The Fourth of July is a date that everyone at home anxiously awaits. Every year we get together with friends to have breakfast, but this breakfast is extra special since it’s shared with all the neighbors on the block! On this patriotic day all the children bring their bikes, we sing the national anthem and eat together. What I love the most is that we celebrate this get-together at breakfast time, which lets us bring a wide variety of dishes, from vegetable frittata to fresh and juicy watermelon. It’s also wonderful to see how some of the neighbors use their creativity and share dishes that use the colors of the flag: red, white and blue. This year I wanted to be among the people who bring a plate with these three colors. I was thinking over several ideas, and in the end I decided on something that we make regularly at home-a parfait-only that on this occasion I picked red and blue fruits to go with the white yogurt. What I like about this parfait is that it’s delicious, quick to prepare and very light; perfect for this warm summer morning. I’ve named it “Independence Parfait” and this is what you’ll need to make it. MORE + LESS -

    Take a glass and place a layer of raspberries at the bottom. Then take the yogurt, open it, and add a layer over the raspberries. Place a layer of blueberries on top and cover with more yogurt. Next, add a layer of strawberries followed by another layer of yogurt. Finally, top it off with more blueberries and cover with the remaining yogurt. You can garnish the top of your parfait with more fruit if you wish.

    It’s that easy!
  • If you prefer to use natural yogurt, you can! If you need some extra sweetening, try adding a little honey.

Expert Tips

  • Try out other yogurt flavors, as long as they are white. I have tried using coconut yogurt and it was riquísimo!
