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.

Tasty and Healthy

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