My husband’s favorite dessert is cheesecake. I haven’t made one in quite a while so when the Stonyfield Yo-Getters team leader asked who wanted to create a recipe featuring Stonyfield Yogurt and an Earthbound Farms Product, I jumped! We love both companies and being that I had just seen some ripe Earthbound Farms strawberries at the grocery store, I knew I could create something yummy! I received coupons for my products in the mail and couldn’t wait to get started.
I wanted to make something similar to a cheesecake but without having to cook! These are the perfect solution for a cool, decadent treat on a hot summer day.
Triple Berry Cheesecake Parfaits Recipe
Makes 4 servings
- 1 Cup of Earthbound Farms Strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1/2 Cup of Blackberries or Blueberries
- 1/2 Cup of Raspberries
- 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
- 5 Tablespoons of Honey
- 8 Ounces of Cream Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of Stonyfield Greek Yogurt (Plain or Honey)
- 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
- 4 Graham Cracker Sheets (or you can make them homemade here)
You really can use any type of berries you wish, or even only one type to make it simple. We love berries and usually have some type fresh in the fridge. You can also use frozen berries as well.
In a bowl, with one type of berries, combine 1 teaspoon of sugar and begin to mash them with a fork.
Combine your cream cheese, greek yogurt, honey and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat on medium-high speed until you have a smooth and creamy texture, about 3-4 minutes.
Stir your berries again to make sure the sugar is dissolved. Crush your graham crackers so that they are rough crumbs.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the strawberries into the bottom of each glass.
Add about 3 teaspoons of the cream cheese/yogurt mixture next.
Next you want to layer your graham cracker crumbs and each glass will get 2 teaspoons.
Repeat by adding your next type of berries, followed by more cream cheese and graham crackers.
Then I added one last teaspoon of cream cheese mixture to the top, added a teaspoon of my berries and then lightly sprinkled with more graham crackers.
You can serve these immediately but I thought they were amazing placed back in the fridge and served after they had chilled about 4 hours.
Although I was provided free product coupons for my recipe, no other compensation was received.
