Please welcome back Rachael from Eazy Peazy Meals as she shares this tasty recipe!

How do you feel about summer? How do you feel about cheesecake? I am obsessed with all things lemon, in fact I made this crazy awesome Lemon Crepe Cake recently that took my breath away it was sooooo good. And cheesecake, well let’s just say that I think it is the epitome of perfection when it comes to desserts. I love it! But it is so time consuming. Hence the cheesecake egg roll! It has all of my favorite things, in a quick and easy to make form. These cheesecake egg rolls are stuffed with fresh strawberries and a lemon cheesecake filling, making them taste like summer, and they come together in minutes. And the lemon drizzle on top has stolen my heart.

ingredients for strawberry lemon egg rollsOne of the things I absolutely love about these strawberry cheesecake egg rolls is that they requires so few ingredients, and whip up so fast. I love all things Eazy Peazy, like this awesome Raspberry 7 UP punch, which has been very popular on my site lately. And like the punch, these egg rolls require very little to taste gourmet. Like seriously, restaurant quality here. One of those ingredients are the egg roll wrappers. You can use any kind you want. I buy Nasoya egg roll wrappers, you can find them in most grocery stores near the fresh produce. Usually in the same section you would buy fresh herbs in. I use them for everything and almost always have some on hand, so I was pretty excited to use them in a dessert recipe, as I usually make things like Shrimp and Veggie Egg Rolls.

Cheesecake egg rolls in processWhen filling an egg roll wrapper you set it on a diagonal. Then put the filling in the center, as you can see here. That way you can wet the edges, and then just grab the bottom corner, and tuck it under the filling, and fold in the sides and roll. You want your roll to be wrapped up nice and tight so no ingredients spill out while you are cooking.

Now you can enjoy!

How to make
Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls with Lemon Drizzle

Yield: 8 egg rolls
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
Cheesecake and strawberry filling stuffed inside an egg roll wrapper, fried, then drizzled with a fresh lemon glaze!


  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • 10 strawberries, cut into small pieces

Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 5 ounces lemon flavored Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Lemon Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice


  1. Cut strawberries into pieces and put aside.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl beat together the Greek yogurt, cream cheese, egg, sugar, and lemon juice.
  3. Preheat 2 inches of oil in a large heavy pot to 375°F.
  4. Lay an egg roll wrapper down, and put a heaping spoonful (about 1 to 2 tablespoons) of cheesecake mixture in center at a diagonal. Put a handful of strawberries on top. Using a wet finger, wet the edges of the egg roll wrapper and roll by folding over, tucking ends in, and rolling. (Egg roll wrapper package should include rolling instructions with images, use if needed)
  5. Place egg rolls in hot oil and fry, submersed, for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oil and put on paper towel to blot excess oil off.
  6. While egg rolls are cooking mix together the lemon juice and sugar for glaze. Drizzle the glaze over, and top with fresh strawberries and enjoy!

    I’m making these today, I CAN HARDLY WAIT! Can the egg rolls be served cold or should they be warm?
