Colorful Christmas Parfait


by Kara Kimbrough ​


1 cup crumbled graham crackers

2 tablespoons softened butter or margarine (or non-fat margarine)

2 teaspoons sugar or sugar substitute

2 cups cranberry sauce, cooled 

2 cups Cool Whip

2 drops green food coloring


Very gently fold the green food coloring into the Cool Whip twice and set aside. 

Be careful, since Cool Whip will curdle with the food coloring.


If you use fresh cream, you won’t have this problem, but you will have the calories. In a wine goblet or pretty parfait glass, layer 2 tablespoons of graham crackers, then a half cup of cooled cranberry sauce, and top with one-fourth of the green Cool Whip.
