You know what happens when a blogger buys a half flat of strawberries? Blog a series of posts about strawberry recipes. I’ve had fun coming up with these recipes, hoping they will actually taste good. It’s all about experimenting.
Experimenting – that’s what my new friend Angel told me yesterday that she was doing when she came up with a butter cream (at least that’s my name for it) for cornbread. She makes the cornbread in a round small pan and tops it with a walnut or pecan. I purchased one of these at a vintage shop called Sugar Shack. A tiny container filled with the butter cream came with the cornbread. When I bit into that warm cornbread spread with the cream, my oh my, it tasted incredu-licious! My sweet friend is a talented baker and makes fancies like wedding cakes, too. But I’ll stop on that note because I’ve invited her to guest blog for Kitchen Hospitality. That’s going to be a treat for all of us.
Back to my strawberry series, today’s Lemon and Strawberry Cheesecake Pudding was invented when I needed a quick-something-special-delight to bring to a Mother’s Day dinner I was invited to. If you’ve been keeping up with my recent strawberry recipes, you know how much I love lemon and strawberry puddings and flavors. It appears that I am hooked on this, but this time I used a box of lemon pudding mix with fresh strawberries and a carton of Strawberry Cream Cheese. See the final recipe below:
- One small box lemon pudding mix
- One pint fresh strawberries
- One carton Strawberry Cream Cheese
- Two large spoonfuls of Whipped Topping
- One small carton of Whipping Cream
- One cup of Silk Cashew Milk
- Mix lemon pudding mix, cream cheese, and whipping cream with hand mixer.
- Cut fresh strawberries in small pieces and add to pudding and whipping cream mixture.
- Add cashew milk to pudding mixture and blend well.
- Fold in whipped topping.
- Optional: Top with sliced strawberries.
This pudding also makes a good fruit dip. Enjoy with your favorite fruit or as a light pudding dessert.
