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

  1. Wash and pat dry the strawberries.
  2. FOR 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.
  3. Slice 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).
  4. In medium sized bowl, add cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until all is combined.
  5. Scoop 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.
  6. Pipe the filling into the middle of the opened 4 points; squeeze and pull up mounding filling slightly at the point.
  7. With a small flat grater, grate the chocolate chips over the stuffed strawberries.
    NOTE: This can be made ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate.
  8. FOR YOGURT FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
    Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, remove tops and hulls of strawberries leaving a nice center for filling.
  9. Fill with yogurt and top with granola
