Healthy Red, White & Blueberry Stuffed Strawberries Recipe
10 large strawberries
1/4 cup light/low-fat ricotta cheese
1 natural no-calorie sweetener packet (like Truvia), or HG Alternative below
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
30 small blueberries (about 1/3 cup)
Slice the stem ends off the strawberries, about 1/2 inch below the stem, revealing an opening in each berry. Use a narrow spoon to remove about half of the flesh inside each berry, allowing room for filling.
Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each strawberry, so the berries sit flat.
In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix until uniform.
Spoon ricotta mixture into a bottom corner of a plastic bag; snip off the tip of that corner to create a small hole, and squeeze the mixture into the strawberries.
Press 3 blueberries into the filling of each strawberry.
