National Strawberry Parfait Day
Who knew June 25 was National Strawberry Parfait day? I am so excited because it gives me the opportunity to share one of my quick and easy go to summer recipes. This is also no bake, so perfect even on days that are too hot to turn your oven on. You will look like a rock star serving this up for your next potluck, pool party or even a picnic in the park. Let’s get started.
What you will need:
· 1lb Fresh Srawberries
· ¼ cup granulated sugar
· 1 teaspoon lemon zest
· 1 tablespoon lemon juice
· 1 sleeve of graham crackers
· ¼ cup butter (melted)
· 2 8oz blocks of cream cheese (softened)
· 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
· 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
This may look like a lot but I promise it isn't. Most of this you will likely already have in your pantry or refrigerator. The sweetened and condensed milk may be one of the items you need to pick up. If you aren't making it a common pantry item you should. It has become a staple in my pantry. It jazzes up a cup of coffee, turns a sweet into a savory or gives you an excuse to whip up another dessert. It comes in a can and is shelf stable. What is not to love?
Ok so now that you have your ingredients it is time to whip up the goodness.
