I'm admit it to anyone, while I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day I sure do love the desserts that go along with the holiday. I adore making cute little desserts and jump at any excuse to make them. Case in point, these delectable no bake passionfruit and chocolate cheesecakes. I may have made that annoying noise we all love to hate when I saw how cute these turned out to be, you know the noise I mean, "squee"! I know, it's annoying, but I really could not help myself.
I was chatting with Lisa from Produce Made Simple about what kind of recipe they would like me to make. They feature recipes using all the best fruit known to man. It's such a great source for recipes, some super healthy, others slightly indulgent. I've contributed to their website before. You may remember I made a Cantaloupe Breakfast Bowl last summer for them. It was a delightful recipes perfect for busy families who still love a great breakfast in the morning.
We chatted about passionfruit possibilities, there are so many great recipes you can make with it. The possibilities are endless. I knew the combination of chocolate and passionfruit was something that would work well for Valentine's Day, and beyond. The subtle exotic flavour of the passionfruit mixes so well with chocolate. It really pairs beautifully together. Since their website likes to focus on easy recipes using produce I opted for no bake cheesecakes.

This is a recipe anyone can make. I'm a busy mom so my speciality really is easy recipes. I have two kids and when they were in grade school and high school I ran ragged getting them to sports and activities. We live in a small town that is located in the middle of farm country. They call our town the hub of the county, and it really is. While I love small town life it meant my kids had to go to school in another town for French Immersion classes.
Needless to say I've put a ton of miles on my SUV, driving here, there, and everywhere over the years. Between sports, and spending time at the barn, I had little time to cook step heavy recipes. So I've always gravitated towards easy recipes. It's the best of both worlds. You get a home cooked meal as quickly as possible. Over the years I've learned you can have your cake and eat it too. Just make easy cake.
If you love cheesecakes as much as I do I highly recommend making this recipe. You will love it. You can adjust the ingredients to your own taste. Cutting back on the confectioners' sugar will make it less sweet but not as thick. It will not ruin the recipe to decrease that if you like. It's a recipe that can be adapted and modified quite easily. If you have any questions when making it just shoot me an email.
I hope you love these as much as we do. The thing I love about tiny desserts is you can trick yourself into thinking you're eating less. Even when you eat more than your fair share. Not that I've ever done that or anything. I mean, I would never eat more than my fair share. Okay, I'm totally lying. I eat more than my fair share far too often. It's okay though. I'm a big believer in living life and enjoying every single bite of it.
Let me know if you make these for your sweetheart. They will make anyone you love smile, I can guarantee you that. There's just something about cute desserts that makes people weak in the knees. Myself included.

I love the sweet/tart flavor of passionfruit, but I've never had it paired with chocolate. I bet it's a fabulous combo! These are so pretty too, I love the layers.
Thanks so much Faith. It's so good with chocolate, I was so pleased with the flavour.
Patricia @ Grab a Plate
These are so pretty - hard to believe they're easy to make! Love your attitude about having your (easy) cake and eating it, too! When you step back and look at things, isn't it amazing what we accomplish?! These are lovely and I'm pinning to give them a try 🙂
Thanks so much Patricia. I love making good use of my time. So I'm all about easy recipes most days. Thanks for pinning.
my husband is from a very small town - the kind of small where everyone knows you. being a city girl, I am envious in some ways...
I love anything passionfruit - heading over to see the recipe now!
It has it's good points, and bad points for sure. I tend to have days where I find it easier to shop in the city so I don't have to run into too many people I know. Ha. But on the plus side it's very comforting knowing the people around you.
Passionfruit rocks. I had such a hard time finding the variety I wanted though. The joys of small town life.
Chrisy @ Homemade Hooplah
Loving the flavor combo here - chocolate and passionfruit? So much yes!
Thanks Chrisy. I love these two together. It's a marriage made in heaven.
Heather | All Roads Lead to the Kitchen
These are definitely squee worthy! I love that squiggly layer - so beautiful. And those passionfruit are pretty darn gorgeous, as well.
Thanks so much Heather. Piping bags help when getting the filling into shot glasses. Especially with my bad eyesight. Ha.
Kimberly @ The Daring Gourmet
I looooooove passion fruit!! LOVE it!! I used to buy them all the time when I lived in England but since moving to the U.S. can't find them anywhere! At least not here in WA - what's up with that??! These cheesecakes look so scrumptious!
They are SO hard to find. This was not the variety I wanted but it was all we could find. We had to get creative and go to a speciality market.
Thanks so much Kimberly.
Erin @ Texanerin Baking
I like the desserts, too! I'll take the whole day as an excuse to spend time together with my husband and eat unhealthy stuff. Works for me. 😀 And these look amazing! I have to admit that I've never had passionfruit. I'll have to be on the lookout for them!
Downtime is crucial, people need to decompress more often. I think I've got it down pat these days. Ha.
Thanks so much. Don't worry, many people haven't had them. They're super hard to find. We were looking forever and these were the only ones we could find.
Kelly @ Nosh and Nourish
LOVE those little shot glasses for desserts -- perfect portions!
Thanks so much Kelly. I love shot glasses.
Renee - Kudos Kitchen
There is just something so special about a single serve parfait type dessert. These look absolutely gorgeous and I love the flavor combination you've chosen. I'm clicking over now to get the recipe.
There really is. I have such a weakness for cute food. Thanks so much Renee. I appreciate it.

What gorgeous layers! These mini desserts look amazing, and the combination of passionfruit and chocolate sounds like a perfect one.
Thanks so much Sarah. I love cute food, it's my weakness.
Dear Kim, what a beautiful and elegant treat. I could enjoy this every night. xo, Catherine
Thank you so much. I wish we could share some at a conference one day. Happy weekend.
Wow, what a flavour combo here. Love the little cheesecake shots.
Thanks so much Carolyn. I love desserts in shot glasses. It's so fun.
Lori @ RecipeGirl
These are the perfect little dessert bites- love that you served them in glasses. I have yet to try that!
Thanks so much Lori. I'm a sucker for desserts in shot glasses. It's become my go-to. I can't help myself, I love cute food.
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen
I have to admit that while I love passion fruit, I seldom do anything with it at home because it sorta freaks me out. These perfect cheesecakes are inspiring me to put my big girl pants on though and buy some!
It's a bit cumbersome to deal with. Sort of like pomegranate. It's seems like a nuisance but it's pretty easy to do. I say grab those big girl pants and have at it. That totally cracked me up by the way. Ha
Anna @ Crunchy Creamy Sweet
You make the best looking no-bake cheesecakes! I am totally swooning over the passion fruit and chocolate combo!
Awe, thanks Anna. I love making them. They make me happy.
