Almond-Blueberry Gelatin Parfaits

Almond-Blueberry Gelatin Parfaits

The flavors and colors of the almond and blueberry gelatins play off each other beautifully in this dessert. Blueberries rank very high in their ability to fight free oxygen radicals that damage cells. They also contain vitamin C and antibacterial elements called anthocyanosides, which are great for maintaining vein health. Almond milk is an excellent source of antioxidants.
