Cheesecake stuffed strawberries with coconut and lime flavors adding a tropical twist to a tasty finger dessert!
Fresh Stuffed Strawberries with Cheesecake Filling
Put the lime in the coconut and eat it all up! Who loves cheesecake?
Definitely me, but some times it’s a bit too rich, so these bite size treats are perfect!
The creamy texture of each bite is heavenly and just as delicious as a whole slice of cake.
Plus, this is a no-bake cheesecake! How simple is that?
In fact, you don’t even need to break out plates or any utensils! Perfect for a no fuss dessert anytime, but I mostly make these for guests and bring them to potluck events.
They are the first treats to be eaten, so plan on making a double batch! You’ll thank me later, promise.
