4th of July Stuffed Strawberries

Vegan cheesecake

These red, white, and blue cheesecake stuffed strawberries are festive, simple, and the perfect addition to any 4th of July BBQ, dinner party, picnic, or potluck.  Watch the how-to video below to see how it’s done!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of your favorite vegan cheesecake filling (If you don’t already have a favorite vegan cheesecake recipe, try this one made with vegan cream cheese, which is now easy to find!)
  • 15 strawberries (large and uniformly shaped)
  • 15 blueberries

You’ll need a sharp knife for detailed strawberry carving and a plastic bag to use for piping (simply cut a small hole in the corner and squeeze the cheesecake filling out of it). Don’t worry, it really is as easy as it looks in the video!

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 1 container of vegan cream cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Blend all ingredients and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Chill for at least one hour before piping into the strawberries.

Note: You can also use vegan frosting or coconut whipped cream in place of the cheesecake filling.
