To make this Rainbow Parfait, just gather up a rainbow of fruit. I chose–

red- strawberries

orange- mandarin oranges

yellow- pineapple

green- kiwi

blue- blueberries

purple-purple grapes

You will need some clean glasses to stack the fruit in. I chose these tall glasses, but you could use shorter glasses, mason jars, small glasses, or even plastic glasses.

You will also need pure vanilla extract and some powdered sugar. After putting each kind of fruit in a bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla and a couple of 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to each bowl. Stir each bowl of fruit until the powdered sugar dissolves.

Layer all of the fruit in rainbow order. I started with purple and worked my way up to red. After all the fruit is in, top it with a big “cloud” of whipped cream. Then you can top it off with anything cutesie that you like. I made a washi flag on a paper straw.

The vanilla and powdered sugar in this fruit salad give it a very magical flavor. Kind of like the gold at the end of a rainbow.

I have an obsession with throwing parties, even on a tight budget. Creating and sharing family approved recipes is also huge part of my life. I created Just Another Day in Paradise because I had all of these ideas bouncing around in my head and I needed motivation to do them. What better motivation than to put them out there and share them with others. I am addicted to: Target, BBC Jane Austen Films, baby snuggles, beautiful fabric, spray painting, brownies, shoes, Instagram, Naked Mighty Mango juice, hand-holding, Masterpiece Theater, creating, and good books. On my creative lifestyle blog, I share a bit of everything. I party, cook, sew, laugh, diy, decorate, keep it real, do the momma thing, and celebrate making it through another day. Everyday is just another day in paradise. I love celebrating with you and I look forward to you coming by the blog and to us becoming fast friends.
