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!
