Dessert: Berry Cheesecake Parfait

I whipped up these mini desserts in 5 minutes and thought they’d be the perfect treat for a July 4th celebration! I only did measurements for Adam and I so this would be best for a small crowd. (Easy to double/triple this recipe)



 Berry Cheesecake Parfait (Serves 2)


  • 2 sheets of graham crackers
  • 2 tbsp fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup of Tru Whip (or cool whip)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries


  • Crumble 1 sheet of graham crackers – Divide into each glass as your “crust”
  • Mix cream cheese and sugar until combined
  • Fold in Tru Whip with cream cheese mixture
  • Layer 1/4 of mixture onto crumbled graham cracker “crust”
  • Add sliced strawberries & blueberries
  • Layer in remaining cream cheese mixture
  • Add more sliced strawberries & blueberries
  • Top off with extra Tru Whip (if desired)
  • Place remaining graham cracker strips into top of parfait


Enjoy your 4th of July!
