  • 2 8oz Packs of Low-Fat Cream Cheese (Room Temperature)

  • 2tbsp Granulated Sugar or Honey
  • 2tbsp - (yes, a lot) of Vanilla Extract 
  • 1 Medium Sized Bowl
  • 1 Large Bowl
  • 6 8oz Mason Jars, or 3 16oz Mason Jars
  • Extra sliced strawberries and fresh mint for garnish (optional)


  1. Melt butter in a medium-sized bowl and add crushed graham crackers. Mix with your hands or a spoon until well combined.
  2. Add some of the graham cracker mixture to the bottom of your jars and set aside. 
  3. Put your cream cheese in a large bowl, and let it reach room temperature. Once your cream cheese reaches room temperature, grab a hand mixer or a stand mixer and whip for 3-4 minutes until smooth and fluffy. 
  4. Beat in the diced strawberries until combined with minimal clumps. 
  5. Add your heavy whipping cream, sugar or honey, and vanilla extract and whip until well combined with the other ingredients. 
  6. Add the strawberry mixture to your jars until they are about 1/3 full, and then layer with more of the graham cracker mixture, and then fill the remaining jar space with more of the strawberry mixture. Top with sliced strawberries, mint, and remaining graham cracker mixture.
  7. Chill jars for at least 2 hours, and enjoy!
