Have a Red, White and Blue(berry) Memorial Day!

Cookbook - Wholesome Temptation

Whether you’re celebrating at home or having a picnic in the park, here’s some healthy, patriotic recipes that feature an antioxidant powerhouse--berries. Recent studies have found that the antioxidant properties of anthocyanidin, the substance that gives berries their rich colors, can slow age-related cognitive decline.  Yes, that makes berries brain food!

The American Parfait

We’ve taken a classic “red-white-and blue” dessert and made it healthier by using yogurt instead of whipped cream.

½ c. blueberries
½ c. raspberries
1 c. strawberries
¼ c. 100% pineapple or orange juice
1 c. organic fat-free vanilla yogurt
½ c. granola

Mix fruits and juice together in a large bowl; marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Layer 1/14 cup of yogurt, ¼ cup of fruit mixture and 2 tablespoons granola in a small cup. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 4 individual parfaits. Serve cold. Makes 4 servings.
