These mini strawberry cheesecakes bites, made with fresh strawberries, are the best thing you’ll take a bite into. This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however all opinions expressed are my own.
I am completely in love with cheesecake. It’s my favorite dessert. We would always have it for the holidays or special occasions as a kid but I could never perfect the recipe as an adult until now.
The secret ingredient? Sour cream. I couldn’t believe it either. All these years I’ve been trying to perfect my recipe and all I was missing was some silly sour cream. Once I figured it out, I was able to perfect my recipe and make these amazing strawberry cheesecake bites which no one else in my house will eat because I’m the only person who likes cheesecake. Using my super simple graham cracker crust recipe as the base I was able to make these in small batches. These small batches of 12 or 24 is perfect because I can indulge in them for dessert or a mid day sweet treat.
You know what makes this cheesecake even better? Homegrown strawberries Fresh From Florida that I picked up in Publix. I love to buy fresh produce especially when I’m baking because the taste is so much better. Florida farmers make it easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year-round.

I hope you enjoy my recipe! If you want the Fresh from Florida taste and strawberries aren’t in season, you could buy your strawberries in season and freeze them to preserve them. I’ve also used blueberries or raspberries if I’m looking for fruits that are in season. Be sure to check out the Fresh from Florida site for easy how-to videos and healthy recipes.
