Easy Lemon Parfait

Easy-Lemon-Parfait Need a yummy and easy dessert?

How about my Easy Lemon Parfaits?

The lemon flavor is great for spring, but most any flavor pudding would be great, so use what you have on hand.

This recipe uses my Easiest Homemade Whipped Cream, because I LOVE real whipped cream, but if you are a cool whip kind of gal or guy, that would work too (and make this even faster).

If you are gluten free, simply use GF cake or angel food for a no-wheat treat.

Let me know if you make these!
