Make these easy no bake cheesecake parfaits with fresh summer fruit for a deliciously simple fresh dessert without heating up the kitchen.
When Allison from Triple Chocolate Kitchen suggested a bloggers' cheesecake party for #NationalCheesecakeDay I had every intention of baking one. Then the summer heat finally hit us. No bake cheesecake parfaits it became.
And since stone fruits are in season right now I knew I had to use them.
For the "crust" I went with these strawberry wafers because they don't contain any artificial colors... and they were on sale at the time 😉
