The Cheesecake Flavor
To create the ‘cheesecake flavor’, I came up with a combination of cream cheese filling and a simple cookie. I used Stella D’oro cookies I picked up at Safeway. You can use any type of variety that you can get your hands on. Vanilla Oreo cookies, firm lady fingers and chocolate pirouette cookies will all work well, too! And my favorite part of this cheesecake parfait is of course the fluffy cheesecake filling. The fluffy cream filling combined with the cookie and berries tastes just like cheesecake!
This recipe for cheesecake parfaits is not only easy, it’s also versatile! This recipe will work well with any type of fruit or berry flavored Jello. For best results, I recommend using only fresh fruit, not frozen. For my video recipe, I combined blueberry jello with blueberries and raspberries. You can even add a bit of lemon zest for more flavor! Here are some more flavor combinations you can try:
- Peaches & Cream: use peach-flavored jello with fresh diced peaches and garnish with fresh mint leaves. If desired, add a few tablespoons of peach schnapps for an adult-version of this dessert!
- Strawberries & Cream: use strawberry-flavored jello with fresh chopped strawberries. Add smashed strawberries into the cheesecake filling for more strawberry flavor and pour strawberry syrup on top.
- Tropical Parfait: use a fruit flavored jello for the base with chopped mango pieces. Top the cream cheese filling off with diced pineapple, kiwi and papaya.
