Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • For the sauce:
  • 1½ c. fresh strawberries, quartered
  • ½ c. fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • ¼ c. water
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • For the cheesecake filling:
  • 1 (8 oz.) block ⅓ the fat cream cheese, at room temperature for 20 minutes
  • 2 (5.3 oz.) containers Chobani Coconut Blended Greek Yogurt (or plain or vanilla)
  • ¼ c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 4 graham crackers, crumbled
  • ¼ c. unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ¼ c. fresh blueberries
Directions
  1. In a small saucepan set over medium-low heat, add the strawberries, raspberries, sugar, water and lemon juice. Cook until the berries have softened and a sauce forms, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl or container (I like to use a rectangular tupperware container as it allows the sauce to cool more quickly). Allow to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes before placing in the refrigerator to cool completely (about 20 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl add the softened cream cheese and Greek yogurt. Using a hand mixer, beat until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, beat for an additional minute. Place in the refrigerator to chill along with the sauce.
  3. When the sauce is cool, assemble the fools. I used 4 (8 oz) jars, you can use mugs, glasses or bowls too. Start by adding a layer of the graham cracker crumbs, then the filling, then the sauce. Add an additional layer of filling and sauce, then sprinkle with chunks of graham crackers, flakes of coconut and a few blueberries. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Notes
-You can swirl the sauce and filling together with a toothpick or knife for a more marbled look.
