Lemony Strawberry Parfait Recipe

Lemony Strawberry Parfait Recipe

During National Strawberry Month, serve up this refreshing berry parfait with a zippy new twist: lemon-flavored whipped cream.


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • Lemon zest (optional)


  1. In a chilled medium-size bowl, whip the heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of the sugar and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Gradually add in the remaining sugar and lemon juice, whipping until the cream is thick but not overwhipped.
  2. Alternate layers of whipped cream and sliced strawberries in 8-ounce parfait glasses, then top each treat with a dollop of cream and lemon zest, if you like. Serves 4.
