Easy Cheesecake Berry Parfaits

These parfaits are ready to eat in under five minutes, and can be easily made low-fat. Enjoy! My rating: 4 out of 5.

Cheesecake Berry Parfaits

8oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups milk
1 3.4 oz pkg vanilla pudding mix
1 cup Cool Whip
Nilla Wafers or graham crackers
seasonal berries

Place the cream cheese in a large bowl and microwave for 20 seconds to soften.

Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add milk gradually, while beating. Add dry pudding mix and continue beating for 2 minutes. Fold in Cool Whip.

Break Nilla wafers or graham crackers into small pieces.

In a small glass or bowl, layer cookie crumbs, pudding mixture, and then berries. Repeat layers if space allows.

Top with additional Cool Whip.
