Raspberry Cream Cheese Parfait

How often do you cook a meal for just you? As a stay-at-home wife, I rarely cook lunch for myself because I hate to eat alone, especially during weekdays. Oh! I just realized now why I always open a youtube video and eat! :-D I have sumptuous breakfast and then follow with some short meals every 2 to 3 hours that is usually fruits or nuts or some days even chips and cookies! and in some rare occasions I make this kinda dessert - Raspberry Cream Cheese Parfait! And this, my dear friends, I do not mind having alone! ;-p

I made this quickly with very little raspberry l had for lunch time. As it is getting hotter even with the AC on, I was craving for something really cold. Usually a quick smoothie would have sufficed but when you just did a 30 minute workout, it is a pleasure to whip up a whole cup of cold creamy goodness all for yourself!

I was in a crafty mood trying to make some flowers with tissue paper LOL! Though intentionally placed, the result is more like it photobombed my subject! :-D

This is a quick recipe because I have used the Almarai Cream Cheese Spread instead of the cream cheese cubes.
