Ingredients
  

Crust Ingredients:

  • ¼ c. raw almonds
  • ¼ c. raw pecans
  • 3 pitted dates roughly chopped
  • ¼ t. ground cinnamon plus more for garnish

Cheesecake Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 c. full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 T. honey preferably local (or maple syrup)
  • 1 t. real vanilla extract
  • 1 c. strawberries chopped
  • 1 c. raspberries
  • ½ c. blueberries

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine almonds, pecans, dates, and cinnamon. Pulse until the mixture starts to form a ball and the nuts are nicely broken down. Divide the nut crust between 4 individual serving dishes or jars and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth. Set aside.
  • Tip: If cream cheese isn’t fully softened, beat it first before adding the other ingredients.
  • Divide half of the cheesecake mixture between the 4 serving dishes or jars and divide half of the berries among the individual dishes. Repeat this process with remaining cheesecake mixture and fresh berries.
  • Place the parfaits in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to chill. To serve, garnish with ground cinnamon or an extra drizzle of honey, if desired. Enjoy!
