It doesn't matter how skilled your kids are in the kitchen. This easy, fruity mousse parfait is a great Mother's Day project, and they can help.

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.

Not feeling fruity? Try a sprinkling of chopped toasted pecans and a touch of prepared caramel sauce between the layers.

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

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