Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Strawberries

Here's the Dish

These Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Strawberries are anything but your ‘typical’ valenties day treat! They are so simple to make, only require a few ingredients, and are healthy enough to eat for breakfast! I personally love to make a big batch of these and have them on hand in the freezer when I am craving something chocolate! Who ever said chocolate isn’t healthy and delicious at the same time hasn’t yet tried my recipe for Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Strawberries! Who knew ‘clean eating’ could taste this good!?!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 10-15 minutes.

1

Wash strawberries, and lightly pat dry. Cut stem off and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients until mixed thoroughly. Dip each strawberry, one at a time in chocolate mixture, using a small spoon to help coat each side of the strawberry.

2

Place each chocolate covered strawberry on a baking pan covered with parchment or wax paper (or tin foil that is well coated with non-stick cooking spray).  Place baking pan in the freezer for 20-30 minutes, or until the cheesecake coating firms up enough to handle, (but not totally frozen, or the strawberry will be too hard). Cut strawberries in half if desired, (or you can leave them whole if they are smaller strawberries). Enjoy!

(Note: If serving at a later time, leave in the freezer overnight, or up to one week, (covered), and remove from the freezer 15-20 minutes before serving.)

1 cupPlain low fat Greek yogurt
3-6 pkts Stevia (or 1/2-1 tbs baking stevia OR 1-2 tbs sweetener of choice), or to taste

Katie's Tip!

I love to leave these in the freezer as a quick dessert or sweet snack! I take them out about 5-10 minutes before eating them and they are the perfect treat when I'm craving chocolate!

Is it really 2 tbs of cocoa powder twice, or was that just a typo? Sorry to point it out, I just want to make sure before I try them!! :)

Great recipe-will have to try..but is the nutrition info correct? A strawberry has much more than a g of sugar…

Hi Yana One strawberry actually has 1g or less than 1 gram of sugar. The sugar in fruits is not refined sugar and is more easily digested and has a less negative impact.
