Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
I know I’m sharing these amazing strawberries as a Valentine’s Day idea, but I’m already excited for how amazing these will be with some fresh June strawberries from the farmers market.
Don’t get me wrong, they’re amazing anytime of the year, but there’s just nothing like fresh farmers market strawberries, you know?
I’m really starting to realize how much I love no-bake desserts. I love how consistent the results are, and I can’t get over how easy making desserts can actually be! These stuffed strawberries were such a hit, and didn’t last long.
I’ve partnered up with Klarbrunn to bring you this incredibly easy no-bake keto dessert recipe. It’s perfect to enjoy with an ice cold can of their calorie free, unsweetened (but oh so delicious) Sparkling Strawberry Guava water! You can find out where to buy Klarbrunn here.
Can You Make Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Ahead of Time?
Definitely! This is a great recipe to make a day in advance. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container with plenty of space around each strawberry. The space is to ensure that the strawberries don’t mess up the cheesecake filling on the neighboring strawberries.
Can You Use Granulated Keto Sweetener Instead of Confectioners’ Keto Sweetener?
Unfortunately, no, you can’t. If you use regular granulated keto sweetener instead of keto powdered sugar the filling will have a really grainy texture.
Does the Cream Cheese Have to be Room Temperature?
Yep! It definitely does. It’s way too stiff to pipe if you start with cold cream cheese. If you start with room temperature cream cheese and it’s still too stiff to pipe, you could mix in a little bit of heavy cream.
Optional Alterations and Additions
One of my favorite additions to this is to sprinkle the tops with a little bit of ground cinnamon or ground nutmeg.
I’ve noticed that most of the non-keto versions of this recipe include a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs, and replacing that with the warming spices typically found in graham crackers is such a delicious healthy replacement.
If you want to dress it up a bit, you could add a fresh blueberry or two to the top. I also think these would be amazing dipped in melted sugar-free chocolate, or drizzled with some keto chocolate.
Here’s a fun tip. If you want an even easier and even healthier version of cheesecake stuffed strawberries, you can skip the cream cheese filling and just pipe in freshly whipped heavy whipping cream! I’ve tried it this way, and while it’s not super sweet, it’s really delicious if you like simple treats.
Gluten Free No-Bake Desserts
This recipe is naturally gluten free and doesn’t need any alterations.
Vegan Keto Desserts
To make this recipe either vegan or dairy-free, you’d need to substitute the cream cheese with vegan cream cheese.

- 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup Confectioners’ Swerve (72 grams)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 pound strawberries (washed and stems removed)
- Ground cinnamon (optional, for topping)
- Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment (or a hand mixer with a large bowl), mix the cream cheese, Confectioners’ Swerve, and pure vanilla extract on medium speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Transfer the filling to a piping bag.
- Core each strawberry, and pipe an even amount of the filling into each strawberry. Top with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon if desired.
The non-keto versions of this recipe tend to have a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs on top. Cinnamon is one of the key warming flavors in graham cracker crumbs, so I’ve replaced the crumbs with an optional cinnamon topping. Ground nutmeg would be great, too!
It’s so important that the cream cheese is room temperature when you start. If it’s not, it will be near impossible to pipe it out of the piping bag into the strawberries.
I used medium sized strawberries, because I prefer being able to have more pieces of a smaller dessert. They are a bit harder to core, but I think it’s worth it. A round metal ¼ teaspoon worked well for me for this job. If you use large strawberries, this will likely only make about 12 large stuffed strawberries.
