I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.#GevaliaIcedCoffee
I have the perfect summertime snack for you guys today. Dressed up strawberries & the best drink to cool you off. Let’s do this.
Iced coffee is a bit symbolic for me. I love coffee year round, but iced coffee really means SUMMER to me. The first day in March (or April!) that the weather on my phone reads 50 degrees, I celebrate with my first iced coffee of the year. I open the windows, turn on peppy music, and get excited about longer days and suntans.
I usually hit the drive-thru, but these days I am loving these new Gevalia Iced Coffee with Almond Milk for on-the-go sipping. They are a power-house with nine grams of protein per single serve carton (love that as a busy mom!) and each flavor has just enough sweetness for my taste. Mocha, vanilla, caramel… I’ve tried them all, and you can’t go wrong.
Personally, I thought they were perfect for coffee date with girlfriends. To complement the coffee, I whipped up a batch of cheesecake-stuffed strawberries. So yummy & a fabulous pick-me-up for midday snacking.
Aren’t they cute?!
Truly, there is nothing better than a juicy strawberry in the Summer. I live for Summer produce.
Annnd ever since I discovered cream cheese as a cheesecake hack, I’ve wanted to use it everywhere.
Strawberries and cheesecake are a classic combo, but when I saw some Funfetti cake mix waiting patiently among my baking supplies, I knew what had to happen.
Funfetti cheesecake? WHY NOT. It’s Summer.
Side note: I highly recommend having Funfetti cake mix on hand. Also, sprinkles, hazelnut spread, Greek yogurt, and whipped topping. I constantly use these items on the fly.
Back to the business of stuffing strawberries.
Piping them in is such fun. Kids love pastry bags & tips. Don’t have any on hand? A sandwich baggie with a hole cut in the bottom corner works just as well.
Last step— sprinkle rainbow jimmies or Nonpareils on top. Really go nuts, make it a party. I love it when they get in all the little ridges.
The possibilities for these are endless. They are dressed up for tea with the ladies… but have a fun side perfect for playdates.
