No Bake Black Cherry & Waffle Parfait

5 from 1 review


For the quick sautéed cherries

  • 3 cups black cherries, pitted (save a few whole cherries for garnishing on top)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

For the rest

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 Belgian waffles, broken into pieces


In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine cherries, lemon juice, and sugar. Smoosh cherries slightly with a fork to break them down. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cherries soften and liquid thickens and evaporates almost entirely, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before assembling parfaits.

Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, whip heavy cream and sugar to soft peaks. Spoon layers of whipped cream, Belgian waffle pieces, and quick sautéed cherries into glasses, top with whole cherries, and serve!
