Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait Recipe
A Delicious Spring Dessert Recipe
Y’all know I LOVE my strawberry recipes…there’s just something so delicious about using fresh strawberries in recipes. They’re like the perfect mixture of sweet and tart…I find that frozen strawberries are too sweet for most recipes so when strawberries are in season I go nuts cooking with them!
And I’ve found that mixing strawberries with other fruit just brings out the sweet and tart flavor even more. Like mixing with bananas in my Strawberry Banana Bread Recipe…mmmm….just spread a little butter on top while it’s still hot and you’ve got a loaf of bread that will be gone in no time! Or, mix with chocolate to create my Homemade Chocolate Pudding Strawberry Smores Parfait for a dish the kids will be begging for! Or, go a bit healthier with my Strawberry Vinaigarette Salad Dressing Recipe for a delicious and nutritious lunch!
In fact, create the strawberry salad dressing for lunch and follow it up with this Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait Recipe as a nice little treat for eating that salad!
This strawberry cheesecake parfait recipe is a simple dessert that I can throw together in no time and the whole family loves! Instead of making these in individual dessert cups, make this strawberry cheesecake parfait recipe in a large casserole dish and take it to family gatherings, potlucks, or any group event.
