Fun Fruit Parfaits


For an interactive parfait party, leave all the components for this “you won’t believe it’s vegan” dessert in separate bowls. We used Newman’s Own Alphabet Cookies for the cookie layer.

  • 6Servings


  • 1 12.3-oz. pkg. extra-firm silken lite tofu
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. soy cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. orange zest
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 cups dairy- and wheat-free chocolate cookies, chopped
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, stemmed and sliced (about 2 cups)


Blend tofu, cream cheese, sugar, orange zest, ginger and cinnamon in food processor 3 minutes, until smooth.

Peel oranges and remove pith. Cut segments from between membranes over small bowl to catch juice. Cut segments in half, and place in juice.

Sprinkle 2 Tbs. cookie pieces in each of 6 bowls. Top with tofu filling, strawberries and orange segments with juice. Sprinkle tops with remaining cookies, and serve.
