Harvest Parfaits

Harvest Parfaits. A real food simple treat for Halloween

 

Being a foodie and particularly a real food foodie, I’m always bothered by the excess of sugary junk that gets devoured on Halloween. No one, and I mean no one, needs that much candy, let alone the chemical additives that are included to it to make it taste acceptable.

Our kids don’t eat a lot of candy, since they don’t eat much sugar on a regular basis it only takes a couple pieces of candy before they say they’re done.

But I do like having a variety of real food treats that they can enjoy and I don’t cringe about the artificial food dyes.

Nature is filled with beautiful, vibrant and tasty colors. Why not enjoy that real thing, rather than an artificial copy?!

 

Harvest Parfaits:

Fruit Ingredients:
1 cup black grapes
2 cups strawberries, quartered
3 cups cantaloupe melon, cubed
1 1/2 cups pineapple, cut into chunks
2 bananas, sliced*

Directions:
Place 1/4 to 1/2 cup (depending on glass size) fruit in glasses, graduating the colors from dark at the bottom to light at the top:
Black grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe
Cantaloupe, pineapple, bananas
Strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple

Whipped Topping Ingredients:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions:
Whip heavy cream until peaks form. Drizzle in maple syrup and mix until combined. Spoon whipped cream onto the top of all the parfaits. Serve immediately or chill until ready.

*Bananas: if you are not serving immediately, dip the banana slices into a bowl of salted water to keep from turning brown (don’t worry- you won’t taste the salt!) One pinch of sea salt to one cup water. Stir to mix salt and then dip the banana slices.
