Star-Spangled Blueberry Parfaits
Blueberries are health superstars for several reasons. They're loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants and a half-cup serving of blueberries contributes to your daily need for vitamin C and fiber with only 40 calories and zero fat. Fresh, frozen, canned and dried blueberries, as well as blueberry juice, are available throughout the year.

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf (103/4 ounces) frozen reduced-fat pound cake
  • 1/4 cup red currant jelly or other red fruit jam
  • 2 containers (6 ounces each) lowfat vanilla yogurt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

With a serrated knife, cut 14 slices, 1/4-inch thick, from pound cake; reserve remaining cake for another use.

Spread 7 of the slices with jelly; top with plain slices; trim off and discard crusts. With a 1 1/4 inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut a star from four sandwiches; set aside.

Cut sandwich trimmings and remaining whole sandwiches into 3/4-inch squares. Into four 8-ounce parfait or wine glasses, place half the cake squares, half the blueberries, and 1 1/2 containers yogurt, dividing equally.

Top with the remaining cake squares and blueberries. Spoon dollops of the remaining yogurt on top of each parfait; top each with a star and serve.

Note: Other shape cookie cutters may be used. Small cookie cutters can be found at most craft and houseware stores

Serving Size: Makes 4 Servings
