Diabetes-Friendly Red, White and Blue Recipes for July 4th

The Fourth of July: A time for fun, fireworks, family, friends and FOOD!
Everyone loves an American themed dessert on July 4th. Don't pass on your favorite red, white and blue treat, make it diabetes-friendly instead.

Here's an Independence Day twist on a simple diabetes-friendly recipe:
2. Scoop the prepared mousse into a glass parfait cup, filling it 1/4 of the way.
3. Top with whipped cream until the glass is half full.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the parfait glass is full. You should have four red and white alternating stripes (see image above).
5. Finish with a sprinkle of blueberries on top for a red, white and blue "Americana Parfait."
