Lime Cheesecake Parfaits on Deliciously Sprinkled

It finally feels like spring here in Wisconsin, I can walk outside without a jacket on. Yippee! And as most of you know that spring to me means my favorite flavor ever…lime! It’s been way to long in my book since I posted a lime dessert, the last one was the delicious Lime Cupcakes almost a month ago! So today we are bringing back lime with these simple, no bake Lime Cheesecake Parfaits!

Seriously, these might be the easiest dessert to make that I have on my blog so far. I am all about simple dessert recipes that look “fancy” but don’t require all the work!

The combination of the tart lime and the sweet, creamy richness of cheesecake makes for a light, refreshing dessert. Top with a bit of cool whip and of course, a SPRINKLE of pastel green colored SPRINKLES  and finish it off with a lime wedge to make it look “fancy”. These parfaits would make for a perfect dessert for any party or get together, especially in the spring and summer months!

Having a party!? Make the parfaits the day before, leave them in the fridge overnight and right before serving top with cool whip, sprinkles and lime wedge. Serve chilled.

    Ahh! These are so “springy!” We are supposed to be getting snow here in CO tomorrow. *Frown* … so I think a lime cheesecake parfait is the perfect treat in getting me to ignore the snow!
