Everyone who knows me, or has read this blog for a decent amount of time, is aware that Trevor loves strawberries. Love is an understatement. That kid would commit crimes for strawberries. Seriously.
I keep waiting for his excitement over them to wane, but nope. Five years in now and he still goes crazy at the site, smell, and certainly taste.
My friend Melissa…she know this. And she’ll send me recipes that have strawberries in them. And my friend Heidi…she knows this. She stopped by last week with a bushel.
I thought Trevor might faint.
Not willing to let any of those berries go bad, I’ve been taking full advantage of them. Strawberry smoothies, strawberry shortcake scones, strawberry pancakes, and these strawberry parfaits.
It’s pretty much been a strawberry love fest over here.
You can make this dessert as complicated (depending on the pound cake you bake), or uncomplicated (depending on the pound cake you buy…Sara *cough* Lee *cough*), but either way, you should totally make it. It’s so easy and so delicious.
Easy Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits
Prep time: 15 minutes
• 8, 1/2 inch, slices of pound cake, cubed (homemade or store bought) – I used this recipe
• 2 cups medium strawberries, quartered
• 2 cups whipped cream (or Cool Whip) – I used this recipe
• milk, optional
Divide ingredients among 4 parfait glasses, layering as you choose. Poor a little milk down the side of glass to soften the pound cake pieces, if desired.
