Today’s red, white, and blue creation are simple but extremely yummy patriotic parfaits.  Fresh raspberries and juicy blueberries and layered between a deliciously creamy goodness.  

The cream layer is composed of cream cheese, whipped cream and 2 sugars along with a little vanilla.  It is sweet yet has a slight tartness from the cream cheese and sour cream.  They have a sort of a cheesecake quality to it.  It is fabulous. This is the way to eat fresh berries!

  1. You’re getting ready for the 4th nice and early! But these look so good I could certainly find an excuse to eat them any day! Looks like they’d be perfect for a picnic in a container with a lid. Thanks, Chris
