Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Chill: 1 hour


3 tbsp. powdered peanut butter

1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt

1/3 cup natural light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip or So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip! Light)

3 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature

2 tsp. creamy peanut butter

2 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Dash salt

15 frozen mini fillo shells (like the kind by Athens)

1/2 cup finely chopped freeze-dried strawberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine powdered peanut butter with 2 1/2 tbsp. water. Stir until uniform.

Add all remaining ingredients except fillo shells and freeze-dried strawberries. Mix until smooth and uniform.

Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until chilled.

Meanwhile, bake shells on a baking sheet until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. 

Just before serving, fold 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries into filling. Evenly distribute into the fillo shells. Top with remaining 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries.


HG Tip: If you’re not serving these the same day they’re made, store the baked fillo cups at room temp in a sealable container or bag, and refrigerate the filling in a sealed container.
