Publix has the Dole Fruit Bowls BOGO this week. To a normal person this wouldn’t be anything special. I have decided I am not normal! I am an obsessive couponer! I can admit it. I can admit that I purchased 8 Dole Fruit Bowls, so I could mail in the rebate form to get coupons for 4 more. I can admit that I will hold those 4 coupons until there is another BOGO sale so I will get 8 more Dole Fruit bowls. Good thing my kids love fruit!
If any of you are obsessive couponers like me, and I know you are! You have plenty of fruit in your house! If you are wondering what to do with all of it, I have a great idea for you today! Fruit Parfaits!
This is more of an idea post than a recipe, because there are so many options! Plus, it is extremely easy! Great for the kids to help with.
For dessert tonight I made the kids parfaits (In fancy glasses of course). I layered Animal Crackers, Diced pears, and cool whip. They were a huge hit! Plus, they were fairly healthy! Score one mom!
You could use any type of cookie and these would be great. You could even make one layer ice cream! Ooohhh Yum!
Now, if you are looking for unique breakfast ideas try this! Layer their favorite Cereal or granola, fruit and yogurt! YUM! The combos are endless.
Who says these are only for kids??? These are a great low cal dessert or breakfast option for anyone!
An added bonus is that you choose what to layer. If you have Gluten Free or Dairy Free needs you can play with the ingredients. I used Gluten Free Animal Crackers for my sons. My daughter had Dairy Free Yogurt in hers. A win win all around.
At least now you know what to do with all of the fruit in the pantry!
