They're AMAZINGLY cute and delicious to boot! (Weeeee... a rhyme!)
2 tbsp. (half a 4-serving box) Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
1/2 cup fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 sheet (4 crackers) low-fat graham crackers, lightly crushed
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip
Combine pudding mix, Splenda, vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup cold water in a bowl. Stir vigorously until smooth and slightly thickened. Fold in Cool Whip, and then fold in cream cheese. Stir thoroughly, until completely mixed and smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Evenly distribute raspberries between 2 parfait glasses (or any mid-sized glasses). Evenly distribute half of the chilled pudding mixture between the glasses, about 1/4 cup per glass.
Repeat layering with strawberries and remaining half of the pudding mixture.
Evenly distribute crushed graham crackers between the glasses and, if you like, top each parfait with a squirt of Reddi-wip.

HG Heads-Up: It's important that the cream cheese is at room temperature. If needed, soften it in the microwave for just a few seconds.
HG FYI: The recipe method of calculating PointsPlus® values counts the carbs, protein, etc., from fruit -- even though fruit has a value of 0*. If calculated without the fruit, this recipe has a PointsPlus® value of 4* per serving.
