A No-Cook Easy Dessert
Everyone loves an easy to make and preferably a no cook dessert during the summer months or when time is tight, and my recipe today for Mini Oreo Cheesecake and Strawberry Parfait Pots is a winning recipe! Individual pots are always a lovely way to serve dessert, as everyone feels they have their “own” special pudding and they look good too. Oreo biscuits are well-known in the UK now, and with their classic original range comes two new kids on the block – Limited Edition Oreo Strawberry Cheesecake flavour and Oreo Mint flavour.
Being a lover of strawberries and cream as well as cheesecake, when I was asked to create a simple but delicious dessert recipe by Oreo and Great British Chefs, my attention turned to their new limited edition strawberry cheesecake flavour biscuits; the strawberry cheesecake filling in the new biscuits is reminiscent of a creamy strawberry milkshake, and with that taste playing on my taste buds, I came up with today’s recipe idea for the Mini Oreo Cheesecake and Strawberry Parfait Pots.
This delectable “no-bake” dessert in a jar is easy to make; strawberry cheesecake Oreo biscuits are crumbled into small jars or glass pots, with a light creamy cheesecake type mousse which is topped with whipped cream and a cheeky little Oreo biscuit. These can be covered and taken on picnics, as well as being the perfect outdoor summery dessert for a BBQ party or family get together. This recipe has been made lower in fat and calories by using low-fat cream cheese and a small quantity of icing sugar and jam for a much lighter summer dessert.
The recipe for my latest simple dessert creation is shared below, and don’t forget that a serving of this recipe should be seen as a treat – best enjoyed occasionally as part of a balanced diet. I hope you enjoy these little pots of deliciousness as much as we did here at Chez Lavender and Lovage when I made them, Karen.
