After the chicken enchilada casserole I always want something fresh and fruity to cleanse my palate. Looking around the kitchen … bananas were calling my name. Then there were the strawberries in the frig. Have you bought strawberries lately? They are plentiful, tasty and beautiful right now. I don’t know how long they will last so I suggest you buy some every time you stop by the store … like I do :) Chocolate covered strawberries were on the dessert table on Easter Sunday.
Then there is a strawberry banana pie (click on the name or the picture to retrieve the recipe).
I was remembering how good that pie is, but I needed something faster and lighter than pie calories.  And, I give you Strawberry Banana Parfait!  Oh, so easy and so yummy.  Bookmark this – summer’s coming!
Start out with strawberries and bananas.  Drop the banana chips into lemon juice to keep them from turning dark.
 
Cook some sugar and cornstarch, adding in strawberry banana jello (regular or sugar free.)

Start with a dollop of whip cream, add some strawberries, bananas, and layer between good amounts of the thickened strawberry filling.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes to a couple hours.  Top with some whipped cream and serve to your happy family!

Many Blessings and Happy Cooking and Happy Shopping!
