Individual-sized desserts are my favorite treats to make, especially since they’re so easy to serve for a gathering. This recipe for Berry Tropical Parfaits is the perfect single-serve dessert that uses an easy layering technique to transform strawberries, mango and coconut into elegant treats. Sweetened whipped topping is also layered in, which gives the dessert a creamy and fluffy consistency. The best part about this dessert is that it contains only 77 calories and 3 grams of protein per serving. It’s truly a feel-good dessert delight!

If you’re not a fan of the fruit listed in the recipe, swap in a combination of other berries like blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Moreover, you can prep these parfaits ahead by letting them sit in the fridge overnight in step 3. Then, garnish each parfait before serving.
