No Bake Cheesecake Parfait Cups with Blueberry & Strawberry Jam

No Bake Cheesecake Parfait with Blueberry & Strawberry Jam
My friend and I made a few dozens of these delicious no bake cheesecake parfait cups for a church get together. Before doing so, we experimented with a recipe that's relatively simple and could easily be scaled up to 30 or so servings. We began with 4 serving and proceeded to multiply the ingredients as needed.

Is no bake parfait cheesecake better?

Keep in mind that no bake cheesecakes are eggless. Hence, if you're averse to eggs, but like creamy flavor of cheesecakes, then you should learn to make no bake cheesecake fillings.

For parfaits, no bake cheesecake filling is better and appropriate since the filling is spooned into a cup. The texture should be more mousse-like at first and then chilled to set.

No Bake Cheesecake Parfait with Blueberry & Strawberry Jam

Ingredients -- Serves 4:
  • 1/2 cup Graham Cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp melted butter
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 bottle strawberry jam (Smuckers)

Directions: How to make no bake cheesecake parfait

1. Crush crackers in a medium mixing bowl. Make it as fine as possible. You can also buy crushed crackers if that's what you want.

2. Add melted butter and mix until well combined. The texture should be something like wet sand, if you have fine crumbs.

3. In a separate mixing bowl, add cream cheese. Using an electric handmixer, beat the cream cheese until it's nice and fluffy.

4. Add condensed milk slowly while continuing to beat. Continue until you get a creamy, smooth texture.

5. Now you're ready to put it all together. Spoon a layer of each crushed crackers, cream cheese, strawberry jam and top it off with blueberry.

6. We used a regular 9 oz plastic cup since that's what we planned to use for the church get together. But you can always use regular coffee cup for personal snacks.

Now, here's the source video. Remember, we only used it for the crust and cheesecake. I'll probably use it to make a strawberry cheesecake parfait some other time.
