Strawberry ‘Cheesecake’ Bites

  • Prep Time 5 minutes
  • Cook Time 15 minutes
  • Servings 15


  • 1 lb. strawberries
  • 8 oz. vegan cream cheese (try Daiya or Tofutti!)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam
  • 1/4 cup crushed animal crackers


  1. Cut off the strawberries’ stems, then carve a hollow spot in each strawberry for the “cheesecake.”
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the vegan cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until nice and fluffy.
  3. Pour in a pastry bag,* then fill each strawberry with some of the mixture.
  4. Place the animal crackers in a sandwich bag and crush gently into crumbs.
  5. 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!
