{Recipe} Raspberry & Cream Cheese Parfait

I love fresh fruit (I’m sure you’ve already figured that out), but I also have a major sweet tooth. So when I get the chance to mix the two, I’m in heaven.

I made these Raspberry and Nutella Pastry Puffs a while back, and had some extra of the filling. I could not let it go to waste, so I had to come up with another yummy treat.

Raspberry Parfait

It’s super easy, and great for a hot summer day.


  • Cream Cheese
  • Cool Whip
  • Vanilla extract
  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Pureed Raspberries

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Cool Whip
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Start by making your cream cheese filling, then set aside

Layer one layer of vanilla yogurt, then a thin layer of raspberry puree. Repeat the layers until you get to the top. Then place a dollop of your cream cheese filling and top it with a raspberry, or two.

After making this for dessert, I then had it for a midnight snack, and again after lunch the next day. The little dollop of filling is just enough to counter the tart you can get from the other two layers!
