Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
I first made this recipe for stuffed strawberries about 10 years ago. I planted a small strawberry patch just off the deck and that first summer, it really didn't do much. The following year? It went crazy!
I would pick and fill my large colander with huge beautiful berries almost every day.
We had so many strawberries I couldn't give them away fast enough.

No-bake cheesecake strawberries
If you are a fan of strawberry cheesecake, then you will really like the flavor pairings of this creamy sweet cheesecake filling. Pairing soft cream cheese, a bit of powdered sugar, vanilla extract (try our homemade version!), and almond extract creates healthy stuffed strawberries that taste like a cheesecake!
My stuffed strawberries recipe has been shared more times than I can think of.
Strawberry Dessert Tray
I like making these treats for any occasion. Stuffed strawberries make quite an entrance when brought to a party, brunch, or backyard picnic!
You can serve these fancy berries as is, drizzled with chocolate or try adding a blueberry on top for a patriotic dessert. Serve these alongside delicious Snow Cone Cupcake for a fresh fruit option.
It is so festive and really looks fabulous when placed on the dessert table at your cookout!
So grab those freshly picked strawberries and stuff them! Add a blueberry, drizzle with chocolate or enjoy plain, they are delicious no matter what!
How to make red, white, and blue stuffed strawberries
Have these ingredients and tools on hand to make this process quick and easy.
Wash fresh strawberries and dry well with a paper towel.
Cut off the green top so berry can sit flat.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, almond extract, and sugar. Mix well with a hand blender or spoon until creamy.
Cut an ‘X’ in the pointed end of strawberry, careful not to cut all the way through.
Fill a pastry bag or zip-lock baggie with cream cheese mixture. Make a small snip in corner of bag.
Carefully pipe filling into center of ‘X’ in berry.
Top each with a blueberry.
Stuffed strawberries make a great gift too! This is a super idea for
- Mother's Day or Father's Day
- Birthday or anniversary gift as well as a
- Hostess gift.
Make stuffed berries at least an hour or two beforehand and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. If your strawberries are firm, they will last for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
