When I am craving dessert or something sweet, which is all the time, I crave cheesecake. ALL KINDS OF CHEESECAKE! I think it is the rich flavor of the cream cheese and how it goes with just about anything, sweet or savory, that pulls me in! I always eat too much of it and then immediately regret eating the whole cheesecake.
Who hasn’t started with a fork-full and then blinked, looked down, and the whole cake is gone? I hate having to give up sweets all together because I can’t control myself, so I started controlling the amount of dessert I have in front of me. Now I can have my cheesecake and eat it too, just in smaller portions. Tapas is my thing here so we are shrinking it down a bit.
One thing I notice that with so much cooking going on in my house, is that the oven heats up the kitchen too much. I often set off the smoke alarm because of the heat. I need something that I don’t have to use the oven for…
My dessert has to satisfy my sweet tooth, and during the summer, it has to be able to cool me down too. Following my #CheesecakeInstincts, I’m thinking about mixing my cheesecake with ice cream!
Even if I want to have cheesecake and ice cream, I don’t want all the calories. I know I can cut those down by cutting my portions, but I can also do it by using a healthy version of cheesecake. Luckily Fiber One has a new product! Cheesecake Bars that are only 150 calories and 5 gms of fiber. I think I am going to use these for my sandwich bites.
I like strawberry cheesecake and salted caramel and, lucky for me, they have both! I think I am going to stuff this with frozen yogurt instead of ice cream and maybe add some fruit. Healthier all the way around! I gonna drive on over to Publix with my coupons to gather my necessities.

The bars are the perfect shape to make the sandwiches, so I cut each one into 4 pieces. I have a silicone ice cube tray that I use all the time for my cookie dough, among other things. I put a teaspoon of yogurt in 6 squares. The other 6 squares, I add a 1/2 a raspberry and then the yogurt. Tap it down to make all the cubes even, and pop in the freezer.
A few hours later, I pop them out and add them between two pieces of the cheesecake bar. Mini frozen yogurt cheesecake sandwiches. Since I am using Greek yogurt and fresh fruit I feel good about the dessert, and I only used half the cheesecake bar for each sandwich. The other half I shared with my kids:)
