Quick and easy, make ahead dessert. My favorite! It was sharred by an outstanding bakery in Portland, OR - JaCiva's


  1. Whip cream until stiff and set aside.
  2. Beat Cream cheese with the confectioners sugar and lime juice until fluffy, then fold in the whipped cream.
  3. Chill and serve topped with fresh sliced strawberries.
  4. Note: Once I forgot to get the limes at the store and added vanilla extract instead.
  5. We liked it just as well, maybe better.

I had a bunch of fresh strawberries yesterday, so went looking for a recipe & spotted this one. It was fabulous!! I used the vanilla as I didn't have any lime juice/limes on hand. Brings a whole new meaning to 'strawberries & cream.' I had the leftovers for breakfast this morning (I must confess, I ate most of it myself last night) & it was even better today!! Thanks for posting... it's a simple, delicious way to use up berries!! I think it would taste great with any fruit/berries.

Mary, I loved this dessert,I couldn't wait till strawberries came into the markets so I could try it,It was worth waiting for,I didn't have a lime so I tried it with the vanilla. Next time I will try the lime. Thanks so much, Darlene Summers

This is very, very good, perhaps sinfully good. I love that at the same time it tastes tart and sweet and rich. The lime flavour is wonderful. The store was out of strawberries so I opted for Kiwi and it did the trick just fine! The only thing I will change next time is that I will prepare dessert bowls of fruit and serve them with a nice big dollop of the cream cheese dessert. So, so good. Thanks for posting this recipe.
