Cheesecake has always been one of my favorite desserts. And, if you’re a fan of Shrek, then you know that everybody loves a parfait. That’s why I absolutely love this recipe for strawberry cheesecake in a jar. And, if you don’t want strawberry flavored cheesecake? No big deal. Swap it out for the fruit (or chocolate!) of your choice.
And did I mention that this recipe is delicious? A friend of mine who does weight watchers says this recipe is only 1 point. Now, keep in mind that I don’t do weight watchers. But it’s still really cool. Because I know a lot of you do – and I want to make sure you can see exactly what you’re getting into here – the most delicious, guilt-free cheesecake parfait ever.
The Best Recipe for Cheesecake in a Jar (without the Guilt!)
Okay, so usually “healthy” and desserts don’t (and shouldn’t!) go together. But I do like to have a few healthier options that’ll fit within my attempts at eating better – while still getting the delicious flavors. This recipe is absolutely perfect for that!
- 1 32-ounce container plain nonfat Greek Yogurt
- 1 small package fat free sugar free cheesecake pudding mix
- 2 pounds strawberries, diced
- Pour yogurt in a large bowl.
- Slowly add pudding mix a bit at a time, stirring between each addition until all the pudding mix has been added.
- Layer 1/3 cup yogurt mixture and strawberries in each jar until the jar is filled and one cup of yogurt has been used.
- Place jars in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour before serving.
- Top with lite whipped topping.
- Each jar has 1 Weight Watchers Freestyle point. Enjoy guilt-free deliciousness!
Adding other toppings may increase Weight Watchers Points value.

Update on Weight Watchers Points
Okay, so remember how I don’t do weight watchers?
Well, a reader who does do weight watchers says she originally calculated a double serving parfait to be closer to 12 points. Which would put a single-sized parfait serving at 6 points.
However, after some back-and-forth emailing, she used the information from the entire recipe to calculate the points. And, based on creating 7 servings out of this one recipe, she also came up with the 1 point via her weight watchers calculator.
So there you have it! This delicious, decadent dessert is only a single weight watchers point. Again, I’m not on weight watchers, so I’m relying on all y’alls help here to figure it out. So thank you for your help, friends!
And whether or not you’re on weight watchers, make sure you’re keeping track of your intake and exercise so you can enjoy desserts responsibly.
