These are so easy and yet so good! You can make them decadent with a cream cheese filling or healthy with a yogurt filling.

How to Make Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries (or Yogurt)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash and pat dry the strawberries.
  • 2FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
    Stand strawberries up with the point up and the top on a cookie sheet. They should sit flat. You may have to cut the green leaves and/or part of the strawberry off to make it sit flat.
  • 3Slice the strawberry through the point down toward the bottom. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY DOWN. Turn strawberry and make a counter-cut the opposite way. Again DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY DOWN. Pull all 4 points gently open (like a flower).
  • 4In medium sized bowl, add cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until all is combined.
  • 5Scoop filling into a wilton disposable bag with a large star tip.
    NOTE: if you don't have wilton bags, you can stand a ziploc bag in a tall glass, fill, then snip the end off to pipe the filling.
  • 6Pipe the filling into the middle of the opened 4 points; squeeze and pull up mounding filling slightly at the point.
  • 7With a small flat grater, grate the chocolate chips over the stuffed strawberries.
    NOTE: This can be made ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate.
  • 8FOR YOGURT FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
    Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, remove tops and hulls of strawberries leaving a nice center for filling.
  • 9Fill with yogurt and top with granola
