By now you probably realize I adore no bake cheesecake. Well, let’s be honest here, I love any kind of cheesecake. During the hot summer months my go to dessert is always some kind of no bake cheesecake.

Strawberry just happens to be one of our favourites. My daughter’s boyfriend, who we refer to as boytoy, loves strawberries so it’s something I like to make for him when we have a big dinner.

He made me laugh my head off the other day. I proudly held up this beautiful strawberry tart and declared I made it just for him, he laughed and told me I made it for the blog. Okay, busted, but I made it for both reasons. I love my blog and I adore my daughter’s boyfriend. If your daughter is going to date you want to set high standards. This young man meets them all.

So this one is for boytoy, even though I ate most of it. I shared the first day, the second day all bets were off. My bad!

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Tart

This No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Tart is super easy to make and perfect for summer. The base is crushed Nilla Wafers, the filling is a simple no bake cheesecake mixture, and the topping is macerated fresh strawberries.

Ingredients

    For the base:
  • 2 cups mini nilla wafers, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • For the filling:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • For the strawberry topping:
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Instructions

    For the base:
  • Crush the nilla wafers in your food processor until the are the texture of graham crumbs.
  • Add the sugar and melted butter and pulse until mixed thoroughly.
  • Spray a 14 inch rectangular quiche pan, with a removable bottom, generously with non stick spray. Then spread the nilla mixture into the bottom. Use the flat edge of a honey dripper to tamp down the crust. They work great for things like this.
  • Set the pan aside.
  • For the filling:
  • Place your mixing bowl, beater and measuring cup in the freezer for about 10 minutes to get them cold. Then pour your heavy cream into the cold measuring cup to measure 1/2 cup. Pour that into your cold mixer bowl, and add the sugar. Beat on low speed initially, then increase speed to high and mix until the heavy cream turns into fluffy whipping cream.
  • In a separate bowl whip the cream cheese and vanilla together until the cream cheese is smooth and soft.
  • Scrape the cream cheese mixture into the whipping cream and mix until combined.
  • Smooth this mixture over the nilla crust evenly. Place in the fridge for a minimum of an hour, preferably up to 4 hours.
  • For the strawberry topping:
  • Chop up the berries into small pieces, smaller than chunks but bigger than a dice. Place them in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle sugar over top of the berries, then mix well with a spoon.
  • Juice the orange over top of the berries, mix again with a spoon.
  • Place in the fridge to let them soften for about an hour. You can macerate them for up to 4 hours, but not longer than that.
  • After the berries are macerated and soft you should drain off the excess liquid. Then scoop the berries over top of the cream cheese filling of the tart.
  • You can serve immediately, or place in the fridge for about an hour. Any more than that and the berries will discolour the cream cheese.
  • Serve with a big old summer lovin' smile.

Of course it’s normal. I love this cheesecake, and I’ll shout it from the rooftops if need be. I can never get enough strawberry cheesecake in my life. I could eat it every day. Many people think I do. But I don’t. I take the occasional day off to eat other things. Not often, but occasionally.

So many recipes, so little time. All perfect for keeping your house cool in the summer, while keeping your belly happy too. I dig that no bake recipes free up my time for other things. My daughter is in University and is off for break from April until September. So if I can spend a little less time in the kitchen it means I can spend more time with her. Doing really important things. Like binge watching TV shows on Netflix.

Try this one out for your next family gathering. Make sure you invite me. We’re family, especially if there’s cheesecake involved.

Toodles and smoochies! xx

    I can’t offer you a piece of this (I need to make it first!) but I can offer you some chocolate espresso baked cheesecake that Mrs KR made the other day (no plans to put it on the blog soon, but eventually it’ll be there). I love cheesecake! This looks like it has tons of flavor, and not having to bake it is always a plus. Thanks for this.

    I haven’t made a no-bake cheesecake in years. I always think about it and then know I’ll eat the whole thing and have second thoughts. Maybe I should just make a small one with a lot less guilt. :) Looks wonderful!

  7. 7

    This is my kind of dessert!

  8. 8

    I definitely prefer no-bake desserts in the summer. My house gets so hot! Especially with no a/c! I’ll add this tart to my list of new desserts to try out :)

    This is just a glorious presentation for those strawberries. I feel like the cheesecake is the added bonus here.

    I would eat cheesecake forever and ever and ever. No one at home eats cheesecake, so it’s just me and my spoon. And speaking of spoon, I will just have at this tart. No question. I may not even bother breathing until I’m done.

  23. 23

    I also love all kinds of cheesecake myself!! Yours looks absolutely stunning and simple to make with just a handful of ingredients! Thanks for sharing!
