No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake, so easy!
So here’s my recipe for No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake and it’s a belter!
I realised recently that I didn’t have a cheesecake recipe on my website anywhere!! Shock horror! So as it’s strawberry season I decided to put that right with this one 🙂 You’re welcome 🙂
And let me tell you something it’s flipping delicious. It’s also quite a looker!
It’s very impressive and will look amazing on the dinner table, lunch table or at any BBQ or garden party!
Seasonal Strawberries perfect for cheesecakes
So what’s the difference between a baked and a no-bake cheesecake?
No gelatine required for this No Bake Easy Cheesecake
I believe that one of the best things with this recipe is there is no need at all to use gelatine (which also helps the vegetarians too)
You can of course include gelatine but the set would be much former and really who can be bothered with all that dissolving stuff and wondering if you cheesecake will be like rubber
Just make sure you whip the cream cheese mix until it’s very thick and leave it in the fridge over night and then you will have the perfect set cheesecake
No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe
Firstly you don’t even need to turn the oven on!
I make this cheesecake look super special by placing halved strawberries around the edge of the tin – look how pretty the final result is 🙂 IMPRESSIVE (whispers – but oh so easy)

Other Flavour Cheesecakes – will this recipe work with raspberries?
Other Strawberry Desserts
I have a few other strawberry Desserts too
My Danish Strawberry Tart is delicious – it contains marzipan and custard – go have a gander
We also have a Strawberry & White Chocolate Shortcake which is also delicious – especially if you love white chocolate
And why not have a strawberry tipple too, my Strawberry Daiquiri is life!!
The most important part for me is the cake tin you use to make this Strawberry Cheesecake in. Invest in a spring-form cake tin.
You will use it for a lot of things too – the one I have is 20cm / 8 inch and is perfect for about 8 small portions
This tin is great for this dessert as the strawberries cut around the outside make this dessert look super impressive!
So have a lovely Strawberry summer!

Easy Strawberry Cheesecake - No Bake
- 300 g Digestive Biscuits
- 100 g Butter melted
- 12 Strawberries Halved
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
- 600 g Full Fat soft cheese
- 100 g Icing Sugar
- 300 ml Double Cream
- 100g Strawberries hulled & diced
- 4 Strawberries sliced, for decoration
- In a food processor, crush your digestive biscuits and then stir in your melted butter, or pulse (you can easily use a strong plastic bag and a rolling pin to smash those digestives too)
- Next press the biscuit and butter mix into the bottom of your loose bottomed tin, using the back of a teaspoon to smooth over, pop in the fridge
- Next take your halved strawberries and carefully place a full circle of these around the tin, cut side facing outwards - pop back in the fridge
- Next put the soft cheese into a mixing bowl and use an electric whisk to whisk until fluffy, or a stand mixer
- Then add the icing sugar and gently whisk until smooth then add the vanilla bean paste
- Pour the cream in and whisk until the mix is very thick. Remove your biscuit base from the fridge, using a spoon carefully fill the tin with HALF the cream cheese mix making sure your strawberries stay in place
- Add a layer of chopped strawberries, then add the remaining half of the cheesecake mix on top, make sure you push the mix into the strawberry at the side - you do not want any holes or gaps
- Smooth over the top with a spoon and pop in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours to set (overnight is best)
- When you are ready to serve, remove the cheese cake from the fridge, release the spring and remove the tin
- Decorate with strawberries and serve!
