This Healthy Strawberry Parfaits recipe is so easy to make and it tastes so good! It’s a great way to showcase my favorite summer fruit – the humble strawberry. Strawberries mean summer to me. I absolutely love the burst of freshness and color they bring to smoothies, fruit salads and desserts! I was very happy to learn that they are packed full of nutrients too.

To make this recipe, you simply prepare a strawberry puree and mix together soft cheeses like ricotta and cream cheese with powdered sugar, vanilla and water. I then assemble the dessert in simple glasses, layering up the fruity and creamy mixtures until I have a striped red and white delight!
