Food Factor: Strawberry-Banana Cheesecake Wraps
by Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service
Whether you want a healthier dessert option for yourself or for the little ones who like to help you in the kitchen, these strawberry-banana cheesecake wraps are perfect! The fruit and whole-wheat tortillas are loaded with fiber and will keep everyone feeling satisfied far longer than a store-bought cookie. And the cream cheese mixture will make you feel like you’re indulging in cheesecake, without all the calories. Best of all, they are easy for kids to make themselves.
You can try other fruit combinations, too, like blueberry-banana. You could also add some peanut butter to the cream cheese mixture and add apple slices for the fruit. I love versatile recipes!
Strawberry-Banana Cheesecake Wraps
- 4-ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese
- 2 teaspoons sugar, optional
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 (8-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
- 2 cups strawberries, washed, thinly sliced
- 2 bananas, washed, thinly sliced
Wash hands with soap and water.
In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar (if desired), and vanilla extract.
Spread cream cheese mixture all the way to the edges of each tortilla.
Lay the strawberries in a single layer on top of the cream cheese. Top with banana slices.
Roll up tortilla, being careful to keep the filling inside the wrap. Set seam-side down.
Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Cut in half to serve.
