It doesn't matter how skilled — or not — your kids are in the kitchen. This easy, fruity mousse parfait is a great Mother's Day project they can help with.To keep it simple, we use vanilla Greek yogurt as the base for our mousse, and fold whipped cream into it for a light, airy texture. Then we layer the mixture with lightly sweetened fruit for a pretty and tasty contrast. We opted for peaches and blueberries, but any berry or diced fruit would work fine. Strawberries and bananas or raspberries and orange segments would be great combinations.

Not feeling fruity? Try a sprinkling of chopped toasted pecans and a touch of prepared caramel sauce between the layers.Start to finish: 15 minutes

Servings: 6

1 cup fresh or thawed sliced peaches, diced

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Pinch of salt

1 pint heavy cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt

In a small bowl, combine the peaches, blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and salt. Mix gently.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream and powdered sugar until it holds medium peaks. Fold the yogurt into the whipped cream until combined.

Spoon a small amount of the fruit mixture into 6 tall parfait glasses, then top with a spoonful of the yogurt mousse. Repeat layering the fruit and mousse until all of the mixtures are used up. Serve immediately.
