Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake Strawberries are perfect for the 4th of July or any summer potluck or picnic. They make a healthier dessert option and look so festive. Plus they are simple to make.

Just cut fresh strawberries in half. I look for really big ones because then you can really load the cheesecake filling on them.  🙂

There’s no need to hull the strawberries when serving them halved like this which greatly cuts down on prep time.

A simple cheesecake filling is made from cream cheese, sugar, whipped topping, and a little almond extract adds awesome flavor.

Pipe the cheesecake filling on the strawberry halves using a large star tip and then press a few fresh blueberries into the filling of each one for an awesome red, white, and blue treat.

Once made just refrigerate until needed. They are a great make ahead party food.

    A light and delicious ending to a big burger patriotic meal. Easy recipe, and loved by everyone. Thank you!

  2. I made these but did not have almond extract. I used raspberry extract instead. It was amazing. I can’t imagine it being any more decadent. Love them!

  3. We made these as a dairy-free version today. They turned out great! Maybe your strawberries were bigger than our but we ended up with WAY more of the cream than we needed. We went through 24 straweberries and still had lots leftover. No worries, we’ll end up using the cream for other things, but would probably make a bit less next time. Thanks for the fun and easy recipe!
