Activia Dessert- Vanilla Bean Strawberry Parfait
After dinner tonight I was in the mood for something sweet. Since we had pot roast and potatoes with gravy, I definitely wanted something light. This was the perfect time to try out Activia's new Dessert product. I obtained a coupon from their website http://www.activia.us.com/dessert.aspx for $1.00 off my purchase and while I was at the store I picked up some strawberries and cookies to go with it. Almost any cookie will work: gingersnaps, graham crackers, shortbread, wafers, etc. With this blog post I am entering a contest sponsored by Foodbuzz. Blog post, contest and dessert all in one...yay me for multitasking.
Vanilla Bean Activia Dessert, you will need at least 2 containers depending on how big your martini glass is
1-2 cups strawberries diced
1 cup of cookies crumbled
Layer all ingredients in whatever order you prefer in a martini glass, top with a strawberry and whole cookie and enjoy. If you don't have martini glasses (which I think makes the dessert look romantic and indulgent) feel free to use whatever you have on hand.
