Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 ounces heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Sweetener Use preferred sweetener that equals about 2 Tablespoons of sugar.
  • 2 pints strawberries washed, dried with greens removed
  • mini chocolate chips or sprinkles optional

Instructions

  • Cream the cream cheese and sweetener in a glass bowl. Add vanilla extract and heavy cream to the bowl.
  • Whip with electric beaters just until the mixture is thick and creamy and peaks start to form, about 2 minutes. 
  • Store cheesecake mixture in the refrigerator while preparing strawberries.
  • Cut a thin slice off the bottoms of the strawberries where the stem was so they will sit nicely on a plate. 
  • Use a knife to cut deep slits in the top of each strawberry in the shape of an "x" being careful not to cut all the way through.
  • Fill a pastry bag or plastic bag with the cream cheese filling. Squeeze the filling to the corner of the bag and nip off the corner.
  • Gently spread the strawberries open and pipe the filling into the center of each strawberry.
  • Top strawberries with sprinkles or mini chocolate chips, if desired.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to enjoy.

Expert Tips:
  • Don't wash the strawberries until it's time to make the recipe. Then, quickly rinse and pat them dry.
  • Strawberries come in all shapes and sizes. Tall cylindrical-shaped strawberries and big fat round strawberries work best for the flower presentation.
  • The filling makes a wonderful dip for strawberries that don't make the cut. (And for other fruit too like raspberries!)
  • Another option is to stuff the strawberries with Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting using date paste!
  • The filling and/or the stuffed strawberries can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.
  • Another option is to hull out the center and use a small measuring spoon or pairing knife to remove the flesh in the center of the strawberry and pipe the filling inside.
  • Topping ideas: sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs or blueberries for a 4th of July celebration.
