The amount of each ingredients for this recipe depends on your whim and on how many servings you want to make. This dessert is so simple, you don’t need to worry too much about specific measurements.
Since it’s July, we used fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries for a red, white, and blue theme. Choose your favorite seasonal berries and add as much or as little of each ingredient as you want. For a refreshing twist, try using frozen fruit.
Pour heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip the cream until soft peaks form (about 5 min.). We like the taste of the rich cream without added sugar, but feel free to mix in 1-2 Tablespoons of sweetener, sprinkling in just a little at a time.
Layer the fresh whipped cream and fruit into a serving dish. You can mix the pecans throughout the parfait or sprinkle them on top. They add a nutty crunch to this creamy, sweet and tart dessert. The perfect combination!
If you’re serving these at a party, you can prepare your parfaits in advance and keep them covered and refrigerated until it’s time for dessert.
