  • 3 tablespoons low fat cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced

  • 1 slice whole wheat pita bread 

  • 1 sprig fresh mint leaves 

  • Cooking spray 



  • In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the strawberries. Using a large fork, mash the berries as you stir to combine the mixture.

  • After cutting the pita bread into two portions, carefully open the pita pocket. Coat the inside of each pita pocket with half of the cream cheese mixture then add half of the remaining strawberries.

  • Over medium heat, warm a cast iron skillet or grill pan. Coat the skillet or pan with cooking spray. Place the filled pita pockets onto the skillet or pan, and grill both sides until they become golden (about 2 minutes per side). Garnish with mint and serve immediately.
