No Bake Cherry Cheesecake is my absolute go to dessert when I am craving something sweet. There’s just something about the contrast between the creamy, cheesy filling, the tart cherry toppings and the crunchy biscuit base.
How do you make no bake cherry cheesecake?
This particular cheesecake recipe that I’m sharing with you today has been handed down to me by my Mum who taught me how to make it when I was a girl.
The fabulous thing about this cheesecake is there is no need to bake it and there’s no need to add any sugar, making it a healthier alternative to those that comes with lashings of brown sugar.
Without the added sugar, I have no qualms about sharing this delicious dessert with my toddler who has developed a real sweet tooth over these past few months!
Can the topping be changed on this no bake cherry cheesecake?
I also love how versatile cheesecakes can be, I love adding peanuts to the base to give it an extra crunch and the toppings you can add to a cheesecake that’s been set are unlimited.
If I’m feeling like a fresh, light cheesecake, I like to add sliced fruit such as strawberries, or if I’m feeling a little bit naughty, I’ll coat it with lashings of chocolate sauce.
I love experimenting with my toppings this week and was asked to try some Fabbri products which are available from the Ciao Gusto Italian Deli at Ocado.
