  • 1/2 cup fat-free cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Palm Sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves, no sugar added (I used Polaner All Fruit)
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup whole almonds
  • 4 dates, no sugar added
  • 8 Mini Dessert Dishes, 3-4 ounces


In a medium mixing bowl, add cream cheese, sugar, yogurt and lemon juice, beat with an electric mixer until smooth and sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.

In a small bowl, combine preserves and strawberries.

Add almonds to a food processor and pulse until a crumb consistency, being careful not to turn into flour. Add dates and pulse until combined.

Evenly divide 1/2 almond and date mixture among the dessert dishes. Top with 1/2 cheesecake & yogurt batter, spoon in 1/2 strawberry mixture, add one additional layer of each. Refrigerate 2 -3 hours before serving.

These desserts are perfect for preparing ahead of time and enjoying one a day to satisfy that sweet craving. This mini dessert can be placed in a freezer safe dish for enjoying at a later date.

    Cherish, Instead of coconut sugar, use Sucanat and use raisins in place of dates. However, the dates just add a touch of sweetness and the flavor is not prominent.

  • Skinny Ms. says:

    Bella, I would recommend a thick honey or maple syrup.

  • Kathy says:

    Set aside the health "claim" of coconut palm sugar, will regular table sugar (sucrose) work in this?

  • rachel says:

    Should I use plain greek yogurt or will vanilla work for this as well?

  • Sue says:

    Blueberries work great with this, too! And it is delicious!

  • anonymous says:

    22 grams of sugar! and what are the additives in the low fat indredients to make that taste better… I opt for regular plain yogurt, absolutely no preserves, shouldn't need the sugar with all the other ingredients… but I guess we are going for a very sweet tooth… if you need more sweet taste and flavour because your used to that then chop and freeze your fruit (anyfruit will do and take in out defrost… I am mortified that low fat products seem to be more important than sugars and artificial flavors which are the leading cause of chronic disease and obesity according to new more recent studies

  • louann says:

    is cream cheese clean? if not, what could substitute?

    • SkinnyMs says:

      Louann, Light cream cheese can be considered clean. A cleaner substitute would be our Whipped Topping. It's whipped coconut milk: You will not end up with the same dessert, though. The cream cheese makes the dessert taste more like cheese cake. With the whipped topping, you will end up with berries and whipped cream.
