Red, White and Blue Parfait

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

This was from our local paper around the 4th of July, for a holiday snack. It was easy and delicious! You could probably sub. homemade granola for the pecan sandies and it would still be great. The prep time is a guess as I don't remember how long it took.

I needed a quick and easy dessert for the 4th of July. This one was a hit! I used vanilla greek yogurt and sugar free Cool Whip. It was fast, easy, quick and delicious! Definitely a keeper!!!
