3 Easy Steps: Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Serves: 2
Prep: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons light/reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup natural light whipped topping
  • 1 packet natural no-calorie sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 10 large strawberries
  1. To make the filling, in a medium bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and strawberries. Mix until smooth and uniform. Fold in 1 teaspoon chocolate chips.
  2. Slice the stem ends off the strawberries, about 1/2 inch below the stem, revealing an opening in each berry. Use a narrow spoon to remove about half of the flesh inside each berry, allowing room for filling.
  3. Spoon filling into the bottom corner of a plastic bag, snip off the tip of that corner to create a small hole, and pipe mixture through the hole into the strawberries. Top with remaining 1 teaspoon chocolate chips.

Tips:

• Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each strawberry, so the bellies sit flat.
• Use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the flesh!
