Strawberry Parfait

Fresh Florida strawberries are in everywhere. Plump, sweet and so yummy. I decided to make a simple parfait using cream cheese, lemon juice and graham crackers for dessert last week. This is my vegan version from a recipe I found online.  I submitted this recipe to the Virtual Vegan Linky Potluck.
  • 2 cups fresh Florida strawberries, rinsed, hulled and sliced
  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese, whipped (I used Follow Your Heart)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan plain yogurt
  • 4 graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 lemon juiced

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine whipped cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice.

Fold the yogurt into the cream cheese mixture.

In four wide-mouth glasses or dessert cups, evenly layer cream cheese mixture, strawberries and crushed graham crackers.
Serve chilled.


  1. So delicious.
    I JUST finished eating one right now too! :9
    But next time I'll try it with coconut sugar.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    1. Thanks for the comment and for stopping by. The Florida strawberries are awesome right now. I liked this because I'm not into overly sweet things.
      Take care!
