This beautiful, easy, seasonal dessert is a favorite of the Drago family. You can read more about the Dragos in our latest catalog.

  • 8 Cups mixed fresh berries (if using blackberries, raspberries or blueberries, leave whole; if using strawberries, thinly slice
  • 12 oz. reduced fat or fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 11/2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 2 TB. lemon juice (1/2 of a lemon)
  • 1 TB. finely grated lemon peel
  • 2 TB. finely chopped fresh mint (it does need to be fresh mint for this recipe)

Place all of the berries in a large bowl. Add the VANILLA SUGAR, mix well and refrigerate. In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar on low until smooth. Add the lemon juice, lemon peel and mint. Mix on medium for 30-60 seconds. Scoop into a pastry bag if desired. A zip top bag works well too-you can cut the corner off and use it as a pastry bag. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Line up 8 parfait or stemmed wine glasses. Spoon about 2 TB. of berries into each glass followed by 2 TB. of the lemon cream. Repeat until the glasses are filled to your liking.
