Fabulous Sugar Free Natural Cream Cheese and Fruit Parfait!

Updated on May 3, 2015

Free of Processed White Sugar

This simple dessert is rich and creamy and totally free of processed sugars. It is not the sweet most people are used to having, but once you eliminate processed sugars from your diet, it will become a wonderful light and totally satisfying experience.

I am not diabetic, but I do have family members who are. Desserts like this one have become a family tradition and when I try to eat the normal sweets that I ate before, the sweetness is overwhelming. I prefer the lighter touch, and I hope you will too!

Parfait

The word 'parfait' dates back to the late 1800's and usually referred to a frozen dessert. In North America, the definition of 'parfait' expanded to include yogurts, creams, cheeses, nuts and fruits.

This recipe is easy to make and it uses no sugar, only natural sweetening from fruits and a rich creamy taste from cream cheese and whipping cream.

Blackberries

I chose blackberries for their natural sweet flavor. Smuckers Simply Fruit Blackberry adds a little extra with flavors and sweetness from pineapple, apple, and pear juices.

Carrot juice is also an awesome addition to sweeten any dessert.
