You can go decadent and make this parfait with rich, full-flavored ice cream or choose a lighter tasty base such as low fat frozen yogurt or use a 'Nice Cream' base of frozen bananas whirled up in your food processor!

These Patriotic Parfaits will taste divine no matter how you layer them!

Need a quick breakfast option?

Use frozen bananas or yogurt along with granola and berries for a perfect breakfast option on one of those hot mornings when the idea of cooking is out of the question!
