Strawberry Parfaits

These creamy and smooth strawberry parfaits taste as good as they look. Top with whipped cream and sliced almonds for a real treat.

Cooking Light MAY 2001

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced strawberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup amaretti cookie crumbs (about 8 cookies)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-calorie whipped cream
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted

Preparation

Place 2 cups of strawberry slices and granulated sugar in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Set strawberry puree aside.

Combine ricotta and next 4 ingredients (ricotta through vanilla) in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk. Spoon 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs into each of 4 parfait glasses. Top each portion with 2 tablespoons strawberry puree, 1/4 cup strawberry slices, and 3 tablespoons ricotta mixture; repeat the layers. Drizzle the remaining strawberry puree over each serving. Chill for 2 hours. Top each parfait with 2 tablespoons whipped topping and 1 1/2 teaspoons almonds.
