes, pineapples and any fruit to achieve a summer dessert to suit your party or event colors.

Red, White & Blue Summer Berry Parfaits Recipe

Ingredients: For 4 people

* 250g (8 oz) of strawberries
* 250 (8 oz) raspberries 
* 250g (8 oz) blueberries
* 250 g (8 oz) Biscoff cookies or other sweet crumbly biscuit
* 400 g (4 oz) or 4 pots of natural Greek yogurt
* Sweetener to taste ( I like to use natural sweeteners like honey, but use what you prefer)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* Mint leaves for decor


1) In a bowl combine the yogurt, sweetener to taste and vanilla.

2) Wash and cut your fruit into bite-size morsels.

3) Crumble a couple of cookies into the base of glass, top with a tablespoon or two of yogurt and then red berries. 

4) Add a layer of cookies, yogurt and then blueberries to create your layered dessert. Repeat until the glass is full. Finish with layer of yogurt and more cookies crumbled on top. Decorate with mint leaves.

TIPS: This dessert can be made up to 3 days in advance. Or, for an even simpler dessert idea, why not provide all the ingredients in a desert station or bar, and let your guests have fun creating their own parfaits at the party! :)
