Pentecost is a prominent feast in Christianity. It is also known as Whitsunday.
It celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the eleven Apostles of Christ; of course Judas is persona non grata, with reason.
What better way to celebrate the Birthday of the Church with these delicious parfaits?
It has only three ingredients and you probably already have them in your pantry.
For a breakfast treat you could substitute the whipped topping for yogurt.
1 package of strawberry gelatin
1 cup sliced strawberries divided, Reserve a few for garnish
1 container whipped topping
Prepare gelatin in accordance to package directions. Allow to cool. Set aside 1/3 cup gelatin. Combine ½ cup strawberries to gelatin and pour into the bottom of your parfait glasses. Refrigerate until set. In a separate bowl, add reserved gelatin and remaining strawberries to whipped topping. Store in refrigerator until ready to assemble. Add reserved gelatin to parfait glass on top of gelatin making layers. Add plain whipped topping and garnish with strawberry slices.
To feed a larger crowd you could make a Strawberry Trifle (click here for the recipe) and substitute the angel food cake for red velvet cake. (I use a box cake mix)
Peace be with you,
