Its Too Hot To Cook: Strawberry Banana Parfaits

Thursday, June 16, 2011

 Happy Friday everyone! Here's another its too hot to cook recipe but dessert style! Sometimes you gotta step away from the hot oven and make a simple and classic dessert that's cool and wont make you sweat in your kitchen. Ive been trying to use more agave nectar so if you have some definitely try it out in a few of your recipes that call for sugar! I hope you all enjoy the weekend and I'll see you around very soon =]
Strawberry Banana Parfaits
  • 1 lb strawberries, cleaned, trimmed, and chopped
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 3tbl. blue agave or 2tbl. sugar
  • 1 bag chessmen cookies, slightly crushed
  1. In a bowl, add strawberries, bananas, and agave. stir and store in refrigerator.

  • 3.4 oz banana cream pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups milk(I used less than your average 2 cups.less milk means more creamy!)
  1. In a bowl, add in pudding. whisk in cold milk until thickened. Place in refrigerator.

Whipped Cream
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar( I used 1/3 cup blue agave)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. In a bowl with a whisk attachment, beat cream until slightly thickened, add in sugar and vanilla, and continue beating until completely thickened.
Using whatever glasses or dishes you have, begin layering with the fruit, pudding, whipped cream, and crushed chessmen cookies. This is How I did mine.

Whipped Cream
Repeat And dollop extra cream on top, then add a Cookie Garnish!

Makes 5-7 parfaits

Hi there would you mind letting me know which
webhost you're working with? I've loaded your blog
in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog
loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider
at a fair price? Thank you, I appreciate it!
