 Recipe: Low Fat, Low Cal Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Prep time: Less than 20 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Serving size: 2 stuffed strawberries

 

Ingredients:

12 medium size fresh strawberries

⅛ tsp of vanilla extract

4 Tbsp of fat-free cream cheese, softened

3 tsp any zero calorie sweetener (we suggest natural sweeteners like Stevia or Monk Fruit)

1 low-fat graham cracker, crushed

 

Instructions:

Cut the tops off the strawberries. Place flat side down and then cut an X across the point at the top, with a sharp knife.  Be careful to not cut through all the way through the strawberry. Set the strawberries aside.

In a small bowl mix your filling (Softened cream cheese, sweetener and vanilla extract).

Place filling into a pastry bag (or you can use a plastic bag with the tip cut off).

Carefully open the strawberry and gently fill with the cheesecake mixture.

Dip the top of the strawberries into graham cracker crumbs.

You may serve immediately or chill until needed.
