Bite Sized Cheesecake Delight
If you’re already a fan of snacking on strawberries, then you’re in for a real treat when you prepare this recipe. And really, strawberries are the perfect fruit choice to use for these cheesecake bites — they’re incredibly flavorful, fairly low carb, and they provide all kinds of fantastic nutritional benefits. In depth clinical studies have found that strawberries are good for everything from lowering inflammation in your body to helping to prevent obesity and the related heart disease risks that come with it.

To make the cheesecake bites, you’ll be needing one pound of fresh strawberries. Cut off the tops of them, and then hollow them out with a paring knife. You’re going to be filling them with a tasty homemade cheesecake filling, made by beating together the cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and Stevia. When you make this dessert, you’re probably going to want to use cream cheese that is at room temperature, as it will be a lot easier to mix with the other ingredients.
After preparing the filling, place it in a pastry bag and then carefully pipe it into the openings on your strawberries. If you haven’t already, go ahead and melt your dark chocolate (make sure that it’s as sugar-free as possible!) and drizzle it over the strawberries. Dark chocolate makes for a perfect match to use with the strawberries to complement their health benefits, as it’s widely known to provide some excellent heart benefits in its own right thanks to its cocoa polyphenols and monounsaturated fat content.

Before serving these bite sized snacks, make sure to refrigerate them for at least 15 minutes after drizzling them with the chocolate. I’m sure you’ll agree that these are absolutely perfect as a keto treat. They’re a tasty low carb treat, with the dark chocolate and cream cheese filling each add a ton of healthy fats to go along with the antioxidant and vitamin content of the strawberries.
