You’re a few minutes away from the perfect party dish – my no bake strawberry cheesecake recipe is bursting with fresh strawberries and elegant charm.
Hi Bold Bakers!
I want to take advantage of fresh strawberries whiles they are in their peak season so I made my Big and Bold, No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake.
How to Make a No Bake Cheesecake
You don’t even need to turn on the oven for this no bake cheesecake. It’s such a simple dessert recipe that I made the whole thing from start to finish in my Food Processor in just under 20 minutes. Plus, it doesn’t contain gelatin or eggs. This Strawberry Cheesecake becomes firm by whipping together the cream cheese and cream, then letting it firm up and set over night.
This easy dessert recipe is a perfect delight for summer and great for parties and picnics. Never one to leave a cake naked, fresh strawberries and vibrant flowers make for an impressive presentation.
In Ireland we eat a lot of cheesecakes like this one. My Mum made many for us growing up, however she used to melt a tablet of strawberry or lemon jelly and mix it in. It’s still to this day one of my favorite desserts, jelly an’ all.
I used strawberries but you can use any flavors such as raspberries or lemons if you prefer.
Prepare this strawberry cheesecake up to 3 days in advance. You’ll be ready to go for that summer picnic or party.
By simply decorating your dessert with some lavender and baby’s breath, it will take it to a whole other level.
I saw a gorgeous Cheesecake decorated with flowers by ‘Call me Cupcake’ on Pinterest. I got the inspiration for the decoration from her. I adore Linda’s recipes and think you should definitely check out her blog.

You're a few minutes away from the perfect party dish - my no bake strawberry cheesecake recipe is bursting with fresh strawberries and elegant charm.
- 3 cups (9oz/255g) plain biscuits (graham crackers or digestive biscuits)
- 3/4 cup (6oz/170g) butter, melted
- 3 cups (15oz/426g) strawberries, hulled
- ⅓ Cup (2 ½ oz/71g) sugar
- 1 ½ cup (12oz/340ml) whipping cream
- 3 cups (24oz/675g) cream cheese
- Extra strawberries , baby's breath and lavender for decoration
- gelatin to set your cheesecake (see notes)
Blend the biscuits in a food processor until fine crumbs ground. Combine crumbs with melted butter. Cover the bottom of a 9 inch springform with the mixture and put in the fridge while preparing the filling.
Puree the strawberries and sugar in the food processor or blender.
Add in the cream cheese and blend until smooth.
Pour in the cream and continue blending until your mix has thickened up well.
Pour batter over the prepared crust, cover with plastic wrap and fridge overnight. (because the cheesecake does not contain gelatin it’s best left overnight to set and firm up)
Store the cheesecake for up to 3 days in the fridge. It also freezes well. Decorate with more lovely things on top to create an impressive dessert.

notes: Take two sheets of gelatin, or two teaspoons of gelatin or agar agar. Sponge the gelatin according to the pack, in a little cold water. When it is softened drain off the water. Then, if you have a microwave pop the gelatin in for about 10 secs, or until the gelatin has turned to liquid. Then, take a few tablespoons of the cream, warm it and combine with the gelatin. Start whipping up the cheesecake mixture, and as it is forming add the gel/cream mix. Then straight into the pan.
