I recently got pumped up to make a dairy-free cheesecake,
but then it dawned on me that I’ve never even made a dairy cheesecake.
Maybe I would be better off baby-stepping into this serious endeavor.
Oh, and I don’t even own a spring form pan so uh…
how about parfaits?
That might work!
Easy peasy for mom.
Yet fun layers in see-through glasses that will surely impress the fam.
This I could do.
These actually turned out delicious, required no baking, and were certainly loved by the whole family.
We will be making these again!
And I may never even try to make a dairy-free cheesecake.
CHEESECAKE PARFAIT DAIRY FREE

1 teaspoon dairy-free milk
2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon dairy-free butter
berries and/or dairy-free chocolate chips

PS: Eight years late, you can now buy dairy-free cheesecake! But we still love parfaits at home, too.
