Pecan Crusted Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

I was making up a new recipe for a clean eating Strawberry Popsicle when I realized these were 21 day fix approved! I quickly took the rest of the blended goodness and turned it into this amazing little treat! This recipe was adapted from 100 days of real food. 

 The Pecan Crust is Salty and Nutty the perfect combination to the creamy Strawberry filling!

If you like you could always turn these into a Popsicle too! I left the pecan mixture off for the kids becasue Colin is so picky he would have turned his nose up in  a second if he saw those nuts! Thank goodness for 1 good eater! 

The kids gobbled up the pops for an easy afternoon snack, I loved that these were easily made in the blender with no fuss! I think if you used Oikos Tripple Zero Greek Yogurt you could reduce the Maple Syrup to 1/4 cup or even just 2 tablespoons depending on your preference. I will try this and update the blog when I do! With spring right around the corner, I am sure I'll be whipping these up more often!
