berry cheesecake parfaits
1 pkg. (8oz) philadelphia Neufchatel Cream Cheese
1 1/2 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz) jello Cheesecake or Vanilla flavor Instant Pudding
we use the cheesecake! yum yum!
1 pkg Voortman shortbread swirl cookies crumbled
( they are sugar free I find them with the sugar free food products)
Approx. 3 cups fresh fruit/ strawberries ,blueberries and bananas
8 oz light cool whip divided
Beat cream cheese with mixer until soft and creamy. Gradually beat in milk.
Add dry pudding mix; mix well until it starts to thicken
Fold in with a spoon 1/2 of the Cool Whip
Place half of cream cheese mixture in 6 parfait cups
(place a good heaping tablespoon in each cup)
half of assorted fruits sliced if needed
The second half of the cream cheese mixture
Dollop of remaining cool whip a
top with a sprinkle of crumbs
You may not need the whole package of cookies, I just save them in a jar for another time.
Half of my family likes to use Graham cracker crumbs.
I make a graham cracker crust , bake it, crumble it and then store it in a jar.
Once you have made this your family will be asking for it again :)
recipe is from the box of Philadelphia cream cheese
the original recipe said serves 8 you could maybe stretch it by adding more fruit but we think the pudding is divine and we like more pudding in our cup :) so we go with 6 per recipe
What I love about this recipe is it is so easy to make sugar free. We have some friends who are diabetic.
Just use pudding and cool whip marked sugar free.
If you are serving it for a dinner party let your guests help you assemble when they arrive.
It is a nice ice breaker and we found out that not everyone likes the same fruit we do.
This dessert is.....LOVED BY YOUNG AND OLD
and just reminds me of Addilyn Grace...
it's little , it's cute, it has just the right sweetness
and you can't get enough of it!
It is a quiet day here today
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
America.......God Bless Thee
until next time
