Foodie February: Treat Yourself with a little "F"

I love desserts....sometimes a little too much.  I also love fruit.  The strange thing is I never have really combined the two together.  I came across this recipe online and it looks so yummy I just could help share it with you!  I do not know about you, but with the fruit that is used it brings me to a warm and happy place that has SUN and HEAT!!

Tropical Fruit Parfait

1 passion fruit
125 g (1/2 of 250-g pkg.) Philadelphia Brick Cream Cheese, cut up, softened
2 tsp. sugar
1 can (14 fl oz/398 mL) pineapple chunks in juice, drained
1 large mango, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large papaya, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3/4 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping
3/4 cup pomegranate seeds 
CUT off small ends of passion fruit. Scoop out pulp into mesh strainer placed over blender. Press pulp with back of large spoon to extract juice into blender; discard pulp. Add cream cheese and sugar to blender; blend until smooth.
SPOON 1/4 cup of the pineapple chunks into each of six parfait or dessert glasses. Cover with layers of 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture, 1/4 cup mango cubes, additional 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture and 1/4 cup papaya cubes. Top each with 2 Tbsp. each whipped topping and pomegranate seeds.
