Red, White and Blue Parfaits
Red, White and Blue Parfaits are perfect to serve for Memorial Day, the 4th of July or Any day! The red in this recipe comes from fresh red raspberries, the white is from rice pudding, which we purchased but you could also make it from scratch and the blue comes from fresh blueberries of course! Raspberries, rice pudding and blueberries are layered in parfait glasses to make a sensational dessert.
To make things easier this Memorial Day, we decided to go with our favorite rice pudding from Kozy Shack. If you’re looking for a prepared rice pudding that has that down home, homemade taste Kozy Shack is for you. I’ve tried a few other brands but none compare to Kozy Shack. Made with “real” ingredients like eggs, milk, rice, and sugar and it’s taste is hard to beat.
If you prefer to make your own rice pudding, by all means, knock yourself out:) Whenever I have left-over rice the first thing I think of is;” Oh goody, tomorrow we can have rice pudding” but this time I wanted to save some time so I went with the next best thing, Kozy Shack. I’ve included a recipe for homemade rice pudding just in case you wanted to make your own. Whether you decide to make your own or use Kozy Shack, these parfaits are great!
Don’t like rice pudding? You can substitute tapioca pudding, vanilla pudding, banana cream pudding or even white chocolate pudding or cheesecake flavored pudding!! I’ve made this recipe with many different flavors of pudding and my favorite is still lemon. Sugar-free pudding can also be used if you want to cut calories. You can replace the pudding with cool-whip “free” for another lo-cal option.
