Cheesecake has been around longer than you'd think. Some historians credit the first recipe to a Greek writer in 230 A.D. The dessert was reportedly such a staple, it was used to fuel ancient Olympic athletes. Then the Romans conquered Greece, modified the recipe and eventually shared it with the Europeans. Around 1872, Americans put their spin on the beloved dessert by adding cream cheese to the recipe. As for topping it with strawberries ... well, we don't know who started that trend. (Though we're really glad they did.) However, we do know 22 delicious new ways to serve up the timeless flavor pair. And we're pretty sure you'll love them all.

Now this is our idea of the breakfast of champions: a strawberry cheesecake smoothie. Did we mention that it’s roasted (the berries not the smoothie)? Plus, since the drink’s creamy cheesecake flavor comes from low-fat cottage cheese or yogurt, it’s also healthy. If you’re not too attached to the bright pink shade, you can make it even healthier by blending in a little spinach. We promise, it will taste just as delicious.
