Blueberry Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

I would never consider myself a mom that checks every label on our food and I am hardly an Organic Food mom BUT I would consider our family a concerned family when it comes to our daily meals and food options.  Have you tried reading the ingredients on the labels of some of the food you put in your grocery cart every week?  I challenge you to pick up what ever is closest to you right now, read the label.  Concerned yet?  Is it possible for you and your family to try to live unprocessed?  

My kids LOVE all things cheese and that is why I am thankful for products like Arla Cheese.  As we stated earlier, ingredients can be scary, hard to read and full of things that just do not make sense.  Arla gets it and I feel good about giving Jude and Teagan their delicious creamy cheese.

One way I have tried to incorporate the whole living unprocessed movement is by making easy snacks and side dishes using unprocessed Arla cheeses.  Check out these super easy strawberries that are stuffed with cream cheese.  A favorite treat of ours!

2.  Using a spoon, remove the green part of the strawberries and spoon out a bit of the strawberry to create a little pocket for the cream cheese spread

3.  Using a knife stuff some of the Arla Blueberry Cream Cheese Spread into the strawberry.  

4.  Place stuffed strawberries in refrigerator to set for a least 1 hour before enjoying.  Serve chilled!

Can you see why these are the perfect treat or snack for everyone?  And, you can totally get creative with this recipe.  Instead of blueberry cream cheese spread you could use Arla strawberry cream cheese spread or even plain cream cheese spread.

Our kids took the Arla challenge!

Arla challenged kids to draw out common ingredients we would find in dairy products such as rBST, Sorbic Acid, and Xanthan Gum. Yikes...what are those?  See what the kids came up with in this adorable video clip. We took the challenge and enjoyed our Blueberry Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries while we had some coloring fun.

Eating our yummy treats!  Love finding great treats that we can all agree on.

My kids decided to draw Sorbic Acid.  Kind of funny what they drew!  After we were done drawing our very inquisitive little man wanted to know what Sorbic Acid really was.  We did some research and decided we do not want any more "weird stuff" in our dairy products!*

  1. The concept of the ad is a good one. Everyone can relate to the unpronounceable ingredients list. The behind the scenes video gives good context to the ad. It seems like they put more effort into the video than I thought when I watched the ad alone. I initially thought it was just all CG.

  2. I loved the kids' drawings - great imaginations! It's good to know that Arla cheeses don't contain unnecessary processed ingredients.

  3. They look so good! We buy Arla cheese and cream cheese and my kids love the strawberry flavor. My favorite is Mediterranean Garden - SO GOOD!!
    I love your snack idea and we do get a lot of berries in the garden and need new ideas.

  5. I sent this recipe to my daughter, who's away in college, and she replied back that she wants to make this! She'll be home in a couple of weeks, so I have time to find Arla cream cheese, or, at the very least, a cream cheese that's similar. Looks so delicious!

  7. The little guy and I look forward to strawberry season. We usually dip them in sugar or eat them as is. I am almost certain thus cream cheese method will be our new favorite way to watch strawberries.

  10. This is such a wonderful snack idea. I love the idea of stuffing the fruits with yummy centers, it really encourages you to eat the fruit. My daughter could always use the extra nudge to eat that kind of stuff so this is perfect for her.
