Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

It’s here! It’s here! Strawberry picking is finally here in PA! It’s about a week or so later than usual, mainly because of the wacky weather we had for 2013. Every year for the past too many, Dad and I always go strawberry picking. One of the first things I ended up making was this Strawberry Cheesecake Dip. The idea has been on my mind for the past few months, and I finally have fresh strawberries to make it. Instead of turning the oven on in the 80+ degree weather, I made a lazy no-bake cheesecake in a bowl – cheesecake dip with both pureed and chopped strawberries in it.

Dad and I almost always go to Triple B Farms for our pick-your-own produce. However, because I moved three years ago, we have to plan around when I visit. Normally that would be Memorial Day weekend, but they weren’t ready this year. So instead, Dad visited me and we went to The Drying Shed. Here you bring your own container, check in at the weigh station, and off you go to the field where one of the workers assigns you a row. 30 minutes later, we came back with 5.57 pounds of strawberries.

At first glance, it seems like a lot of strawberries, but I’m already halfway through the basket. I already made strawberry sauce to top French toast, a strawberry rhubarb hazelnut crumble, and a semi-failed shortcake (I put too much batter in the pans). Then of course this very successful Strawberry Cheesecake Dip. You can eat it with graham crackers, fresh strawberries, pretzels, and/or a spoon. Spread it on top of your bagel or a slice of angel food cake. Or if you really want to be fancy, layer it into parfait glasses with cubes of cake (angel food, sponge, and pound cakes come to mind).

If you’re looking for a quick summer dessert for your next potluck or get together, you need to make this cheesecake dip because it takes no more than 30 minutes to make the dip (and an hour of chill time, but there’s no effort on your part for that) plus there is no need to turn on any heat, not even the stove. I think we can all agree that it doesn’t get better than that, right?

Serves: 2 cups
Ingredients
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup + 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • Graham crackers, for dipping
Instructions
  1. In a blender, puree 1 cup strawberries. Strain to remove seeds. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks form (when you pull the beaters straight up, peaks form but fall over). Add in 1 teaspoon powdered sugar then beat until stiff peaks form (peaks form and don't fall over).
  3. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and 1 cup powdered sugar until light and smooth, about 2-3 minute. Beat in the pureed strawberries until mixed thoroughly. Fold in the whipped cream then fold in the remaining strawberries. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

  1. I don’t remember picking berries as a child, but I did take my girls whenever there was an opportunity. In fact, when we lived in France, there was a farm about half an hour from our house where you could pick all kinds of produce. We would come home with baby zucchini and thin green beans and tomatoes, etc. We loved it! It doesn’t get any fresher than when you pick it yourself.

    Your strawberry dip looks wonderful, Carla, and I suspect that many in my household would just eat it with a spoon. :)

    • I’ve only ever picked fruit before, never veggies. There is a veggie farm I can do pick-your-own, but I havent made it there yet.

      Spoon or fingers. Your choice ;)

  2. My mind is reeling with what I could dip in here!

  3. Sadly I think strawberry picking season is almost over here. I went earlier in May. I’m always surprised how fast I pick way too much and end up going home and wondering what to do with it all. Love this no bake treat for the heat!

    • Yea, I think TN strawberries are ready a lot sooner than PA strawberries. You can always buy frozen berries and thaw completely before using.

  4. Oh yum! This looks delicious!

  5. That would be so good on a bagel!

  6. Carla,
    What refreshing dip. That was a lot of strawberries you picked.

  7. Omg yes to everything about this dip. Easy, no oven and freaking delicious: it’s the trifecta of what makes a perfect summer dessert. I see myself eating this with a spoon. I think that’s the proper way to do it.

  8. This makes me want to find a you-pick farm nearby! The dip looks amazing!

  9. How can it be I was just thinking about some type of strawberry spread, earlier today?! Great post and beautiful photos!

  10. I just love this dip. Fruit dips are the coolest thing in the world. I must try this one.

  11. It could be a hazard to get between me and a bowl of this dip.

  12. YUM! This looks fabulous

  13. Carla,
    My daughter just went strawberry picking–in our back yard!–and I have a bowl on the counter waiting for me.
    Love this idea!
    Thanks!

  14. Fantastic suggestion! I love strawberries, and this year I can’t complain: I don’t know what’s happening in my parents’ garden, but they have had strawberries all year, which is a first (and good, too)!

  15. I plan on making this for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party.It’s strawberry shortcake.Could you make this night before you plan to serve it or is it best to make the day of?
    Thanks!

    Hello from London! :)

    WooHoo! I can now make this, now that I have managed to convert the measures! lol…looks lush!

    Carla, will the dip solidify? if not, any suggestions how to…I’d like to make a cheesecake with it (to fit a 9in tin so would need more adjusting!) … can you help please?

    For now, I will make a loose cheesecakey base and have the dip on top, with strawberries mixed with a little jam (I think you call it ‘jello’?) in individual dessert glasses.

    Thank you x

  17. Is powdered sugar the same as icing sugar?
