Fire Cracker Parfait

Recipe inspired by Better Homes & Gardens
Serves 6

Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries pack a healthy punch! These little fruits are not just a sweet summer treat; they're also a sweet way to ward off disease.

Did you know that blueberries contain the antioxidant anthocyanin, which helps keep your memory sharp? Or that raspberries have an anti-cancer compound called ellagic acid? Berries also contain healthy doses of fiber to help with digestion, and studies show they may be good for your heart and bones, too, thanks to their diverse range of polyphenols (a compound found in natural plant food sources).
