Strawberry Obsession

I may or may not be a strawberry dessert obsessed person! Especially in the summer time! Strawberries are just so easy to make sweet and delicious desserts with. Not only are they easy to make yummy treats with, but they are beautiful!

This dessert was another one of my “accidental” creations. I needed something to use my cream cheese in and something that I could use all my strawberries in. Alas! This delicious and easy masterpiece was created!

It’s called “double strawberry” because, instead of just having strawberries on top, there are strawberries inside! Lot’s of them! So…you get double the strawberries! Yes please!

I made this cheesecake twice now, and both times, it was literally devoured before I could take any pretty pictures. So, this is officially my first recipe post that doesn’t have pretty pictures of all angles and with pretty lighting. Just the two hastily taken pictures before the cake was destroyed by my husband and kids.

Needless to say, this cheesecake was a hit!

Nothing fancy, no pretty lighting…just raw and unfiltered cheesecake, in all of it’s glory! See, we all have messy kitchens and bad lighting! That’s ok! Just be happy to make delicious and healthy treats! That’s what I do.

11 Year Celebration

Two weeks ago was my husbands and my 11 year anniversary! Yay us! I made this cheesecake for the first time on that weekend, and my husband fell in love with it. He especially loved the tiny hint of cinnamon in the crust!

As he stuffed his happy face with the delicious cake, he nodded his approval and mumbled with his mouth full. Once he was done chewing (barely), I asked what he said. He told me, “I think this is your best one so far!”

He really loved it. Almost as much as I love him. 11 years with this stud is a blessing, and I pray that I get many more! He is my rock, and I could not do life without him!

We went to a wedding at the beach as part of our anniversary weekend getaway! Gotta love southern Cali!

The Myth, the Recipe…

Back to this little cheesecake recipe. Once more, it was made in my Vitamix Blender! I mean seriously, can it get any more easy to make delicious and decadent desserts??? I think not!

I actually made this before church on Sunday! I baked the crust first, and then added the creamy and delicious filling from my Vitamix, and then put in the freezer! That’s it! Easy Peasy!

Of course, later, I sliced up strawberries and added a little bit of sweetener and then added it to the top! Viola!

It’s really not a myth that you can make healthy, easy and super quick desserts! It’s the real deal, and it’s my jam!

I hope you enjoy this super simple dessert!

God Bless!
