Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

I made these for a BBQ because they were easier then making a whole strawberry cheesecake, but you get the same taste. The bonus is they are bites so you don't feel as guilty.

2 packages light cream cheese
2 packages strawberries
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup agave nectar

Combine cream cheese, honey and agave nectar and set aside. In a food processor chop about a 1/2 cup of almonds. Pour onto a plate and spread out. Using a small paring knife cut a small circle around the stem of the strawberry. It should make a small, deep hole. To stuff strawberries you can either use a piping bag or a small spoon. Make sure you overfill just a little. Take stuffed strawberries and dip then into the chopped almonds. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate or serve.
