My inspiration for these Berry Cream Cheese Chimichangas stems from the strawberry cheesecake chimichangas Applebees served years and years ago. That was my favorite dessert and it seems very few restaurants serve anything similar. Occasionally you will find a Mexican restaurant that will serve it with chocolate and caramel sauce, which is also very good, but I really wanted something with berries.
Mine isn’t quite as cheesecakey, I find actually that it resembles more of a cross between the strawberry cheesecake chimichanga from Applebees and the cheese filled crepes with strawberry sauce from IHOP.
I made mine lower carb and sugar free but that is entirely optional. To make it lower carb you simple swap the regular tortilla for a Mission low carb tortilla (tastes almost exactly the same) and use a sugar alternative for sugar. I used a combination of xylitol and truvia to sweeten mine. If you decide to go with xylitol, make sure you either use powdered xylitol, or dissolve the xylitol into the vanilla and lemon juice first. For the cinnamon sugar I blasted the cinnamon and xylitol in the ninja blender so it was finer. I also used sugar free whipped cream.
Let me tell you that both of my kids went nuts for these Berry Cream Cheese Chimichangas (as did I). It tasted so good they did not even care that it was sugar free. I’m not even convinced that they actually believe it was sugar free.
