Yogurt Cream Cheese with Strawberry Sauce

This is a very simple recipe with cream cheese and Greek yogurt topped with a delicious sweet strawberry sauce. The dish is creamier and feels more like a dessert than Greek yogurt by itself. It’s a good way to use up any extra cream cheese you may have in your fridge (especially if you shop from Costco!) I think it’s a nice and tart dessert to have during the sunny weather especially with other tropical fruits such as sweet mango and papaya! The strawberry sauce is also really enjoyable on almost any dessert topping~ (…or by itself! Nobody’s judging!) 😊

Yield: 8 servings
Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 14 oz strawberries, hulled and chopped into small squares
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • cut fruit (optional) I used papaya and mango.

Instructions

  1. Mix strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a pot and heat over high heat for 15 minutes while stirring constantly. Remove from heat earlier if strawberries lose their shape. Let the strawberry sauce cool completely.
  2. Whisk cream cheese and Greek yogurt together in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy. Divide cream cheese and yogurt mixture evenly into 8 bowls and top with the strawberry sauce and other desired fruit.
