      8 oz. cream cheese, softened
      1 16-oz. container vanilla yogurt
      2 Tbsp.

      lemon juice
      2 pints fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
      2 pints fresh blueberries, washed
      Whipped topping for garnish
      8 parfait glasses or other clear glasses

      Combine cream cheese, vanilla yogurt and lemon juice and mix well. Place 1/4 cup of cream cheese mixture in the bottom of each glass followed by 1/4 cup strawberries. Repeat with cream cheese mixture and blueberries.

      Top with whipped topping and serve. These desserts are tasty, colorful and right in keeping with the red, white and blue holiday. You could add a layer of sponge cake in each glass if you want to make the dessert a little more hearty.
      The Skinny: Use fat-free yogurt, light cream cheese and low-fat whipped topping.

      For those of you that don’t remember, whipped topping is prepared whipped cream-like topping that comes in a plastic container. It isn’t as good as real whipped cream but is easy and you can get low fat or fat-free varieties.
