  • Pineapple Chunks – these can be bought in a can, or you can cut up a fresh pineapple
  • Mandarin Oranges – I used store-bought mandarin oranges, but you can substitute fresh seedless orange slices
  • Whipped topping – I used a can of whipped topping which was really easy, but you can make homemade whipped topping which would taste so delicious

Expert Tips

Push the pineapples and oranges up against the sides of the cups so that everyone can see the layers easily

Use canned whipped topping for a really easy treat

Peeps come in so many fun shapes now. You might like adding Sugar Skulls Peeps, Ghost Peeps, Jack-O-Lantern Peeps, or Frankenstein Peeps to the top of the whipped cream

Recipe Variations

Use fresh fruit instead of canned fruit to really make this a healthy snack with very little sugar

What to Serve with Your Fall Fruit Parfait

Fruit parfaits are delicious and served with ice cream or yogurt. They are a great breakfast or snack

They are perfect combined with other fruit options. Everyone loves fruit salads, so add more layers of fruit for more layers of fun.

Yellow Fruit you can use in a parfait

  • mango
  • pineapple
  • banana
  • yellow kiwi

Orange Fruit to use in a parfait

  • blood oranges
  • mandarin oranges
  • papayas
  • apricots
  • pesimmons
  • peaches
  • cantaloupe

Can I make fruit parfaits ahead of time?

Yes and no. Some fruits are more perishable than others. Strawberries tend to leak juice and get mushy pretty quickly. If you are using a fruit that stores well in the refrigerator than it is probably fine to make a day in advance. Do not add whipped cream to the top until serving

What is a Candy Corn Fruit Parfait?

A candy corn fruit parfait is a fruit version of a candy corn. Using the same colors as a candy corn, orange, yellow, and white, fruit is substituted in place of candy and whipped topping is used for the white layer on top

Storing and Reheating

You can layer the fruits ahead of time but hold back the whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate for a day or two. Add whipped toppings just before serving

Storing: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days
