Take all the great, rich flavor of cheesecake, layer it with summer's best berries then add a little crunch and a touch of chocolate, and you have what may just be the perfect summer dessert. Best of all, a great big, celebratory serving of this parfait clocks in at less than 400 calories. (This recipe can also be made to serve six instead of four. Just use smaller glasses and divvy the recipe up into six parfaits with less than 250 calories each. We pinky-swear it won't feel skimpy!)

Ingredients

Directions

Beat the Neufchatel, yogurt and sour cream with an electric hand mixer until smooth. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and beat again until smooth.

Combine the crumbled cookies and cereals together in a small bowl.

Build the parfaits: Place a small spoonful of the cheesecake mixture in the bottom of each of 4 parfait glasses or wine goblets. Add a layer of fruit, followed by a second layer of the cheesecake mixture; top with a layer of the crumbs. Repeat. Arrange a final layer of berries on top, place a decorative dollop of the last of the cheesecake mixture and sprinkle with the crumbs.
