Strawberry Cream Cheese Flan

Strawberry Cream Cheese Flan

We are fortunate in the sense that Strawberries are always available in South-Africa. Throughout Winter, although a bit smaller, one could get Strawberries at most supermarkets and fruit and veg markets.

I used a store-bought Flan Base, the filling was quick to make and took only an hour to set.
This suited me just fine today, as I had some curtains to make and a few other bits and pieces for the kitchen and the laundry. There was also no need to cook today, because there were quite a bit of left-overs from yesterdays braai (BBQ). My kids are MIA again, therefore it was only Roy, Jacobus and myself to feed.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Flan

1 packet (40g) Strawberry Jello
150ml Boiling Water
1 Heaped TB Caster Sugar
100g (4 oz) Full-fat Cream Cheese, softened
175ml Plain (Greek) Yoghurt
20cm (7-8 inch) Store-bought Flan Base
Fresh Strawberries, sliced
2 TB Redcurrant Jelly

1.) Dissolve the Strawberry Jelly and the Caster Sugar in the Boiling Water – set aside to cool.
2.) Meanwhile beat the Cream Cheese and Yoghurt until smooth.
3.) Once the Jelly has cooled, beat  in with the Cream Cheese and Yoghurt – place in refrigerator for 5 – 10 minutes.
4.) Remove filling from the refrigerator and pour into the Flan Base – arrange the Strawberry slices on top.
5.) Heat the Redcurrant Jelly until melted and drizzle over the dessert.
6.) Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

Hope you enjoy this beautiful, delicious dessert!

  6. Yum! This looks delicious! I'm jealous that you have access to fresh, yummy strawberries year round. They are getting kind of mushy here in the Midwest.
