So most of my friends know that I am a big time Aldi shopper. Over the past few weeks they have had great strawberries at a great price ($1.19 per Pound). Now, strawberries are not my favorite to just eat by themselves due to their slightly tart nature but I found a solution! I made a few variations on a cream cheese dip for them.
Version 1 (not the healthiest)
2 ounces of 1/3 lees fat creme cheesed
2-3 Tablespoons of powdered sugar or to taste
1/4 Teaspoon vanilla
Warm Cream cheese for 10-20 seconds in Microwave or until spreadable but not hot. Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla.
Wash 5-6 strawberries, cut off tops and cube or slice berries.
Layer berries and cream cheese mixture into a bowl. Enjoy!
Version 2 (slightly healthier version)
1 ounce cream cheese
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
Warm Cream cheese slightly and whisk with yogurt. Layer with washed berries.
Version 3 The healthiest way to go...
Layer washed berries with vanilla yogurt :)
want to make it even better?
Add some sliced banana and drizzle some warmed Nutella on top MMM....
I was amazed how full I was after eating this.
If you really love a cheesecake type flavor version 1 is for you. I like that and version 2 VERY much!
Considering I have a serious sweet tooth I was really happy with this snack. I tried not to "drown" the berries in the creme so I would not counteract all the strawberry goodness.
How will you treat yourself this week?
