Strawberries and summer! They go together like peanut butter and jelly, milk and cereal, and scrambled eggs and ketchup! Ok...maybe not everyone agrees with the last one. Don't knock it til you've tried it!! Anywho...back to strawberries! How about some delicious Strawberry Cheesecake Bites?!
These are my new favorite summer snack! So easy, so tasty, and so healthy!
All you need is Fiber One Original cereal, fat free cream cheese, vanilla, sweetener, and of course strawberries!
You can also use graham crackers or any other type of cereal you like!
Start by cutting the tops off the strawberries and rinsing them well.
I am not a germ-a-phob my any means, but I always wash my fruit extra good. I always picture all the crazy old ladies opening the strawberry containers and squeezing the berries looking for the best package...
Next, take a knife and hollow out the strawberries.
You can leave most of the strawberry, just make a nice little hole for some creamy filling.
Speaking of creamy filling...
This is so simple to make. Just mix together some fat free cream cheese, vanilla, and sweetener if you want. You could also add some cocoa powder or cinnamon to make some crazy flavored creamy filling!
We also need to make the "crust" part of the strawberry cheesecake bites. I love using the Fiber One Cereal but use your imagination and grind up whatever you like!
I threw in one sweetener too. Just add your cereal to a blender and get it nice and fine.
All ready to assemble!!!
Silly me...using a white bowl to show white cream cheese filing...Oh Kim...
Just spoon a little of the filling into the hollowed out strawberry.
I usually stuff them pretty good!! The crust needs something to hold on to so it's ok if the cream cheese is sticking out a bit.
Dip into your crust...
And there ya have it!! Easy peasy strawberry squeezy!!! Ok, doesn't flow off the tongue quite so well...
How awesome do those look!!!
The best part is that this whole plate is only 120 calories!! I picked the biggest strawberries too!
You can dip these in all sorts of things!! Chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, coconut...
What is it about sprinkles that make everything look so fantastic!?
So pretty and colorful!
How amazing would these look sitting out at a picnic, BBQ, or party?!
I think for the 4th of July I am going to make them and dip in blue sprinkles!! Red, white, and blue!!
That first bite is perfection!
They are cold, creamy, and sweet! Yum!
