Here, all sorts of yummy, summery things are smushed and spooned into a glass by your darling little mess makers, who will enjoy making this treat as much as eating it.
What you'll need:
- Vanilla-y cookie of your choice (shortbread, vanilla wafers and rich tea biscuits all work well)
- Plastic zip-top bag
- Rolling pin
- Store-bought rice or vanilla pudding
- Blueberries, washed and dried
- Clear plastic cups (you can also use your own drinking glasses)
What you'll do:
Put the cookies in a plastic bag and seal it well. Let your little powerhouses smash the cookies up by taking a rolling pin to the bag. The cookies should be broken up into little pea-sized pieces.
Lay out all the ingredients in separate bowls, and start making the parfait. Put a spoonful of cookies in the bottom of a cup, then pudding, then blueberries, then more pudding, then cookies and so on, ending with a mixture of cookies and blueberries on the top. Chill the parfaits for a few hours in the refrigerator to help the flavors blend. Devouring them on the spot is just fine too.
