Healthy Hint
This dessert provides nutrition and great taste, thanks to 2/3 cup strawberries per parfait. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. They also contain antioxidants that can help maintain healthy cells.
Make it Special
Rub the outside rims of your glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of sugar. Top with an extra dollop of whipped cream sprinkled with grated lime peel.
