If tofu is not your thing (although I recommend giving it a go), whipped cream cheese creates a heavenly pillow for juicy ripe fruit.


  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 large papaya, peeled, diced (about 2 cups diced)
  • 4 large kiwis, peeled, diced (about 2 cups diced)
  • 3 gingersnaps, crumbled


  1. In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese,powdered sugar, whipping cream and vanilla extract with a hand mixer.
  2. Whip the tofu mixture until fluffy.
  3. To assemble, spoon 1 inch of papaya into a tall wine glass or parfait cup, top with a dollop of whipped cream cheese, spoon 1 inch of kiwi on top, followed by another dollop of whipped cream cheese, and repeat. Top with crumbled gingersnaps.
  4. Keep cold in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
