This refreshing dessert makes a beautiful presentation and tastes delicious! To cut a few calories, I use Splenda sugar substitute instead of sugar when preparing the cream cheese layer. --Ann Flores of Seneca, Kansas

"I ended up chopping up the strawberries and adding a bit of sugar, but with the cream cheese layer, it's sweet enough so you don't need to add sugar to the strawberries. I also sprinkled coconut over the top because we love coconut. It was a big hit for a dinner party."
