Here’s what you’ll need to make my easy no bake strawberry cheesecake:
We will need cream cheese that has been softened, sugar, sour cream, pure vanilla extract, whipped topping that is thawed out, a graham cracker crust, and some strawberries that have been hulled and cut up!
Like all of my delicious no bake recipes you won’t find anything tricky happening here. This is an easy recipe that is made with simple ingredients.
Strawberries are readily available year round for the most part but they’re extra delicious when they’re fresh and local in the summer. If you have a farmers market near you be sure to check it out, grab some fresh local strawberries and then give this recipe a try! It makes all the difference!
If you can’t strawberries fresh for whatever reason you can use frozen ones just be sure to thaw them and drain them really well or they’ll make your cheesecake very soggy. You could also serve them on the side with each slice if necessary!
Not a fan of strawberries?
Have no fear, you can use any kind of berries with this no bake cheesecake recipe. It’s so delicious and creamy it won’t matter what fruit you pair it with, it’ll go great.
I like to do blackberries and raspberries sometimes too! Blueberries are another great choice. Feel free to mix things up and make whatever kind of fruited cheesecake you like.
How to make a no bake strawberry cheesecake:
This is a two step recipe…that’s right, there’s only two steps in the whole recipe. Basically we’re combining all of the filling ingredients except for the strawberries and then adding them to our ready made crust. The strawberries get added at the end!
So first we beat the cream cheese until smooth and add in the sugar, sour cream, vanilla, and mix until combined. Fold in the whipped topping and then scrap the mixture into the crust.
Chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator for about 4 hours before topping with the strawberries and any extra filling. You can use a piping bag to make a nice design around the edge of the pie if there is leftover filling…or you can just eat it!
