Grab the ingredients you'll need to make your parfaits.
Start by making the decadently creamy white chocolate yogurt mousse in lemon and lime flavors.
The mousse will look very pale at this point, so mix some yellow food coloring into the lemon mousse and some green and yellow coloring into the bowl of lime mousse.
Spoon the lemon and lime mousse along with the whipped cream into disposable pastry bags. This makes assembling the parfaits super fast and neat.
To assemble the parfaits start by spooning in some cookie crumbs. Pipe a layer of whipped cream over top then add a layer of lime and lemon mousse. Repeat creating another cookie crumb layer topped with whipped cream and the lemon and lime mousse.
Pipe on a swirl of whipped cream. To make the swirl look really pretty, you can add a star pastry tip to a clean pastry bag, fill it with whipped cream, and pipe on a swirl.
Your parfaits are ready to serve.
