Layered Fruit Parfait

Everyone loves fresh fruit, and serving it in a layered parfait makes quite an impressive statement. Choose fruits that match the color scheme of your party, and alternate with whipped cream for a fun striped element. We used kiwi, pineapple, strawberries and blueberries.


To make fruit parfaits, you'll need: diced fresh fruit; whipped topping; piping bag; mason jars; and spoons.

Fill Piping Bag

Fill piping bag with whipped topping, and cut off the tip of the bag. Add the first diced fruit layer, and then pipe a layer of whipped topping.

Add Second Layer

Add second layer of diced fruit in another color.

Add Third Layer

Continue layering whipped topping and diced fruit.

This colorful treat makes a tasty addition your guests will love.
