This was a hit at both my birthday party celebration and at several events I’ve taken it to – a wonderful way to celebrate and enjoy fresh summer strawberries!

 

  • 4 oz softened cream cheese **
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream  **
  • 3/8 cup of sweetener, powdered (Monk Fruit, Swerve or erythritol)
    • less healthy option would be confectioners or powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbls of fruit only jam (strawberry preserves)
  • zest from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • about 8 graham crackers (you can find gluten free)
  • 1 pound strawberries – trimmed and sliced

** To make it dairy free, use a dairy-free cream cheese and canned coconut milk

 

  1. Put the cream cheese in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft.
  2. Add in the cream, sweetener, jam, juice, zest and anilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.
    • This may take a bit of time depending on the type of mixer you use.
  3. Layer the crackers in the bottom of a 7″x11″ pan/serving dish (select one that will look nice when you serve it).
    • This recipe will make either 2 or 3 layers, based on how thick you make each layer and how deep your dish is.
  4. Spoon on the cream mixture and then a layer of sliced strawberries
  5. Repeat the layering process 2-3 times unit your cream mixture is used.
    • Crackers, Cream Mix, Sliced Strawberries
    • Cover with plastic wrap
  6. Chill for at least 5 hours or overnight – this lets the crackers soften.
