Summery blueberries are sweetened with a floral lavender sugar and alternated with a sweetened vanilla whipped cream in these Blueberry Lavender Parfaits. This no bake dessert is a perfectly fancy way to beat the summer heat!

When I think of lavender oftentimes my brain conjures up images of old ladies and sachets stuffed inside bra padding. Lavender = Old lady smells. In my late teens I worked part time in a home goods store. What I remember most about that time is heavily disliking the scent of lavender anything. I was 19. Old lady scents was something I associated with my grandma – And being so far removed from reaching grandma status at the time, I felt lavender was not the move.

Then shit changed on me, homies. Suddenly I’m thinking, “Lavender s’not so bad”. And that means one thing: I’m approaching sachet stuffed inside my bra status, people. I’m getting older and am one year closer to spending my days knitting and playing bingo wearing my crooked white afro wig, hot pink visor, and looking at you over my half-moon spectacles.

Yup. I said spectacles.

Mmmhmmm…
I actually like lavender. Not all the time. Not yet; but in small doses. Like in these Blueberry Lavender Parfaits.
Flow with me… We’re making a no bake dessert situation.

These Blueberry Lavender Parfaits begin with a whole messa blueberries. 2 pints, to be exact. The blueberries are sweetened with a mix of lavender vanilla sugar and regular old granulated sugar. I buy my lavender vanilla sugar from the Spice House, in case you’re wondering. A little lavender goes a long way, here. Don’t be tempted to add more than a couple of tablespoons; otherwise it will feel like a mouthful of soapy blueberries.

The blueberries are set aside for about 30 minutes and then you make a quick vanilla flavored sweetened whipped cream and then you assemble this jammy. First you add a couple of tablespoons of these lavender sweetened blueberries, followed by a generous piping of sweetened whipped cream. Finally, you top with more blueberries. It’s heaven.

These parfaits are light, airy, and fruity. The lavender scent is intoxicating and the flavor, though not detected in every single bite is ambrosial. It’s like walking through a field in one of those a light flowy summer dresses. These Blueberry Lavender parfaits are extremely easy to put together, perfect for summer, and if I must say so – The pairing here is fancy in the “Older Ladies Who Sit Around And Have Tea” sort of way. I guess I’m about that life right now. Next I’ll be going into Lenscrafters for my half-moon spectacles.
