Ever since I made a batch of homemade lemon curd, I’ve been adding it to pretty much every dessert I managed to whip up in the last few weeks. It adds tangy, sweet, summer-y touch to everything it touches. Summer, I’m so glad you’re here!

I made this parfait for my MIL for Mother’s Day. She loves lemon curd, so I was pretty sure she will love this as well. And I wasn’t wrong. It was a hit!

Fruity Chantilly Trifle

You know, I was debating what to call this dessert.

Trifle?

Parfait?

What is this dessert?

After consulting with my friend Google, I settled on parfait. Adding pieces of cake (angel food cake would be nice!) into the layer would make it a trifle. But for now, let’s focus on this marvelous parfait, shall we?

This easy parfait comes together in just a few minutes. It takes a lot of beating, but that’s about it. Start with softened cream cheese, beat it with powdered sugar until nice and fluffy, whip the heavy cream and mix everything together to create the fluffiest Chantilly creme. Now, traditional Chantilly creme doesn’t call for cream cheese, but I like how it adds a nice tang to the creme. (As you can recall from my show-stopper Berry Chantilly Cake.)

When it comes to fruits, use whatever fresh fruits you can get your hands on. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mango, kiwi, and/or blackberries. The fruits really do make this dessert. They add freshness, sweetness, texture and color.
