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.
