In a small bowl, mash the strawberries with a fork. Stir in sugar to taste and the lemon juice and zest; set aside. In another small bowl, beat the cream cheese until soft and smooth. Add the strawberry mixture and stir until combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until needed. Makes about 1 cup.
