A beautiful and silky New York Style cheesecake with fresh strawberries is one of my guilty pleasures. In my humble opinion I didn’t think there was a better dessert after a summer dinner. That is until I created my tasty Mini Frozen Strawberry Cheesecakes. Making a regular cheesecake is fun but very time consuming and delicate. I enjoy making a traditional cheesecake but unfortunately I can never find the time. It took me many sleepless nights to eventually find the solution to my cheesecake craving dilemma.
Using Challenge Dairy Strawberry Cream Cheese and instant pudding mix I created a fun & fast frozen dessert that is close to traditional cheesecake and perfect for the summer. Layering the strawberry flavors using Challenge Dairy Cream Cheese, Strawberry Milk, and fresh Strawberries really brings out the fruity goodness in this dessert. I know you’ll enjoy this fresh and creamy treat that is becoming very popular in my house!
Mini Frozen Strawberry Cheesecakes
8 oz. Challenge Dairy Strawberry Cream Cheese
3 c. Strawberry milk
1 pkg. instant strawberry or vanilla pudding
1/2 cup fresh diced strawberries
1/2 cup crumbled graham cracker
Using a hand mixer, stir the cream cheese until soft. Gradually blend in 1/2 cup of milk until mixture is very smooth. Add remaining milk and the pudding mix. Beat slowly with hand mixer for 1 minute. Fold in fresh diced strawberries. Pour into fun shaped molds and sprinkle crumbled graham cracker on top. Freeze for 6 hours. Pop out of molds and enjoy!
