Strawberry and Lime Cheesecake Bars

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



Before this little berry season of ours comes to an end (and they are no longer on sale), I really wanted to make something super delicious with strawberries. Now, Zach hates cheesecake. I KNOW! It’s crazy. I can’t even. I don’t even know. So anyway, I made something cheesecake-inspired anyway. I thought that by making these strawberry and lime cheesecake bars I’d be hitting two birds with one stone (I don’t know why I use this expression … it’s kind of sad when you really think about it … sad face). Strawberry and lime are two ingredients that I think are perfect in cheesecake AND perfect for May 5th (aka … Cinco de Mayo). They kind of taste like a sweet margarita, which come on, is just awesome. It’s an extremely simple recipe, with tons of flavor and texture. I paired these bars with one of my favorite brews at the moment. The great thing about Zach not loving cheesecake, is that there’s more for me! This may have been my reason for making them all along. Shh, let’s keep that between us. ;)




Beer Love: 
Beer: Upslope Brewing’s Belgian Style Pale Ale
Brewed By: Upslope Brewing
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
ABV: 7.5%
IBU: 30
Description: I don’t know about you, but when I think of “pale ale,” I think of light. I don’t know why, I just do. Although this particular pale ale has a lighter quality, it is anything but. It has quite the alcoholic kick! I love this Belgian style pale ale for these cheesecake bars for it’s fruity notes. This beer has quite a bit of fruitiness going on, both in aroma and initial taste. It pairs very well with lighter dishes, and it really enhances the strawberry and lime going on in these bars. This brew is a limited release, so if you can’t find it, try your favorite Belgian style pale ale. It’s a great summer beer all together, and you will be completely satisfied with the pairing!

  1. There are people who don’t like cheesecake!? How is this possible? If you need help finishing these I’ll gladly help. Love the strawberry lime combo, so summery and perfect for Cinco de Mayo! I’ll have to hunt for this beer too, my husband likes to try out local beers.

  2. That is INSANE that Zach doesn’t like cheesecake! What’s not to like? It’s cheese and cake, the best things in the world! Hahaha! But it probably works out best for you because now you get all these yummy bars to yourself : )
