Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Oh these are SPECIAL.  They are so fabulous tasting, simple to make and beautiful.  To think that we can have something so decadent and still lose weight!  This is the kind of thing that makes me glad to be low carb.  When I saw this recipe on Pinterest from Homestead Survival I knew it was ON!  It only took a bit of tweaking to make it low carb and the results were amazing.  MAKE IT!!!

5 STARS
Approx 16 servings (depending on how many and big your strawberries are)
approx 1.6 net carbs per serving (assuming 16 strawberries)


1 pound large strawberries
8oz cream cheese, softened
4 TBSP granulated Splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract


CRUMB TOPPING:
1 TBSP Almond Meal
1 tsp Splenda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


With a mixer, blend the cream cheese, Splenda and vanilla.  Spoon into a sandwich bag and put in the fridge to cool (optional, but cheesecake tastes better cold).  Meanwhile, wash and cut the tops off the strawberries.  With a paring knife, hollow out each strawberry.  Take cream cheese mixture out of fridge and cut one bottom corner off of sandwich bag.  Pipe cream cheese mixture into the hulled strawberries, squeezing out from bag through cut corner.  In a separate bowl, stir all of the crumb topping ingredients together.  Sprinkle mixture over each strawberry.  Serve immediately.  Can be refrigerated if not serving immediately.

    1. Hi Sharon, Yes, 1 serving for 1 strawberry. I kept rewriting the servings and I think I made it more confusing each time I wrote it. I made the assumption that the pound of strawberries would equal about 16 strawberries. Depending on how you hull them and how big they are, you may have more cheesecake than strawberries so it's kind of hard to say exactly.

  3. These were delicious! I took them to a potluck at work and they were a hit! My son said the topping tasted like Graham crackers.
