I like utilizing an almond-based cream cheese, however any dairy-free cream cheese will do.

As a substitute of macerating the contemporary strawberries in sugar, I made a decision to roast them. Roasting strawberries, and different fruits for that matter, with only a little bit of maple syrup, actually convey out the pure sweetness.

Plus, it offers the fruit a jammy consistency that may’t be beat.
