Parfaits are a great dessert option when you are trying to eat healthy and this recipe is a light take on cheesecake. I toasted slices of angel food cake and layered them with fresh strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and a fluffy cream cheese mousse. The best part is the calorie count….only 170 calories for each parfait!
Cran-Raspberry Pina Colada Slush
(makes enough to fill a large punch bowl twice)
2 – 46 ounce bottles of cran-raspberry juice
1 bottle pina colada mix
2 – 2 liter bottles of raspberry ginger ale
1. Mix together the juice and pina colada mix until combined. Divide it between two gallon size freezer bags and lay them on a large cookie sheet in your freezer until solid.
2. Remove the bags from the freezer 30 minutes before serving and allow to melt slightly. Use a rolling pin to smash one bag of the frozen mixture. Dump into the punch bowl and add one bottle of ginger ale. Repeat with the remaining frozen mixture and ginger ale once the first batch is gone.
Happy Blogiversary to me! I am celebrating with these killer Raspberry Peach Scones. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for a year already and I can honestly say it has been worth my time and effort. I hope you have at least tried one recipe for yourself. If not, shame, shame, shame and go try one!!!
One of the great inherited aspects of our old house were these amazing raspberry bushes. This years weather has been a bit tough on them and the bushes are small with less berries than normal, but I’m still making jam at least twice a week instead of every-other day like in years past. As my freezer door proves, I think we will be ok with a smaller crop of berries than normal this year.
