June 25th - National Strawberry Parfait Day

Let's celebrate National Strawberry Parfait Day with our Perfect Parfait Cupcakes!

June 25th is celebrated by a select group of people who thoroughly enjoy strawberries.  If you are looking for a reason to celebrate - look no further.  We've come up with a very simple strawberry parfait cupcake recipe that you can make and eat it a jiffy.

June 25th - National Strawberry Parfait Day

Strawberry Parfait Recip Ingredients

6 Vanilla cupcakes
1 pint of strawberries
whipped cream (homemade or store bought)
6 parfait cups, wine glasses or small plastic beverage glasses
2 - 3 teaspoons sugar (optional)

Strawberry Parfait Recipe Directions

Wash and thinly slice strawberries.  Place them in a bowl and sprinkle with 2 -3 teaspoons of sugar if desired.

Cut each vanilla cupcake in half horizontally.  Place the bottoms of the cupcakes in the bottom of your serving cups.

Spoon 1/12 of the strawberries over the cupcake bottoms followed by 1 -2 tablespoons of whipped cream.

Place the tops of the cupcakes on top of the whipped cream.  Follow with more strawberries and more whipped cream.  Top with a strawberry slice and a mint sprig.

Enjoy your National Strawberry Parfait Day with style.  If you're looking for an alternative strawberry parfait that you can eat for breakfast, replace the whipped cream with vanilla yogurt and replace the cupcake (*GASP*) with granola or a cereal of your choice.  This is another great way to celebrate June 25th National Strawberry Parfait Day, and it is a very healthy start to any day.

For yet another alternative, if you're going to be having your dessert outside, why not replace the whipped cream with vanilla ice cream?  It's cool summertime dessert that your kids might even eat.  I must confess that when I make parfaits with ice cream, I don't leave out the whipped cream.  I just add the ice cream as an extra!

Happy June 25th National Parfait Day!
