SRC - Stawberry Cheesecake Parfait

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal.  This month I was assigned the blog  This Mama Cooks.  I spent a lot of time looking at all the recipes on this blog, there were so many I wanted to try.  At first I was set on making the plantain chips  as I have been kind of obsessed with plantain chips recently, then I realised it would be better to make something that Randal would also try so I moved on to the tandoori chicken  as we both love indian food, but as soon as I found the strawberry cheesecake parfaits  I was sold, it looked so good and I knew we both would love it, I didn't make them as healthy as the original recipe though I must admit as the husband only likes full fat dairy products, so we went with regular cream cheese and vanilla yogurt which is why mine looks a little more yellow, and Randal made some whipped cream in place of the cool whip.

1 lb strawberries, sliced
1 tbsp sugar
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 cup whipped cream
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

Place the strawberries and the one tablespoon of sugar n a bowl, mix and set aside.

In a large bowl beat the cream cheese, yogurt, icing sugar and almond extract until smooth.  Fold in the whipped cream.

To assemble, layer the strawberries, graham cracker crumbs and cream cheese mixture and repeat the layers.

I think you may be the second person who made these for SRC. (Two people did the plantain chips, too.) Thanks for doing such a great job!
