Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Parfait
Lemon Custard Ingredients
2½ Cups Milk
½ Cup Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Egg Yolks, Slightly Beaten
1 Lemon (for Zest)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Blueberry Sauce Ingredients
1½ Cups Sugar
1 Cup Frozen Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Four to six servings.
Lemon Custard Directions
  1. Mix all ingredients together in mixer until cornstarch is completely dissolved.
  2. Pour mixture into sauce pan and cook on low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and continue cooking, stirring constantly, for an  additional 6 minutes (or for an additional minute after pudding starts to boil).
  4. Place custard in bowl. To prevent a surface film from forming on top of the custard, place plastic wrap directly on surface of custard.
  5. Cool completely.
Blueberry Sauce Directions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.
  2. Over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, one minute (sauce will become very thick). Remove from heat.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to assemble parfaits.
Directions: Assembling the Parfaits
  1. You can either spoon the custard into your chosen parfait glasses, or pipe it into the glasses using a pastry bag. A simple pastry bag is formed by placing the custard into a large zip lock bag and snipping off the corner of the bag through which custard will be piped.
  2. Add part of the lemon custard, followed by part of the blueberry sauce (spoon into place), to your glasses.
  3. Add another layer of the lemon custard followed by blueberry sauce. Continue as needed forming layers of color and flavor as you go.
  4. Cool in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Baker’s Tip

The idea of the parfait is to be creative. It is best to use a glass which is clear so that the parfait layers can be admired.

Serve soon after assembly for best results (within four hours).
