Low Calorie, Low Carb Strawberry "Cheesecake"

Okay so it's not really cheesecake, but if you are a cheesecake fanatic (like my boyfriend) this is an amazing low calorie, low carbohydrate option that invokes all the same flavor profiles as a decadent New York cheesecake topped with strawberries. 

*12 strawberries *1 packet splenda (or half a teaspoon) *2 tablespoons marscapone
-- Just 200 Calories --
1. Slice strawberries in halves or quarters.
2. In a separate bowl add 1 packet splenda to 2 tables spoons of marscapone and mix.
3. Add strawberries and enjoy!


I think next time I may sweeten the marscapone and then just place the strawberries on top and not mix them together. This way I can choose how much cheese goes with each bite.


Nick and I got a new patio set from his grandparents last week and we love it! (I took my strawberries and marscapone out there this morning for these photos)  When I park my car and look up at our apartment and see the lovely wooden navy blue table and chairs I'm impressed with how "adult" we have become. I can't wait for it to warm up so I can enjoy my coffee outside in the morning or eat dinner alfresco with my love.
