Blackberry Yogurt Cheesecake Parfaits

Blackberry Yogurt Cheesecake Parfaits


  • 4 cups lowfat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 gingersnap cookies
  • 3 cups fresh blackberries


  1. The night before (or up to three days ahead), make yogurt cheese: Place two paper cone coffee filters over two large mugs or small bowls. Put 2 cups of yogurt into each filter and place both in the refrigerator overnight. The liquid will drain out, leaving approximately 1 cup of thick yogurt cheese in each. Discard the liquid.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup of the yogurt cheese, honey, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix thoroughly with a whisk. Add the remaining yogurt cheese and mix until combined.
  3. In each of four parfait glasses or large wineglasses, alternate layers of yogurt cheese and berries, starting and ending with yogurt cheese. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 4 hours. Before serving, garnish each parfait with 2 gingersnap cookies.


  • If you're not a fan of blackberries or can't find them at your local grocery store, use raspberries or strawberries instead.
