4th of July Dessert Recipe – No-Bake Mini Cheesecake Parfaits

0 Comments 29 June 2016

The 4th of July is quickly approaching and if you are anything like my family, you’re trying to find someplace cool to beat the heat – so likely a pool party and BBQ! We don’t have a pool in our backyard so we find ourselves at the mercy of our wonderful friends who always come through with an invite to celebrate with them.  Naturally I never show up empty-handed so I always offer to bring a few things, including dessert.  This year I’m bringing these delicious no-bake mini-cheesecake parfaits as our 4th of July dessert – they are quick to assemble and will make you look like a hero!

I ran by Walmart to pick up a few things to make these adorable 4th of July desserts.  Luckily I already had the graham crackers, butter, and lemon juice, so I only needed to fill in the blanks.  I was in and out of the store in less than 10 minutes, and I spent less than $12 dollars.  That’s a steal, right?!

Here’s what you need to make these yummy treats:

  • Graham crackers, crushed (I put these in a little ziplock bag and let my son have at ’em)
  • 3 tbsp of butter, melted
  • 2 8 oz packages of cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp of freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • freshly washed strawberries, quartered
  • freshly washed blueberries
  • whipped cream

The process of making these little no-bake cheesecake parfaits is super easy.

  1. Add melted butter to crushed graham crackers and mix until well-combined.
  2. Using a hand mixer, combine 2 packs of cream cheese, 1 can of condensed milk, and lemon juice until well blended.
  3. Add the graham cracker mixture to the bottom of a glass or jar.
  4. Now layer: Cheesecake mixture, fruit, cheesecake mixture, graham crackers, fruit and so on.

That’s it!  This makes a super easy 4th of July dessert that the entire crowd will love!

Aren’t they adorable?

If you are looking for a similar idea but don’t want to make individual parfaits, try this family-sized 4th of July dessert – I call it Strawberry and Stars Shortcake – that I made a few years back.

Thanks so much to Walmart for sponsoring this post – and I hope that you all have a wonderful, relaxing, and safe 4th of July weekend.
