Patriotic Cheesecake Parfaits

This summer I whipped up a quick dessert when I was craving something sweet with cream cheese in it. I love fruit cheesecake, and I wanted to make something I could pair with my very ripe strawberries, so I created these Patriotic Cheesecake Parfaits.

A dessert like this is like summer in a spoon for me, so good.

I made this easy whipped cheesecake filling that was outrageously good with some summer fresh berries.

I love that I can add gobs and gobs of fruit to it, and it is rich and creamy and so satisfying!


Look at these, do they not look delectable?

There is a lot of sweet berries nestled into that cheesecake. Let’s make some!


1 8z. package of cream cheese ( can be light)

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup cream (or half and half, or milk- whatever you have)

1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

whipped cream

2 cups berries- mix and match your favorites- I used strawberry and blueberry


In a mixer bowl, add your cream cheese and sugar, cream together until no lumps remain. Add vanilla, mix and then add cream. Mix until the mixture resembles a creamy pudding.

In 2 parfait glasses, add graham cracker crumbs equally at the bottom of the glass. Spoon one large spoonful into the bottom of the glass of the cream cheese mixture. Add 1/2 cup of berries, then top with another large spoonful of the cream cheese mixture. Top again with 1/2 cup of berries and then add a dollop of whipped cream. Add a couple berries to the cream for decoration.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

These are large and can easily feed two people each.  Serves 4.






What a great dessert to enjoy the last summer fruits while they are here.
