In a couple of months, it is going to start getting hot. Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you still can’t bake or make good things. In fact, I am the queen of making delicious no-bake desserts that you can enjoy throughout the summer without turning your oven on like the Lemon Shortbread Icebox Cake, Banana Split Cake, and Strawberry Granola Yogurt pie to name a few. These recipes are quick and easy to put together leaving the hardest thing to do is to wait.
These No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Parfaits are the perfect dessert option to make when entertaining large crowds. Not only that, this is a fool-proof dessert for those who don’t bake or have no confidence in baking. These parfaits are made of simple layers of cheesecake mixture, lemon curd, and crushed shortbread cookies, but you can use crushed graham crackers if you want.
Making these Lemon Cheesecake Parfaits
As previously mentioned, these parfaits are quick and easy. You start off by making a cheesecake mixture that consists of cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. That’s it! I also added some lemon zest and a touch of vanilla extract to add some flavor to the mixture. Then, I layered with some crushed shortbread cookies and store-bought lemon curd. But, if you are feeling a bit adventurous and would like to make your own, then I definitely recommend this recipe.
You can layer these in cute little glasses or even plastic cups if you are trying to keep it rustic. Oh, one last layer, top the parfaits off the whipped cream. Are you feeling the love?! Well, I wish had more to say about these parfaits, but this no-bake dessert is so straightforward that if I keep typing I’m just prolonging the time you have to make these parfaits.
