Are you all about simple recipes with simple ingredients? Me too. I love when basic ingredients come together and make a fantastic tasting dish everyone loves and this recipe for red, white, and blue stuffed strawberries completely fits the bill. It is easy, good for you, and looks absolutely beautiful on a plate!

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.

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!

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!

Food Gifts 

Stuffed strawberries make a great gift too! This is a super idea for

  • Mother's Day or Father's Day

  • 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.
