Are you looking for an easy and quick no bake dessert for the summer?  Well, try these Extreme Patriotic Cheesecake Parfaits.

I used some leftover cheesecake I had in the refrigerator to spoon into the bottom of the jars.  The cheesecake was store bought, but homemade would be fabulous also. I put the spoonful of cheesecake at the bottom to create that anticipation of extreme yumminess. 

Then I followed with a layer of fresh berries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.  So good. 

I like to spoon a little of your favorite berry jelly;  blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, or raspberry over the fruit to add a little more sweetness to the taste.  This can be optional if you prefer, but I recommend keeping with the extreme yumminess.

The next layer is a dollop of your favorite unflavored greek yogurt.  For this recipe and parfaits in general, it is better to use greek yogurt versus regular yogurt. 

Top it off with a few more berries or sweetened granola.  We add red, white, and blue nonpareils sprinkles for a patriotic flair.

The Extreme Patriotic Cheesecake Parfaits hold up real well for five days in the refrigerator.  We enjoy these all summer long.

HOW TO MAKE EXTREME PATRIOTIC CHEESECAKE PARFAITS



  • Layer the parfaits starting with the cheesecake.  Scoop two tablespoons of cheesecake grabbing the graham crust also and place it in the bottom of each of the glass jars.

  • Arrange on top of the cheesecake a layer of berries.  Place a blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, and slice of strawberry evenly across.  (The amount of each one is up to you.  I usually do 1 blackberry, 2 blueberries, 2 raspberries, and a slice or two of the strawberries.)

  • Spoon a tablespoon of jelly over the layer of fruit.  (I spooned 4 each of the blackberry, 4 each of the blueberry, 4 each of the raspberry, and 4 each of the strawberry.

  • Spoon two tablespoons of greek yogurt over the jelly layer.

  • Top off the parfait with more berries and jelly or a generous spoonful of granola.  This is optional.
