  • 4 ½ teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons rum
  • 2 cups cold 1% milk
  • 2 packages (1 ounce each) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 ounces Neufchatel cheese at room temperature
  • cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 package ladyfingers (approximately 12)
  • 2 cups fat-free whipped topping
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
  • cocoa powder (optional) for garnish


  • -In a small bowl, dissolve the espresso powder in boiling water. And rum. Stir and set aside to cool.
  • -In a large bowl, whisk together the pudding mixes and the milk until thickened.
  • -With a hand mixer (or using a stand mixer) in a large bowl, whip the Neufchatel cheese and ricotta until smooth and creamy.
  • -Add the whipped cheese mixture into the pudding mixture and stir well to combine.
  • -Using a pastry brush, generously brush the espresso/rum mixture onto each ladyfinger (you may also wish to dip the ladyfingers quickly into the espresso/rum mixture).
  • -Gently break each soaked ladyfinger into smaller pieces to fit inside the parfait glasses.
  • -Using six parfait glasses, place a layer of soaked ladyfinger pieces in the bottom of each glass.
  • -Spoon the pudding/cheese mixture into a large zip-type plastic bag. Gently squeeze the mixture into the bottom corner of the bag. (You can also use a pastry bag), Snip the corner with a scissor.
  • -Without using too much pressure, top the ladyfingers layer with the pudding/cheese mixture.
  • -Using the same technique (with the whipped topping and the zip-type bag), pipe the whipped topping over the pudding/cheese layer.
  • -Continue with the additional layers of soaked ladyfingers, pudding/cheese, and the whipped topping to finish.
  • -Sprinkle each parfait with a light dusting of cocoa powder, and a small sprinkle of mini chocolate chips.
  • -Refrigerate at least 4 hours for best taste.
