Strawberry ‘Cheesecake’ Bites

Strawberry ‘Cheesecake’ Bites



Prep time




  • 1 lb.  strawberries

  • 8 oz. vegan cream cheese (try Kite Kill or Tofutti!)

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam

  • 1/4 cup crushed animal crackers


  • Cut off the strawberries’ stems, then carve a hollow spot in each strawberry for the “cheesecake.”
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the vegan cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until nice and fluffy.
  • Pour in a pastry bag,* then fill each strawberry with some of the mixture.
  • Place the animal crackers in a sandwich bag and crush gently into crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the crumbs on top of the strawberries and voilà!


  • For a DIY pastry bag, cut a hole in the bottom corner of a sandwich bag and gently pipe out the filling. If you don’t want to hollow out the strawberries, turn the “cheesecake” mixture into a creamy dip. Just submerge each strawberry in the “cheesecake” mixture, roll in the animal cracker crumbs, and enjoy!
