The fourth is coming and I’m all about effortless festive eats. I personally love this holiday as there are so many ways to make a vibrant spread featuring red, white, and blue foods. One of my favorite desserts is actually, a trifle! Whether it’s whip cream, cake, or pudding or C, all of the above, I just find them aesthetically fun.
Perhaps it’s combining multiple textures or the ability to create aesthetic appeal with the dish itself, I always crave one around this time. That being said, with the 4th coming this Saturday, I knew it was a must!
What’s great about this recipe, is simply everything because it’s all so simple to throw together. It features my quick and easy vegan vanilla cake, fresh strawberry rhubarb compote, easy ready made whip cream (or you can make your own coconut whip), it can easily be made in bulk, you can make mini size portions for entertaining or one large one, it’s festive, the cake is buttery soft, has notes of tart rhubarb, you can switch up the fruit if desired, it’s light and refreshing, and it’s honestly hands down one of my favorite recipes!
If you’re looking for quick and easy 4th of July desserts or simply love effortless vegan desserts, you have to try the new vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Parfaits!
Place the strawberries into a large bowl and sprinkle with half of the lemon juice. Lightly toss.
Combine the strawberries, sliced rhubarb, sugar, vanilla in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Combine the remaining lemon juice with corn starch in a shallow dish. Combine, removing any remaining clumps. Bring to a simmer and cook just until the berries begin to break down and give up their juices, about 3 minutes. Take the mixture off the heat and let cool; the mixture should thicken up as is cools.
