Strawberry cheesecake in less than five minutes?  This simple recipe incorporates fruit, dairy, protein, and whole grains into one delicious bite! Cheesecake is a favorite decadent dessert, so we slimmed it down with silken tofu to cut the fat and increase the protein. With fresh, juicy strawberries, this easy treat is a perfect springtime refresher.

Ingredients:

4 Graham crackers
2 tablespoons low fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons silken tofu
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
4 teaspoons, honey

Directions:

  1. Remove Graham crackers from packaging and set aside.
  2. Whisk cream cheese and tofu together vigorously until smooth. Use a food processor, if necessary.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on each cracker.
  4. Place sliced strawberries on each cracker. Drizzle each cracker with honey.
  5. Serve with napkins; it is messy delicious fun!
