I’m whipping up some All American Parfaits for dogs for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday! Trust me, your dog will love these tasty treats! I’ll show you how I make them and share my recipe at the end of this post.
You can make these parfaits in a jiffy! You only need a few ingredients and you can get started! Freezing them and then softening them in the refrigerator are the only steps that take some time.
The crust is the first thing you have to make. Grind up the kibble, add some melted coconut oil until it is a moist mixture. Press the mixture into the bottom of silicone cupcake molds so it is about 1/4 inch thick. Place in the oven and bake for seven to eight minutes. Remove from the oven, leave the crusts in the molds, and cool completely.
While crust is baking and then cooling, you need to puree the strawberries. Wash and dice them, and put them in a container to puree them.
Make sure you puree them until they are nice and smooth, not lumpy.
These are All American Parfaits for Memorial Day, so red, white, and blue are the key. Layer about 1/2 inch of strawberry puree on top of your crust, add about 1/2 inch of yogurt on top of the strawberry layer, being careful to keep the red out of the white. I find my tongue works well to gently smooth the yogurt over the strawberries. Top the yogurt with whole blueberries. As with everything I make, I do suggest taste testing along the way.
Place the parfaits into the freezer until they are firm. Remove from their molds and place in the refrigerator to soften. Serve these beautiful desserts on a festive plate.
Don’t be shy, go ahead and have a lick or two of your tasty desserts! They are really good and perfect for a hot day!
