No-Bake Cheesecake Berry Parfaits

This no-bake dessert parfait has all the flavor of a rich, creamy cheesecake without any of the work.

Made with reduced-fat cream cheese, Greek yogurt, crushed vanilla wafers and a topping of fresh berries, this summer treat is not only a cinch to make, it's quite a bit lighter than a slice of traditional cheesecake.

We used a combination of fresh blueberries and raspberries for our topping but go for your own personal favorites – strawberries, cherries and peaches are all delicious choices.
