Cuisine: British
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 200gr granola (I've used homemade granola)
  • 100gr strawberries, finely chopped
  • 100gr blueberries
  • 100gr blackberries
  • 4 strawberries to decorate
  • handful of fresh mint leaves
  • For the cheesecake filling:
  • 350gr fresh ricotta cheese, well drained
  • 150gr light quark cheese, well drained
  • 6 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • ½ vanilla pod, seeds scraped
Instructions
  1. For the cheesecake filling: place the ricotta and quark in a large bowl and mix until smooth and creamy. Add in the lemon zest, sugar and vanilla seeds, and mix through until combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. To assemble the parfait: layer half the granola on the bottom of 4 dessert glasses.
  3. Top with half the cheesecake filling, half of the chopped strawberries, ⅓ of the blueberries and ⅓ of the blackberries.
  4. Fill the glasses with another layer of granola, the remaining chopped strawberries, ⅓ of blueberries, ⅓ of blackberries and top with a final layer of cheesecake filling.
  5. Decorate each glass with fresh whole strawberries, the remaining blueberries and blackberries, mint leaves, sprinkle with a little granola and serve immediately.
Notes
You can also prepare the cheesecake filling in advance and refrigerate until you're ready to assemble your parfaits.
Make sure you assemble the parfait at the very last minute, so that the granola remains nice and crunchy.
