Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake
One of my favorite things about summer is all the amazing fresh fruit we have access to. We grow a lot of our own fruit including cherries, apples, grapes, apricots, peaches, plum, and, of course strawberries.
We go through several pounds of strawberries each week. My kids love them, I love them, and they are just way too easy to eat.
We love making strawberry recipes, especially desserts. They add such a lovely natural sweetness and their flavor is irresistible. Today I’m sharing this amazing Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake. It’s loaded with strawberry flavor and is absolutely gorgeous. This cheesecake tastes like chocolate dipped strawberries – but better.
What You Need
No Bake Cheesecake Crust
It all starts with an easy OREO crust topped with ganache. I mean, really, is there any other way to start a cheesecake? The crust is simple: just some Oreos and butter is all you need.
That layer of chocolate ganache ensures that no filling seeps through the crust and does double duty by adding amazing deep chocolate flavor to this no bake cheesecake recipe.
No Bake Cheesecake Ingredients
Next I pile on the creamy no bake strawberry cheesecake filling and can I just say how utterly creamy this filling is? I used Challenge Cream Cheese for the most decadent cheesecake ever.
The filling is super easy to make with just five ingredients:
- heavy whipping cream
- cream cheese
- powdered sugar
- sour cream
- strawberry preserves or strawberry ice cream topping
You really need to allow for each layer to chill but most especially the filling. The cheesecake needs to get back to the consistency it was when it came out of the refrigerator so you can get nice clean slices.
How To Decorate A Cheesecake
Once the no bake cheesecake has chilled, it’s time to decorate. Here is where those fresh strawberries really come into play. Ruby red, juicy, and sweet, they are the perfect garnish for this this glorious dessert. I started with a ganache drizzle, because, why not?
And then I just had fun with the strawberries! I put strawberries slices around the edge of the strawberry cheesecake and then piled them high in the center. Super fun, super easy!
Decorate how ever you want or not at all. Totally up to you!
Finally, I ate…and ate….and ate. And it was good. Very, very good.
You guys! Just look how creamy this no bake cheesecake is!
The combination of strawberry and chocolate is so class and they go great together in this easy no bake cheesecake recipe.
Outrageously decadent, surprisingly easy, and oh so irresistible! Enjoy!
