Peach & Raspberry Parfaits

This refreshing dessert is perfect for a warm summer night!  It is a delicious way to get 25% of your daily recommended 2 cups of fruit, and is full of other vitamins and minerals. Peaches and raspberries together provide vitamin A, several B vitamins, vitamin C, and potassium. Add variety by using different fruit combinations, such as strawberries and kiwi. The cream cheese mixture can also be used as a light dip for your favorite fruits.

Serves: 1 parfait


½ c (4 oz) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese

¼ c sugar, divided

1 c vanilla fat-free yogurt

2 c sliced peeled peaches (6-7 peaches)*

1 c raspberries


In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and 3 T sugar until smooth. Beat in yogurt until blended.


Combine remaining 1 T sugar with peaches and raspberries in a large bowl, tossing to coat. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes.


To build parfaits, spoon 2 T of cream cheese mixture into each of 6 glasses. Top each with ¼ c fruit mixture. Repeat layers with remaining cheese mixture and fruit.  Chill until ready to serve.


*Quick Tip: To make peeling easier, place peaches in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes. Remove from water, and use a small knife to start removing the skin. The skin will peel off nicely from the flesh.
