Looking for an easy, delicious, no-bake dessert recipe that will please Weight Watchers and non-Weight Watchers alike? Look no further than these light and delicious no-bake strawberry cheesecake parfaits, which were a big hit when I took them to dinner with friends recently.
In bowl, sprinkle the stemmed and sliced strawberries with sugar. Gently toss to combine and set aside while you make the "cheesecake cream."
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, yogurt, and confectioners sugar until smooth. Gently stir in ½ cup whipped topping.
To assemble parfaits, divide the ingredients among 8 dishes or glasses. Layer graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese filling, and strawberries.
Repeat layers and end with a dollop of whipped topping.
lower calories/points - fat free cream cheese instead of reduced fat, zero calorie sweetener in place of sugar, fewer/no graham cracker crumbs.
no strawberries - use any berry or combination you prefer.
lemon - I love to add a bit of lemon juice to both strawberries and cheesecake. I added about 1 teaspoon to each the strawberries and cream cheese mixture. This is totally optional.
almond - the original recipe suggested 1 teaspoon almond extract in the cream cheese mixture.
no graham cracker crumbs - substitute your favorite cookie crumbs. Shortbread, biscotti, animal crackers, oreos, etc.
no plain Greek yogurt - any flavor yogurt you prefer would work. Or skip it and use more whipped topping.
