Healthy treats are one of my favourite things to search for and create. I have a huge sweet tooth, so any recipe that satisfies it without expanding my waistline is a winner for me!
I stumbled across these healthy strawberry cheesecake bites on Pinterest and knew they were going to be on my “To Make” list. I didn’t used to be the biggest fan of Strawberries but since introducing them as a topping for my two ingredient pancakes they’ve become a favourite fruit of mine. Plus my boyfriend is a huge fan of cheesecake so I thought it would be a good recipes for him too.
There are many different variations of these healthy strawberry cheesecake bites, and the measurements I found were all different, so I kind of fumbled along and mixed a few recipes together. My finished product wasn’t the greatest as I got the cheesecake mixture incorrect and the consistency wasn’t thick enough, but after popping them into the freezer for a little while –it thickened it up. So I would definitely recommend taking the cheesecake mixture slowly and adding the ingredients as you see fit, as really it needs to be a thick mixture that doesn’t drip everywhere once you bite into the strawberry!
For my version of healthy strawberry cheesecake bites I used; strawberries, low-fat cream cheese, Greek yoghurt, honey, digestive biscuits and chocolate.
I first chill the strawberries before hollowing out the inside – ensure you don’t take out to much of the middle so that the strawberries don’t loose their shape. After hollowing out the strawberries cut straight across the bottom of them so they can stand upright on a plate. Now melt your choice of chocolate and dip the bottoms of the strawberries into the mixture.
Next I mix the Greek yoghurt, cream cheese and honey together to create the cheesecake filling. I don’t have measurements, but take it slowly and add a little Greek yoghurt at a time to ensure you don’t water down the creamy filling too much. Add just a squeeze of honey to sweeten up the cheesecake mixture. Either spoon or pipe your creamy filling into the centre of the strawberries.
Finish by bashing up digestive biscuits and sprinkling them on top. Place them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them, then enjoy!
