Independence Day Parfaits


  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 1 pound blueberries
  • 1 small carton heavy cream
  • 1 cup of vanilla yogurt


  • A standing mixer
  • 6 glass parfait glasses, if possible

Chill the bowl and blade of a standing mixer in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Wash the fruit and slice the strawberries.

Remove the bowl and blade from the fridge and put them in the mixer. Pour in the heavy cream, and start mixing it. Add sugar to taste. Increase speed as high as you can with causing cream to splatter all over your kitchen. Watch the cream like a hawk, until it forms soft peaks, then stop the mixer.

Into each parfait glass, place a dollop of yogurt, then add a dollop of the sweetened cream, and stir gently. Add a handful of blueberries. Add just cream, then a handful of sliced strawberries. Top with cream, and one extra small strawberry slice. Serves 6.

Save the remaining cream jealously, and eat when nobody’s looking.
