Happy Canada weekend fellow Canucks!
To celebrate I am posting a delicious, low cal, red and white desert, the Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberry.
I found the recipe from Nutmeg Nanny and I knew I had to make them for my parents Canada day celebrations out at their cabin. It’s like all the cheese cake flavor you want but without all the guilt. But other than the general concept, my cheesecake stuffed strawberries took a very different turn from Nutmeg Nannys.
See, I like no bake cheesecakes, so instead of using Nanny’s recipe, here’s my own I used:
- 4 oz fat-free cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1/2 tub (40z) Light Cool Whip
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Graham crumbs (approx. 1/4 teaspoon a strawberry)
So super simple, blend all ingredients except crumbs into a creamy mixture, stuff into strawberries (I used a cake decorating bag and tip), sprinkle graham crumbs on top, eat.
Approximate calorie count per strawberry: 25 calories! Just the best 🙂
I just finished a 5 1/2 (ish) hour crochet throw so I’m off to get more yarn to make more!! I’ll show you pics and the pattern next post. Happy Canada Day long weekend!!!
