Cute parfaits are really popular among girls in Japan and I look forward to them every summer when I visit. I wanted to make one that was inspired by my love of surfing and the ocean. This parfait has everything that a Japanese parfait has like whipped cream, ice cream, fruit, and cute decorations, but it also has an extra special treat. There is blue hawaii flavored jello with a sandy candy bottom and a tropical fish.

What I love about this parfait are the different flavors. The cold ice cream, chewy cookies, and the jello mixed with candy. This may look complicated, but it is actually easy to put together and you can customize it yourself with different flavors of ice cream and jello, and different decorations.

This recipe makes 3 parfaits.

Step 1: Ingredients


1/2 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup all-purpose flour


1 cup apple juice
3 tablespoons blue hawaii syrup (for shaved ice)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 pack of gelatin
2 tablespoons sugar

For the Gelatin

maraschino cherries
Japanese ramune and konpeito candies (you can find them at any Japanese market or you can use any little candy)
3 parfait or wine glasses


Vanilla ice cream
honeydew melon
fake flowers
parasol picks
silver sprinkles
1 8 oz carton whipping cream
chocolate roll cookies
2 tablespoons sugar

This is insane! I've never heard of this. I love it.
That looks like a really fun parfait! I can see why you look forward to making it :)
