oz (half of 8-oz package) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
cup powdered sugar
container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt
cup cold brewed espresso or strong coffee
tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur, cold brewed espresso or strong coffee
package (3 oz) soft ladyfingers, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
oz semisweet baking chocolate, grated (1/4 cup)
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in ricotta cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until creamy. Beat in yogurt until well blended. In small bowl, mix espresso and liqueur.
In 8 small parfait glasses or clear drinking glasses, layer half of the ladyfingers, half of the espresso mixture and half of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle each with about 3/4 teaspoon grated chocolate. Repeat layers.
Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors but no longer than 4 hours. Store covered in refrigerator.
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
Instead of the ladyfingers, you can use 4 cups angel food cake cubes.
Don't want to grate chocolate? A sprinkle of baking cocoa in place of the chocolate on each layer is a nice substitute.
To reduce calories more, use Yoplait® Light Fat Free very vanilla yogurt instead of the Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt.
