Sharadan's Lemon Blueberry Parfait

   I am going to give credit for this recipe to Sharadan, because she is the one that brought it into my life.  To be completely fair though, I actually got the recipe from her mother-in-law.  Sharadan had mentioned it was one of her favorites and I was planning a couple's shower for her and Sam.  We were so excited for the arrival of baby Kenley and I couldn't wait to spoil them with a circus shower.  So, I contacted Liz and got the recipe from her. For that party, I made it in individual parfait cups and topped it with animal crackers.  They were so cute and really good!

   I must have gotten the recipe from Liz while we were on the phone.  I have scoured my emails and texts and couldn't find it in either.  So, if this isn't Liz's recipe exactly, it is darn close.  I made it as one big trifle for our Easter open house and both Sam and Sharadan recognized it immediately.  It is a perfect spring or summer dessert.  Sam said it is one of the rare desserts that is refreshing, and I have to agree.  It is light and bright and fun!
Sharadan's Lemon Blueberry Parfait

Ingredients:

1 angel food cake
1 21 oz can lemon pie filling
3 6 oz containers lemon yogurt
1 12 oz package blueberries (I have used both fresh and frozen and both have worked great)
1 8 oz package whipped topping

  1. Stir together pie filling and yogurt
  2. Either in individual glasses or one large trifle bowl, layer angel food cake, lemon mixture, blueberries and whipped topping until all ingredients are gone
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve




I'll be sharing this recipe at Meal Plan Monday!

    1. That's ok, it was my fault. I've been at a conference for work the past few days and with the long days I haven't had a chance to manage the blog much. Time for a lot of catch up! Thank you so much!

  18. Carlee, that looks like the perfect Spring dessert! I've always wanted to make a trifle. I actually bought a trifle bowl and it is still sitting there waiting to be used. This will be a great addition to my Easter brunch!

    1. You really should make a trifle soon. The best thing about a trifle is you can turn you failed baking project (not that something like that would ever happen) into something delicious and beautiful anyway! If a cake sticks to the pan or cracks while being dumped, it still makes a beautiful trifle.

  19. Love easy recipes like this lemon blueberry parfait. We go blueberry picking in May so I'll have to keep this on my "to try" list.

    1. I am so jealous about the blueberry picking! I don't know of anywhere local to do that. My dad had tried to plant a bush a time or two but has never had any luck.
