Ingredients

  • 1 cup quartered strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 5-6 graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

Prep: 1. Heat oven to 350 and coat an 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick spray. 2. Hull and quarter strawberries. 3. Place about 5-6 graham crackers in a plastic bag and smash into crumbs with a heavy jar or skillet. 4. Juice lemon. Make: 1. In a small saucepan pan combine strawberries and 3 tablespoons sugar (or sweetener of choice) over medium heat, bring to a gentle simmer. 2. Meanwhile, mix together graham cracker crumbs and butter with a fork and press into bottom of prepared pan. 3. Using an electric mixer, gently beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in yogurt, egg whites, lemon juice, flour, and 1 tablespoon sugar. Pour over graham cracker crust. 4. When strawberries are simmering smash them with a fork and allow to cook until they are slightly thickened and look like jam. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. 5. Drop spoonfuls of strawberries over surface of filling. Using a knife, swirl strawberries through filling to create marble effect. 6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until center is almost set.

Notes

You can use any seasonal fruit in place of the strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are some of our favorites.
