Fat Free Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

You see these strawberries? They're absolutely AMAZING... and they're fat free! This is one of those recipes you MUST try. Melody posted it last week on her blog Cheat Day Cafe, and I was drooling all over myself. They taste even better than they look too. The filling is light, smooth, and creamy. I'm going to make it again, but put the filling in a graham cracker crust and cover the top with sliced strawberries. My kids went bonkers over this. It really is that good. You can also feel good about yourself while eating these. No junk-in-the-trunk will come from these little fat free babies, so enjoy :)

FAT FREE CHEESECAKE STUFFED STRAWBERRIES
18-20 large strawberries
1.4 oz. package of sugar free, fat free Cheesecake pudding
8 oz. fat free whipped topping, thawed
1 cup of skim milk

Mix the pudding and skim milk together with a whisk for 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes.Wash strawberries and cut off stems. Let strawberries dry on a paper towel on the cut end. With a sharp knife cut the strawberry as shown in the picture.

Put filling in a large zip loc bag and cut the end off (or pastry bag if you have one). Put tip in strawberry and squeeze filling until it comes out of the sides and top of the strawberry. Store loosely covered in the fridge.

Strawberry Cheesecake is probably one of my all-time favorite desserts, so the idea of getting the same taste with healthier ingredients, sounds pretty ideal!

Melody said...

So glad you liked these! They look beautiful! As for the brownie pops, I think you could use cookie cutters if you made the brownies pretty thick. I might have to try that! Have a great day!

a cube of butter is just a stick of butter. I'm pretty sure it measures out to be a 1/2 cup. hope that helps!

Missy said...

Fat free is right up my ally, but that seems like a lot of work for just a small amount of enjoyment.
However, I do post with the disclaimer that I am definitely no chef. =)

Happy SITS day!

I'll have to remember this sweet way to use strawberries next spring when it's strawberry season! I think I'd gobble up all those strawberries in an instant! :)

Kimmy C said...

Ohhh - my daughter would LOVE these!

sandy said...

Seriously?! I am drooling!

Joanie M said...

OK, I'm DEFINITELY going to be making these this Sunday! I need good sugar-free desserts. Getting tired of jello. LOL Visiting from SITS!

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Those look so delicious!

Christina said...

I'm always on the look-out for easy things to make that look more difficult than they are... this qualifies!

Now I can continue to deceive friends who think I'm a great cook... ;-)

Annie@A View On Design said...

Mighty M said...

OH, yum!

Robin said...

oh my, this sounds so yummy....

Stalker v1.5 said...

Sweet baby Jesus why am I just now finding out about this????

Kim said...

When I saw this pic I wasn't sure I would try them, but seeing as it's cream cheese pudding, I'm all over this idea. FL is the winter strawberry capital of the south (at least that's what they tell us :)). So this will be a 'must make' during strawberry season!

Kim said...

I wasn't sure if I would make these or not,then saw it was cheesecake pudding, I'm all over it! FL is the winter strawberry capital of the US (at least that's what they tell us!) These are a 'must make' when they are in season again, thanks! (I might have accidentally posted on this twice--if so sorry, I thought the comment was lost.)

Amie Kirk said...

YUMMMMM!!! Can't wait to try these out!

The Redhead Riter said...

Fantastic idea!

Sprinkle with a little gramham cracker crunchies and you have it all.

Andi said...

OMG I love this idea - I am going to do it TONIGHT!!!

Yummy!!! I make something similar, but I hollow out the strawberry and fill with dark chocolate and then bake them. They come out and they are hot and ohh so yummy. I top off with whip cream and enjoy!!! You have to try it sometime.
