It's been a while since I last shared a healthy(er) or healthified recipe here. So today I'm back with these yum healthier strawberry cheesecake shots, just for you!
They are super easy to make, just watch the video below to see how ridiculously easy it is to make them. And they are yum! I mean, come on, wouldn't you want a luscious spoon of that?
Let's get started!
Due to what's going on right now, I have to admit I'm not able to develop and test the healthy(er) recipes as much as I would like to. Ingredients are not that easy to get, everybody knows that.
Having said that, it doesn't mean that I totally forgot about them. I love making healthy treats! I love it even more when I get to know that you guys are enjoying them. Hopefully bit by bit as the situation gets better, I will be able to do more.
So, as we all know, healthy is extremely subjective depending on each individual. For Marco and I, healthy means trying our best to use the least processed food as much as we can and swap the ingredients to the ones with better health benefits, whenever the situation permits.
For this recipe, I'm using honey as the sweetener instead of sugar. But look, if you only have sugar on hand right now, by all means just use it. We make do with what we have, no worries.
I'm also using instant oats and pecans for the base, instead of cookies or biscuits. You can use whatever nuts you have at home, no problem at all.
I'm using fresh strawberries for this recipe. Mine were not that sweet. But if yours are super sweet then reduce the amount of honey, alright?
Talking about strawberries, I remember the ones that we had in Germany. They didn't look much but they were extremely delicious and sweet! No doubt with those they wouldn't need any sweetener at all.
I haven't tried with frozen strawberries though, if you're wondering. I don't have any to test, unfortunately. But I'm guessing the frozen ones would also work in this. Let me know how it goes if you tried it with frozen strawberries.
So I hope you give this super healthier dessert a try. It's super easy and so versatile.

- In a bowl, add in cream cheese and whisk until fluffy. Now pour in the strawberry mixture and continue mixing until everything is well combined. Set aside.
