About the Recipe

Take all the great, rich flavor of cheesecake, layer it with berries, then add a little crunch and a touch of chocolate, and you have what may just be the perfect Memorial Day dessert.


8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

One 5.3-ounce container vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup light sour cream

1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

6 chocolate wafer cookies, crumbled

1/2 cup crisp rice cereal

1/4 cups Grape-Nuts brand cereal

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries 

1 cup blueberries


Beat the cream cheese, yogurt and sour cream with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and beat again until smooth.

  1. Combine the crumbled cookies and cereals together in a small bowl.

  2. Build the parfaits: Place a small spoonful of the cheesecake mixture in the bottom of each of 4* parfait glasses or wine goblets. Add a layer of fruit, followed by a second layer of the cheesecake mixture; top with a layer of the crumbs. Repeat. Arrange a final layer of berries on top, place a decorative dollop of the last of the cheesecake mixture and sprinkle with the crumbs.

*use a smaller glass and increase to six servings

This is a great make-ahead dessert.
