“It makes me want a hot dog reeeeal bad!”
(Love that movie.)
Today’s red, white and blue concoction was quite patriotic and tasted great to boot! Definitely a winner in my book.
My patriotic parfait was inspired by Angela. I created this breakfast treat by layering strawberry banana “soft serve“, Oikos vanilla Greek yogurt and a handful of blueberries several times until my fancy-dancy wine glass was filled to the brim.
I created the “soft serve” by blending a frozen banana (broken into chunks) with a handful of frozen strawberries and a bit of cold water to get everything to move around a bit.
I would highly recommend doing this in a food processor if you have one. That was my original plan (see photo below), but when I plugged in my Cuisinart food processor, it decided to be moody and didn’t work. I’ve probably used this food processor less than 10 times, so I was pretty bummed that it already wasn’t working.
Fortunately my blender did the trick (I use an old Krups blender that I love), but I had to add a bit of water and it took a bit longer to get the soft serve smooth and creamy than it would have had I used a food processor.
Even without the food processor, this breakfast turned out quite tasty.
Sadie clearly agreed.
All this red, white and blue talk has me awfully excited for the 4th of July!
My family, Ryan and I have plans to head to the Florida Keys for a long weekend of scuba diving over the 4th. I can’t wait!!!
