Come Summer and we start craving for foods that cool us off and provide much needed relief from the heat!Fresh fruits,salads,ice-creams,cool desserts are always welcome!Recently, I received some delicious Walnuts from California Walnuts that I have been enjoying for my snack!Our Sunday Supper featuring ‘Summer Berries’ seemed like the perfect opportunity to use them since my Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes have a Walnut Crust!Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Wait till you taste it!Its out of this world delicious and just the perfect little bite for a sweet treat at any time!These couldn’t be easier and did you know they’re also secretly healthy?You’re very welcome. :) The process starts in the food processor when the walnuts are crushed to resemble crumbs and the butter and sugar are added into the mix.I love the Walnuts in the crust and they impart a rich deep flavor to it.The filling consists of Reduced Fat Cream Cheese and Greek Yoghurt that make these treats even more enjoyable without feeling guilty.The sweet juicy Strawberries just complete the look and give them a fresh sweet taste that makes you crave for more and more.A cute dessert perfect for these hot summer days!
