I haven’t always loved to drink coffee or enjoy the flavor in foods. Late bloomer to loving coffee as in I was over 30 when I decided the aroma and taste was heavenly. So, when I tell you that this easy recipe for Raspberry Almond Coffee Parfaits will change your life, I tell no lies. I could eat the cappuccino mousse straight from the bowl and not even blink.

It’s the perfect simple yet fancy dessert and using fresh raspberries makes it a delicious way to celebrate #SpringSweetsWeek. Once again this sweet event is being hosted by Heather from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks!   With the weather warming up and flowers beginning to bloom, it’s time to celebrate with spring sweets!

This year 24 food bloggers from around the country are sharing over 100 sweet recipes that are perfect for the spring season.  So say goodbye to the snow and cold and get ready to enjoy the best spring treats like cupcakes, cookies, pies, dessert boards, and even a few beverages!

For this recipe I am using two products that are my newest obsessions. Nairn’s gluten-free Oat Grahams and Door County Coffee‘s Raspberry Almond coffee. Both are just perfect for this recipe. The raspberry flavor in the coffee comes through so well in the mousse filling and those oat graham crackers are just the best to crumble and use as a little bit of a crunch factor.

How to Make Raspberry Almond Cappuccino Parfaits

This recipe is easy to whip up but does have a few steps to it. Nothing hard at all, in fact, the hardest part is pureeing the raspberries in the blender – see not hard at all!

Grab a resealable plastic bag and place 12 oat graham crackers in it and close the bag. Crush the crackers until they are as finely crushed as possible. Set aside for now.

Making the Raspberry Puree

There are a couple of ways to make raspberry puree. One is by cooking the raspberries with a little sugar on the stove top until the raspberries are broken down and a little thick.

The way I like to make it for these types of desserts is to pull out the blender, add the raspberries and two teaspoons of sugar – pulse till pureed and smooth.

With both methods, you need to pour the fruit filling into a fine mesh strainer and push through the puree without any of the seeds. Discard the seeds and use the raspberry puree. Set aside while making the mousse.

How to Make Raspberry Almond Coffee Mousse

Brew a one cup of the raspberry almond coffee and place in refrigerator to chill. While the coffee is chilling, grab a large bowl and beat the cream cheese until it’s smooth and creamy. Then slowly add the milk, and then chilled coffee, blending well. Add in the pudding mix and mix for about two minutes.

Let the mixture set for 5 minutes to thicken up a bit, then fold in HALF the container of whipped topping (save the rest to use as garnish).

In the bottom of each dessert glass, add a thin layer of crush graham crackers, a couple of spoonfuls of the coffee mousse, and then a layer of raspberry puree. Repeat layers once more and then end with coffee mousse with a sprinkling of crushed crackers.

Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Garnish with a dollop of whipped topping and half of a oat graham. Or, if you’re like me, I didn’t wait for it to chill before I devoured one.

  1. Oh mah gosh this flavor combination sound amazing! I’m a big coffee fan and always looking for new ways to get more java in my life 🙂 Cannot wait to try these parfaits!

  2. 5 stars
    A coffee-themed dessert is always a great idea in my book! I would’ve never thought to combine it with raspberries, but it sounds intriguing!
