Hi, Kristy in the Rada kitchen, today I’m sharing a recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits. This is out of our Quickies in the Kitchen: 30 Minute Meals cookbook. Actually, you can probably make this in way less than 30 minutes. All you need are strawberries, some sugar, vanilla yogurt, graham crackers, and cream cheese, and some wine glasses, and it makes a beautiful desert in just minutes, so lets get started.
So you need two cups of strawberries that have been sliced. I love using this Rada Granny Paring knife, it gets the stem of that strawberry out, and it’s really easy if you like cutting towards yourself to slice a strawberry or the little bent tip. It makes it easy to slice them on a cutting board, too. You need two cups of fresh strawberries, and here we have 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, and to that we’re going to add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Now to blend this cream cheese and sugar and I’m using this Rada Serverspoon, it works as a spatula, it works as a spoon to stir, you can strain, it has the holes to strain, it’s got like 50 uses.
Alright, so once you’ve got that sugar mixed in, we’re going to add half a cup of vanilla yogurt. And you just want to gently mix that in, and now it’s ready to be dished up. You’ll want to have ready 4 graham crackers that have been crushed, I’m using the regular ones, but you can also use chocolate graham crackers.
So now we’re going to make layers in our wine glasses. In the bottom you’re going to put about a fourth cup of the strawberries and then an eighth of your yogurt mixture, which is more or less just a little dollop. Then you’ll take a little tablespoon or teaspoon and just kind of flatten that out a little bit. Then you’re going to take a fourth of the graham crackers and then the yogurt mixture again, just an eighth of it, and this will actually be your last layer of the yogurt, so you can use it up. And then you’ll add another fourth cup of strawberries which will be your last layer. And there you’ll have a quick, elegant dessert in just a couple minutes. And that’s just one of the recipes in our Quickies in the Kitchen cookbook.
