No bake strawberry cheesecake

This is a straight forward no bake cheesecake topped with a delicious strawberry coulis. You can make this in advance ready to enjoy every bite! My family thought it was a cheesecake I had bought, that is how delicious it was. Highly recommend you give this a try!

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 8-12 servings
  • Preparation time: 4 hours or best overnight
What you will need:

For the cheesecake
10 digestive biscuits, made into crumbs
100g unsalted butter, melted 
400g cream cheese
75g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
juice of half a lemon
200ml double cream
400g strawberries

For the strawberry coulis
400g strawberries
4 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp lemon juice

How to make:

1) Line with greaseproof paper a 20cm springform tin on the base and sides

2) Add the biscuit crumbs with the melted butter and mix till well combined. Place onto the base of your lined tin, and press down until you form an even compressed biscuit layer. Place into the fridge to chill

3) In a stand mixer, or in a bowl, add the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice and whisk until a smooth consistency

4) Add the double cream and whisk until well combined

5) Cut half the strawberries into small pieces and the other half slice lengthways. Line the edge of the tin with the sliced strawberries, and add the other chopped half into the cream cheese mixture. Fold well

6) Add the mixture over the biscuit base, pushing into the sides to go between the lined strawberries. Cover with cling film and put back into the fridge to chill

7) Meanwhile, make the strawberry coulis by chopping the strawberries and adding into a pot over medium heat. Add the sugar and keep mixing, pressing the strawberries to speed up the breaking down process. Add the vanilla extract and continue mixing until the strawberries disintegrate and soften

8) Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice. Strain through a sieve to ensure it is nice and smooth

9) Once the cheesecake is chilled, add the strawberry coulis over it and leave it for 4-5 hours or overnight until read to serve



This cheesecake is sooo yummy, you want to close your eyes and savour every bite! You may wish to top the cheesecake differently, whatever you decide - I hope you give it a go and enjoy :)
