Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

Pink, it was love at first sight.

5 ingredients / sugar-free / gluten-free / dairy-free / vegan. Full recipe:

A bright pink dessert, perfect for celebrating both the beginning of May and the arrival of a new royal princess! It’s a safe bet this new baby princess will be the most stylishly dressed baby ever.

What’s not a safe bet? I don’t know what the people putting money down on names Chardonnay, Mercedes, or Ringo were thinking. (Although… some of the names people bet on for George were even crazier.)

Strawberry Cheesecake Dip ingredients: 1 cup strawberries, stems removed / 1 tsp pure vanilla extract / 1 tbsp... Full recipe:

Going back to this creamy strawberry cheesecake dip. One taste and you’re going to want to devour the entire bowl…

And that is perfectly okay!

That’s a mini tripod above. And a chopstick.

Setting up a food photography shoot with only one set of hands, I sometimes have to improvise.

Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

  • 1 cup strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese spread, such as Tofutti
  • 1/16 tsp uncut stevia OR 2 tbsp powdered sugar or maple syrup
  • if using stevia or powdered sugar, also add 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Using a blender or hand blender, process all ingredients until completely smooth. This strawberry cream cheese dip also gets thicker as it sits and can be made a day in advance if desired. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Yum!! This sounds amazing! I’m a huge fan of anything strawberry cheesecake flavor, I definitely need to recreate this, plus I think I already have most of the ingredients on hand!

  2. Ana @ Ana's Rocket Ship says

    So what did you have planned for if it was a boy? And this looks so pretty and pink!!! Do you think it would work using silken tofu instead of the cream cheese? It’s really hard to get vegan cream cheese where I am!

  3. Melissa Semra says

    I never knew i could be so mesmerized by pictures of food.
    This cheesecake dip looks amazing!

  4. Jules @ WolfItDown says

  6. Maria says

    Omg, I would probably want to just drink the whole dip on its own! That tripod trick is so clever and cute! Once again, beautiful work, thanks for the recipe!

    So true about how, no matter if we follow another’s recipe to the ‘t’,

  9. Kathleen says

    This is scrumptious! My first bite made me think about his would make a pretty awesome ice cream!!
    I had to make this while I’m waiting for my Pineapple Coconut breakfast cake to come out of the oven.
    You’re my “Go-To” girl when it comes to healthy snacks. Thanks Katie! <3
