Layer Up the Yum With This Easy Berries and Ice Cream Parfaits Recipe

Make them in just 15 minutes with store-bought angel food cake

Beat the heat with this elegant berries and ice cream parfaits recipe! This 15-minute dessert is perfect for a quick weeknight treat or a special occasion. You can even turn it into an ice cream party with friends. The treats are packed with flavor and nutrients from the berries, which you can buy in season during the summer months. Use a variety of your favorite berries for added flavor and color. We recommend blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries. To prevent them from browning too quickly, toss them in a bit of lemon juice before using. For a healthier twist, try protein ice cream instead of the store-bought varieties.

There are easy ways to make this berries and ice cream parfaits recipe budget-friendly. Opt for store-brand ice cream to save money compared to premium brands. For extra indulgence, make your own whipped cream with a little heavy cream and vanilla extract — it’s cheaper and tastier.
