Lemon Parfaits with Blackberries

Whipped cream, fresh lemons and sweet blackberries.  Doesn’t this parfait remind you of summer? In a short while, gone will be the cold, wet weather and in it’s place at least for us, will be the humid, hot Florida summers. This berry parfait is a good reminder of what we will soon be craving.

Lemon Parfaits with Blackberries
6 servings
Recipe from: Bon Appetit

1 1/2 cups chilled whipping cream
1 1/4 cups purchased lemon curd (from two 11 1/4-ounce jars)
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
3 1/2 cups fresh blackberries (from 3 1/2 pint baskets)
Using an electric mixer, beat cream in large bowl until stiff peaks form. Mix lemon curd, lemon juice and peel in another large bowl to blend. Fold in whipped cream, then 2-1/2 cups blackberries.
Divide lemon mixture among six 8-10 ounce wineglasses or dessert cups. Cover and chill until parfaits are cold, at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day.
Sprinkle remaining 1 cup blackberries atop parfaits and serve immediately.

  1. Blackberries are actually on sale at my favorite grocery store this week (I have no idea why) so looks like we're trying this dessert. Looks positively yummy!


  2. i don't usually like lemon desserts, but this looks completely delicious! the massive blackberries are a great little addition to this creamy, luscious treat. 🙂


  3. Very nice Velva! I'll be honest I've totally been enjoying our unusually cold weather. All too soon I'll be spending all my spare time in that hot humid weather you mentioned. ~ingrid
