Heavenly Assumption Parfaits

The Solemnity of the Assumption, which is a Holy Day of Obligation, is coming up on August 15th!  These Assumption Parfaits, adapted from Yummy Finds, would make a simple and fun treat to celebrate the feast! 

To make these all you need is a box of Berry Blue Jello, Cool Whip, and Glasses. 

Prepare the Berry Blue Jello according to the directions on the package. 

 Layer spoonfuls of Berry Blue Jello and Cool Whip in narrow glasses to create the sky and clouds!

Be sure to alternate where you place the cool whip “clouds” so that you get a nice staggered effect.


"We pronounce, declare and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory." ~ Pope Pius XII

    And I agree with the first comment, these are beautiful photos!

  5. Berry Blue Jello, has BlueNr1 artificial coloring, which beside being carcinogenic is also a product made from mineral oil and therefore is in fact an ingredient which finds its origins 65,000,000 years ago.
