Have I ever told you about my sweet tooth? I love sweets and desserts so much that we have a shopping “rule” not to buy desserts of any kind at the store anymore.

Luckily, this doesn’t preclude me from making desserts at home!

And if I’m out with the girls for dinner… well, that’s the perfect excuse to save a little dessert room, don’t you think?

While cakes, cookies and cheesecake are my favorites, I can’t bare to turn the oven on when warm weather arrives. No-bake desserts are the answer to that problem and I love making them.

This red white and blue cheesecake parfait recipe fits into a couple of categories. Besides it being no-bake, it is also very easy to make. So easy in fact that I don’t give exact measurements for the fruit and cookie parts.

You can put as little or as much as you want – you could even leave one out if you wanted to (who would want to though!)

It is also very patriotic with red and blue fruit and white no-bake cheesecake filling.

If you’re looking for a Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day dessert that is perfect for parties and barbecues, this is it.

To make it even more party-friendly, I like to use either 4 or 8 ounce mason jars.  You can make this a few days in advance and store the jars in the refrigerator until your party starts.

Serve these parfaits, sealed, on ice to stay cold and keep a glass of spoons nearby. Be prepared – these are a party favorite; double the batch for anyone that may want seconds (like me!)
