Ingredients for Peach Cheesecake Parfait

GOOD STUFF

One look at the ingredients says it all – this dessert is made with things you probably already have on hand. The two ingredients that might send you off to a quick trip to the store are the yoghurt and ricotta cheese – they help build the creamy cheesecake-flavour profile.

Sliced peaches

FRESH FRUIT

As mentioned above, this dessert welcomes, and in fact encourages, substitutions. One rule we abide by: use the best, and if possible, locally grown, fruit at the height of the season. We tested the recipe using strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and even apricots, peaches, plums and bananas (what?). They all worked perfectly.

Filling whipped with ricotta and yoghurt

CHEESECAKE

The cheesecake component comes from mimicking both a traditional crust and cheesecake filling. We tossed graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and sugar to create a crumble, and brightened the flavours with yoghurt, ricotta, sugar and lemon zest as a filling. 

Cherry Cheesecake Parfait

CLASSIC PARFAIT

Crafting the look of a classic parfait couldn’t be easier. Sprinkle some crumbs into the glass, add a few pieces of fruit, followed by a dollop or two of the yogurt-cheese cream mix. Repeat little by little until the glass is filled.

Blueberry syrup

Bonus! If making your parfaits using blueberries, add a little drizzle of our BLUEBERRY SYRUP. Yum!

Peach Cheesecake Parfait

One last thing – don’t miss our call for gingersnap cookies. Tuck one right at the top of the glass and ta da! An instantly glorious dessert, ready to be enjoyed.
