Introduction: Banana Cream Stuffed Strawberries

This is a very quick and easy dessert finger food. They are also great for an after dinner treat and they look elegant so they are also perfect for a party!

My kids love eating strawberries alone but on occasion I stuff them with banana cream cheese for an extra smile!

Step 1: Prepare Strawberries

Wash and dry 1 pound of whole strawberries leaving on the green tops.

Cut one side of the strawberry off and finely dice it. Set aside.

Once strawberries are cut in half carefully cut out the center. You can use a knife or a small melon baller.

Step 2: Make Filling

Banana Cream Cheese Filling

8 oz cream cheese - whipped or regular
1/2 ripe banana mashed
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 c. brown sugar
diced strawberry pieces

In a medium mixing bowl combine cream cheese, banana, vanilla and brown sugar. Stir until mixture is smooth and creamy. No lumps please!

Fold in strawberry pieces.

Step 3: Assembly

Drop a spoonful of banana cream cheese mixture into the center of the strawberries.

Amount will depend on the size of each strawberry. Be generous. There will be enough mixture to fill a 1 pound carton of strawberries.

Eat and enjoy!
