Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
So many funny, awkward, or crazy things have happened to me since moving.
I could fill three notebooks with stories of situations in which I’ve found myself–situations with friends, situations with guys, or sometimes even with strangers… and I wish I could figure out a way to write them all here without embarrassing or hurting the people that the stories are about.
Do you ever look back on a decision you made and think, “Why did I not do this sooner?!”
That’s how I feel about moving to Washington, D.C. I should have left Texas much sooner.
This particular post is dedicated to my friend, Jess—one of the many wonderful new friends I’ve been lucky to make this year. When she found out about my website, she asked if I could post a recipe that was super-simple, only required a few ingredients, and did not involve an oven. She then showed me a picture of something she had recently made: Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. (Her photo was beautiful, by the way.) I decided a twist on the concept of cheesecake stuffed strawberries would make a perfect Memorial Day post.
- 1 container fresh strawberries
- Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting OR vanilla yogurt of choice (such as Wholesoy) – about 2 tsp filling per strawberry
- Optional mini chocolate chips for garnish
- Optional graham crackers for garnish
Wash the strawberries, cut off the stems, and scoop out a well in the middle of each, using a small spoon or knife. If you want the berries to stand up, cut off the bottoms of the berries as well. Eat the unused berry pieces as you work! Fill the hollow section of each berry with yogurt of choice. (If you’d prefer a cream cheese or coconut filling, I’ve listed alternative filling ideas below the second photo in this post.) Garnish with graham cracker crumbs or mini chocolate chips, and serve immediately.
Question of the Day:
Are there any decisions you were initially afraid to make, but that you now look back and wonder, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”
