Red, White and Blue Parfait...with a healthier tweak!

Today at Back to the basics I posted part 2 of Red, White and Blue treats from around the web.  The Mini Cheesecake Trifle is simple to make but I like to make it even more simple!  
Here goes my version:

Parfait for the 4th

Serves 6-8

Graham Cracker Crumble
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 full sized crackers)
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 Tablespoon Agave
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon (or more)

1-32 oz. Yogurt (I use Stoneyfield Farm 0% fat Organic, Vanilla)
2 cups cool whip, or freshly whipped cream

Fresh berries (strawberries and blueberries shown)


Graham Cracker Crumble
Crush crackers in a large ziplock type bag. Pour crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter into a bowl and stir until fully combined. Allow to cool.

Slice or chop strawberries.

Dessert Assembly
To create the dessert as shown, layer a spoonful of graham cracker crumble, then a layer of yogurt, fresh chopped strawberries, add a dollop of whipped cream and top with fresh blueberries.
