Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries:

Ingredients:

  • 16 large strawberries
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol or other keto-friendly powdered sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional, for added flavor)
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut off the tops and carefully scoop out a small portion of the center to create a hollow space for the cheesecake filling. Make sure not to scoop too much, as you want the strawberries to hold their shape.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, powdered erythritol, vanilla extract, and lemon zest (if using). Mix well until the ingredients are smooth and creamy.
  3. Using a piping bag or a small spoon, fill each hollowed-out strawberry with the cheesecake filling. You can also use a plastic sandwich bag with one corner snipped off to create a makeshift piping bag.
  4. Arrange the filled strawberries on a serving platter.
  5. If desired, garnish each strawberry with a small mint leaf for a pop of color and flavor.
  6. Refrigerate the Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld and the filling to set.
