This easy strawberry cheesecake bites recipe is satisfying without the guilt!
These happen to be delicious, the perfect portion size and a great after school treat!
Of course, you sent a great school lunch today with your little one; but I am sure you might be looking for ways to get them to eat more fruit. Easy-to-put-together that is!
Don’t you love when you make a recipe that tastes like you had to have spent hours preparing it, when in reality it’s a snap to put together? That is exactly what you get with these strawberry cheesecake bites.
They are absolutely divine! Picture a rich and thick slice of strawberry cheesecake without all the work, half the mess, and in bite-size form. As a matter of fact, because of their size you’ll find it all too tempting to just pop the whole thing in your mouth.
Of course, this is just speculation- I’m not speaking from experience.
They make a great addition to your child’s lunchbox! It is even a treat that I will include in my son’s (who has type 1 diabetes) lunchbox without guilt. With roughly 9 carbohydrates per “bite”, two of these will give him a treat fix and half of a serving of fruit. I like to add additional strawberry slices (that haven’t been made into “bites”) to his lunch so that it seems like he is getting more.
Wouldn’t these be perfect to serve hungry kids this summer, especially once strawberries are in season? Or do you have any graduation parties coming up that you’ll be helping with? If so, these would be a great appetizer!
Not to mention, they are seriously so easy to make! Maybe even a little too easy…you’ll want to be making them every day. Plus, they are made with staple ingredients, so chances are you will already have most of the needed ingredients on hand.
This would be a good recipe to enlist the help of your kids with. They’ll love dunking fresh strawberries in the cream mixture and seeing how the crushed graham cracker crumbs sticks to the strawberries, when you roll it around.
I’m confident this dip would work well with a variety of other fruits as well, as the dip on its own is absolutely heavenly. The possibilities are endless!
