Creamy, yet light, these individual parfaits use the natural sweetness in strawberries to carry this dessert to deliciousness. It’s perfect for experimenting, too: use blueberries and vanilla yogurt or whatever combination strikes your fancy.

Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits

Ingredients

  • 3 cinnamon graham crackers, crushed (1 1/2 ounces) (I used Cadia Organic Cinnamon Grahams)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 4 ounces Neufchatel cheese
  • 1 (5-ounce) container lemon low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) sliced strawberries

Directions

Place the graham crackers in a zip-top bag, seal bag and mash with a rolling pin until the crackers are reduced to fine crumbs. Mix the crumbs with the lemon zest and divide evenly between 4 small dessert glasses or jars. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat the cheese, yogurt, honey and vanilla with a hand-held mixer until smooth. Spoon mixture into the glasses. Top with the strawberries and chill for 30 minutes before serving.
