Main - Berry Cheesecake Parfait

I made these a little while back for a family barbecue. All the deliciousness of cheese cake, but lighter tasting. And no baking required! Here’s my recipe:

INGREDIENTS

16 ounces cream cheese
1 pint plain greek yogurt
2/3 cup icing sugar
zest of a lemon
juice of a lemon
200 grams chocolate wafers, roughly crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted
6 plums, pitted and diced
3/4 cup sugar
1 pint fresh blueberries
1 pint fresh strawberries, diced

DIRECTIONS

With electric mixer on medium speed, whip together the cream cheese, yogurt, icing sugar, lemon zest, and half of the lemon juice. Set aside.

1 - Cheesecake Filling

Combine the crushed chocolate wafers and the melted butter. Press about 1 inch of the wafer mixture into the bottom of 8 parfait glasses. Reserve the remaining wafer mixture.

2 - Melted Butter

3 - Oreo Cookie Crust

In a medium sauce pan, combine the diced plums, sugar, and remaining lemon juice. Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, until thickened and jam-like. Allow filling to cool completely.

4 - Plums

5 - Plum Filling

Now for the layering!

Add some of the cheesecake filling to each glass.

6 - Add Filling

Top with some plum filling, and then berries.

7 - Add Filling + Berries

Then more cheesecake filling, and berries.

8 - More Filling

Sprinkle the remaining wafer mixture over the tops.

Final - Berry Cheesecake Parfait

Yum yum!!
