I’ll take any excuse to make something delicious and hot pink with rhubarb, especially if that excuse is the celebration of a brand new baby girl who the always awesome Stephanie–aka Girl versus Dough–will be welcoming in just a few short weeks. A whole bunch of bloggers are celebrating Stephanie with a bit of a virtual baby shower–be warned, there are LOTS of delicious links below. If you follow Stephanie’s blog (which you should), then you know she posts beautiful and delicious recipes regularly on her blog–even in the midst of her pregnancy! She’s a champ, really. Plus, if you follow her on Instagram you may have even seen a peak of her adorable bump. I mean, it’s the kind of cute-bump to envy.
So, in celebration of Stephanie and her sweet girl, I made these little parfait cups. This completely no-bake treat combines my favorite springtime fruity-vegetable with a sweet + tangy cream cheese filling and crunchy graham crust layered all pretty-like for a sweet, tart, creamy, crunchy dream of a dessert.
All of that said, Stephanie, we cannot wait for your little one to arrive! She is going to be one lucky little lass with such a beautiful, talented mother to make her treats and love her to pieces! Hurray!!

No-Bake Rhubarb Cheesecake Parfaits
Adapted from How Sweet It Is
This recipe makes extra rhubarb sauce, which is perfect for spooning over plain yogurt or vanilla ice cream.
4 cups chopped rhubarb
2/3 cup raspberries (optional)
2/3-1 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
6 graham crackers, ground into crumbs
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
whipped cream for garnish
In a saucepan combine the rhubarb, raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Heat the mixture over medium heat until the fruit releases it’s juices. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the stove, cool, and store in a jar in the fridge until ready to use.
In a bowl mix together the graham crumbs and coconut oil until well combined. In another bowl, mix together the cream cheese, yogurt, and sweetened condensed milk. Layer graham cracker crust into the bottom of 4-6 glasses or jars, followed by the cream cheese mixture, and finally as much rhubarb sauce as you like. Top with whipped cream before serving.
These are the sweetest parfaits! Of course I’m in love with the hot pink color and I bet the cheesecake/graham/rhubarb combo is so, so good.
It’s a good one, for sure! Hot pink foreva! Thanks, Nicole!

What a lovely easy recipe! Plus you can change to any fruit you want as well, although I think the tartness of the rhubarb is perfect here.
you could definitely switch it up!
Love that you called rhubarb a fruity-vegetable. IT IS. #science #justthefactsmaam

These are stunning and awesome! What a perfect way to showcase rhubarb. Yum!!
I am so smitten with these sweet and sour treats! Just gorgeous.
