These Jello Cool Whip parfaits make a light and refreshing dessert that's perfect for warm weather afternoons or evenings. And the recipe is so simple, the kids can make it with you. I like the combination of blueberries and lemon Jello and lemon yogurt, but feel free to vary the flavors and fruit to suit your taste preferences. Strawberry Jello, strawberry yogurt and fresh sliced strawberries would also be nice in this recipe.

If you like, you can substitute crushed graham crackers for the crushed gingersnaps, too.
