Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Made Healthier
These tasty cheesecake stuffed strawberries are a healthier dessert that will actually satisfy your sweet tooth for under 100 calories per serving.
- 1 lb. fresh strawberries
- 4 oz. cream cheese room temperature
- 1-2 Tbsp. honey I used 1 but if you prefer it sweeter, add more
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 a graham cracker crushed (about 2 Tbsp. crumbled)
In a small bowl, stir cream cheese, honey, and vanilla extract together until well mixed.*
Cut the hull out of each strawberry and cut the bottom tip off so that it will sit evenly on a plate.
Place cream cheese mixture into a decorating bag ( you can use a plastic bag and cut the corner off instead if desired).
Pipe cream cheese mixture into each strawberry in a circle to create a swirl.
Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs. The strawberries do not keep well so serve immediately.**
*If you use light cream cheese, do not use a hand mixer or it will become too runny. Putting in the fridge for half hour can help firm it back up some.
** The strawberries can be hulled and the filling can be prepared an hour beforehand, but don't squeeze the filling into the berries and sprinkle with the graham cracker crumbs until right before serving.
