This recipe is great for fourth of July celebrations! I don’t know about you but I love when the food at an Independence day cookout is themed for the occasion. The fact that these are red white and blue parfaits makes them that much better! This is a super fun patriotic dessert for you and your guests!

These patriotic parfaits are made with plain yogurt, bananas and strawberries and blueberries. It was one my favorite dessert dishes because it is so easy and healthy too!

Yogurt parfaits are my favorite. The kids favorite too! They get to choose whichever ingredients they would like and they absolutely love having choice with their food! The fresh fruit makes it a great, lighter choice and if you want you can even use low-fat yogurt.

Berry parfaits are not hard to make at all, it’s a matter of layering all of the ingredients. This sweet treat with fresh berries makes for a great anytime snack.

What is the ingredient checklist of these 4th Of July Parfaits?

Some other ways you might see these red white and blue parfaits done is with with cool whip and whipped cream. Why not use yogurt and keep it light on the calories? Regardless of which creamy filling you decide to do, the fruits are the best part!

If you want to add more to the treat, you can certainly add a layer of granola for a little razzle dazzle. it’s the perfect dessert with the most simple ingredients!
