Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

While these aren’t typical cheesecakes, they taste similar without all the fuss. Full of strawberry flavor and super creamy too. What more could you want? 😀

Why this recipe works

  • It’s simple – You can’t lose with a 30 minute recipe, right?
  • Uses fresh ingredients – I love springtime because the fresh berries are in season and so incredibly juicy!
  • Great for parties – These little desserts are fabulous for gatherings of all kinds – graduations, baby and wedding showers, and holiday get-togethers!

Freaky Friday Blog Hop

Why is today so special you ask? Well, that is because today is Freaky Friday, hosted by Michaela at An Affair from the Heart!  No, not the movie where the mom and daughter switch places, but a good old fashioned blog hop with some of my favorite food blogger friends!

We secretly get assigned a blogger from our group, and then we all reveal who we had and what we made on the same Friday, and that is today! See below for ALL the fun Freaky Friday recipes created by my blog hop pals!

Devour Dinner

I’m so pleased to have been assigned Rebecca from Devour Dinner for this swap! Rebecca is part of my Mastermind Group and so I have the pleasure of seeing her pretty face on Zoom every other week. Plus I met her in person in Nashville last fall and she has the best heart!

Like myself, Rebecca is a boy mom (including her dogs)! She’s a grandmother of one precious girl and has another grandchild on the way. She prides herself on creating flavorful recipes with common ingredients while teaching others to develop a passion for cooking.

Rebecca specializes in Instant Pot and Air Fryer recipes, and I’m following along closely after purchasing a mega combo machine that does both! I’m definitely eyeing her Delicious 15 Bean Soup and Instant Pot Goulash! Also, her Air Fryer Carrots look AMAZING!

Also, do yourself a favor and follow along on Rebecca’s Facebook Page. She does a LIVE every Sunday and you won’t want to miss out!

I chose THIS recipe on Rebecca’s site because 1) it’s simple, 2) it’s delicious, and 3) I LOVE strawberries plus cheesecake! They are so good!

Ingredient Notes

This recipe uses simple ingredients using mostly pantry staples.

  • Strawberries – Use fresh strawberries. I tried to use a mixture of medium and large berries.
  • Cream Cheese – Using full-fat cream cheese will yield a thicker, richer filling.
  • Sour Cream – Just a couple of tablespoons to balance the sweetness.
  • Vanilla – A necessary ingredient in most dessert recipes.
  • Powdered Sugar – I recommend sifting your powdered sugar to avoid the random clumps!
  • Heavy Cream – Just a tablespoon or so will help to get a creamy consistency.
  • Toppings – I used some mini chocolate chips on some of the bites, but you could try other toppings – like graham cracker crumbs, plump blueberries, or even some toasted nuts!

How to make No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Step 1
Prep the strawberries. Rinse the strawberries in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Use a sharp knife to hull the strawberries. Then take the bottom tip off so it sits flat on a plate or platter.

Step 2
Make the filling. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, powdered sugar, and heavy cream. Use a hand mixer to mix until creamy. Then add to a piping bag with your choice of tip.

Step 3
Pipe filling. Squeeze the piping bag to fill each strawberry and pile it up on top. If you have extra filling, just add more strawberries!

Step 4
Add toppings. If desired, add a few mini chocolate chips to the top of the filling. You can also add other toppings of your choice!

Step 5
Serve. Serve the strawberries on a pretty plate with or without toppings.

Step 6
Store. Store the strawberries in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Best served the first day, but they’ll stay pretty fresh for an extra day or so.

Recipe Tips

  1. Pat dry the strawberries. As mentioned above, you’ll want to use paper towel to pat them dry. They’ll stay fresh longer in the fridge PLUS they’ll look better too!
  2. Sift the powdered sugar. I ALWAYS sift my powdered sugar to avoid those annoying clumps.
  3. Use a piping tip/bag. Using a piping kit will add a presentation factor that you’re going to want. Plus it’s much easier to use rather than a spoon.
  4. Have extra strawberries on hand. You may have more filling than you can use on one pound of berries. So have some extra just in case!
  5. Make the cheesecake bites the day of your gathering (for best results). I don’t recommend making these too far in advance. You can, however, make the filling the day before and pipe them shortly before serving.
