Zain’s Cheesecake Spread

I brought this mess of a dessert to a friend’s place for a party not so long ago.  She is so used to seeing my perfectly crafted desserts, that she was a little surprised at the site of this heaping plate of strawberry-raspberry coulis covered mush.

Her face was priceless.  She was like dude, are you serious?

Then she took a bite. A second later, she looked like she got shot in the a$$ by cupid himself.  I have had to make this dip for every one of her parties since.

Cheesecake lovers, this one’s for you.


¼ Cup Fat Free Cream Cheese (softened)

¾ Cup Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt

½ Tbsp Cacao Butter OR Coconut Butter

1. Bring a sauce pan with water to boil over low heat, add strawberry and raspberry jam and sweetener of your choice.  Simmer for 3-5 minutes then add fresh or frozen strawberries and raspberries.  Allow to cook for another 3-5 minutes on low heat, remove from heat and chill in fridge.

2. Meanwhile, mash all ingredients for cheesecake spread in a bowl until completely combined. You can use a food processor if you want as well.
