Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert Shots for Two

It is another one of those wonderful days when meals do not require gray matter on my part. Everything is already prepped and a snap to put together. Dinner tonight will be Tuna Alfredo. Since that is already prepared, I tinkered around with more desserts this afternoon.

Hopefully, you have read my blogs about dessert shots here and here, oh, and here. Well, now you have another idea which uses those glorious strawberries that are so plentiful now.

Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert Shots

2 ounces cream cheese
2 Tablespoons sour cream
dash of lemon juice
3 whole strawberries, divided
1 Tablespoon DaVinci French Vanilla syrup
1/8 cup Splenda or equivalent sweetener
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
1 Tablespoon ground pecans

Soften cream cheese. Blend with sour cream, two strawberries, syrup, sweetener and lemon juice. (I used an immersion blender) Mix flax and pecans and lightly toast them. Slice the remaining strawberry into thin slices, reserving the slices with stem for garnish. Layer the dessert, alternating between pudding, nut mixture and strawberry slices. Garnish with a berry slice.

Remember, these are tiny glasses, note the size of the strawberry. It is a small to average berry. This is just enough to keep you from feeling deprived on low carb. Most of our carbs should be coming from vegetables. But, hey, let's enjoy life!
