Blueberry-Lime ParfaitsPosted: July 22, 2008
4 cups fresh blueberries, divided
1/3 cup Riesling or other slightly sweet white wine
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 cup (4 oz) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp. grated lime rind
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup fat-free sour cream
Grated whole nutmeg (optional)
1. Place 2 cups blueberries in a large, heavy saucepan; press berries 2 times with a potato masher to slightly crush. Add wine, syrup, and juice; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium; cook 3 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature. Stir in 2 cups blueberries. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
2. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at low speed until smooth. Add sugar, rind, and vanilla; beat well. Add sour cream; beat at low speed just until combined.
3. Spoon about 2 1/2 Tbsp. berry mixture into each of 6 (6 oz) parfait glasses; top with about 1 1/2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture. Repeat layers with remaining berry and cream cheese mixtures. Sprinkle each serving with nutmeg, if desired.
