I heard it’s National Cheesecake Day tomorrow.  I don’t normally follow the national food holidays, but I do love cheesecake, and I did happen to make a dip for you!  I do love cheesecake, but great big slices of it are too heavy for me, so I love mini cheesecake desserts, like my Mini Cheesecake Bites with Gingersnap Crust, and I also love incorporating cheesecake in small doses in my desserts, like my Espresso Cream Cheese Brownie Cupcakes and my Black Bottom Cupcakes {All Dressed Up}.  I could go on and on, but I won’t.  😉

You may have noticed that I’ve been using a lot of Greek yogurt lately.  OK, I always have, but definitely a bit more than usual.  Chobani asked me if I’d like them to send me some yogurt so that I could develop more recipes, and of course I responded with a resounding YES!  I absolutely love the stuff.  It’s been a few weeks and I’m about halfway through it.  I’m having a great time!  😀

I created my Fresh Key Lime Greek Yogurt Dip months ago, and I loved it so much, I wanted to create another flavor.  I think strawberry cream cheese is one of the best things ever, so I decided on doing a take on that.  I think the Greek yogurt cuts through all that richness perfectly.  It’s perfectly balanced, and the strawberries really give it a wonderful fresh berry flavor, and a beautiful pink hue.  🙂

The best part about this dip, is you can whip it up in minutes, and it’s fun for anyone to eat — kids and adults alike.  I love this dip, and it’s versatile as a snack, appetizer, or dessert.  You just can’t go wrong here.  Happy Cheesecake Day!  😉
