Blackberries and Cheesecake 15 Minute Parfaits

Happy Monday, Friends! Are you looking for an easy dessert to serve for a Fourth of July celebration? No worries--I've got you covered and I've already taste tested! You can whip up these delicious cheesecake-inspired parfaits in 15 minutes or less

Here's what you'll need:

8 oz cream or Neufchâtel cheese
4 oz Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Fresh blackberries and jam or preserves

I opted to use Neufchâtel cheese and Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream as a healthier, lower-fat alternative without sacrificing taste.

Start by blending the softened cheese, yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla until creamy. Then alternate layers of the cheesecake mixture with the jam, chill, and garnish with fresh blackberries before serving. You'll notice I served mine in vintage parfait glasses, but it would also make a darling mini mason jar dessert. Shout out to Youngest Daughter who sent me her amazing homemade blackberry jam! (Recipe makes 6 mini jars or 3 tall parfaits.) Enjoy!

  1. Sounds great. I recently made strawberries with cheesecake type filling topped with blueberries. You had me at cheesecake!

  2. Oh my goodness Cecilia, this sounds delicious! I love cheesecake, but never have it since I cannot have the crust, this would allow me to have that delightful craving and no crust! Thank you for sharing!

  3. These look delicious Cecilia! I'm adding the ingredients to my shopping list now :)

  4. Quick, easy, healthy and delicious? What more could one wish?

  5. Now you're talking, berries and cheesecake - the best.
