Pour cream through a sieve set into a bowl and discard solids.
Beat together cream cheese and cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until thickened (cream should not hold peaks), about 2 minutes.
Divide blackberries and blueberries among 6 bowls or parfait glasses and top with cream.
Cooks’ note: Cream can be beaten up to 4 hours ahead and chilled, covered.
