Blackberry Yogurt Cheesecake Parfaits

This Dessert has all the flavour of regular cheesecake, but about half the calories and 90 percent less fat.

Serves 4.

4 cups low-fat plain yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 gingersnap cookies
3 cup fresh blackberries

The night before make yogurt cheese. Place two paper cone coffee filters over two large mugs or small bowls. Put 2 cups of yogurt into each filter and place both in the refrigerator overnight. The liquid will drain out, leaving approx. 1 cup of thick yogurt cheese in each. Discard the liquid. Combine ½ cup of the yogurt cheese, honey and vanilla in a bowl. Mix thoroughly with a whisk. Add the remaining yogurt cheese and mix until combined.

In each of 4 parfait glasses or large wine glasses, alternate layers of yogurt cheese and berries, starting and ending with yogurt cheese. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 4 hours. Before serving, garnish each parfait with 2 gingersnap cookies.
