Low-Point Cheesecake-Filled Strawberries

These delectable cream-filled strawberries are the perfect bite-sized treat for any gathering. Made with only six ingredients, they're very easy to make but, unfortunately, quick to disappear. :)

Low-Point Cheesecake-Filled Strawberries
Ingredients:
- 1 1/2 lbs fresh strawberries
- Fresh blueberries
- 1, 8 oz. fat-free cream cheese, softened
- 3 Tbs powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Graham cracker crumbs
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Set aside. Remove stems from strawberries. Cut around the top of the strawberries and remove the insides with a paring knife (as much as you can). Fill piping bag (or Ziploc sandwich bag with the corner snipped off) with the cream cheese mixture. Fill strawberries with mixture, sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs on each strawberry, and place a blueberry on top. Enjoy right away or refrigerate (covered) overnight.
