Canada Day Parfait

parfait 011This pretty, red and white parfait is a yummy way to start the birthday celebrations of our True North, strong and free.

All of the ingredients are either homemade or bought at the local Farmer’s Market and are simple, natural and delicious.

And, although some of the items on my ingredient list are very Vancouver specific, I’m hoping the pure, organic equivalent can be found at your local farmer’s market… eh!

Canada Day Parfait

  • Fresh local, organice strawberries or  raspberries
  • Homemade granola (see Happy Hippie Granola recipe)
  • Berry flavoured fromage frais from Little Qualicum Cheeseworks
  • Strawberry or Raspberry Vanilla cordial from Frostbites in Whistler, BC (Canadian maple syrup can be substituted)

Grab a glass and start layering. Berries first, then fromage frais, then a bit of granola. Repeat the process, pour delicious strawberry cordial over everything, top with a fresh berry and, voila! Canada Day Parfait

It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw. – Emily Carr
The Canada we see today does not reflect the one we hold in our hearts. Canadians expect more and they expect better. We should be outraged that environmentally we are among the worst in the industrialized world.David Suzuki
Canada’s the best country in the world. – Justin Beiber
Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.
– Pierre Trudeau
