Strawberry Cream Cheesecake

Strawberry Cream Cheesecake ~ creamy, refreshing and delicious! #StrawberryCheesecake #Desserts #ValentinesDesserts

Strawberry Cream Cheesecake is the perfect make-ahead dessert, although the fresh Strawberries on top should only be added right before serving.

I am still on a strawberry high, as you can see, but this time it is  the creamiest cream dessert I have had in a long time.

This Cheesecake is just that - delicious crust, with a creamy Cheesecake layer, followed by a Strawberry pudding and topped with whipped Cream and fresh Strawberries.

I would definitely recommend this as a Valentines Day dessert, or for that matter any special occasion. Heart sprinkles can be added for Valentines Day, tiny pink pearls for Mother's Day, or you can simply leave the Cheesecake with only the Strawberries as decoration.

Every year, as soon as fresh Strawberries hit our store shelves, this Creamy Cheesecake is one of the first desserts I make. Obviously I do not make the Cheesecake only on special occasions ! But my family loves it, and it is always welcome on our dessert menu.

The Strawberry Cream Cheesecake also has no strange or expensive ingredients and you can make it a day in advance, only leave the fresh Strawberries until you are ready to serve.

Strawberry Cream Cheesecake


200 g Biscuits, finely crushed  (Tennis or Graham Crackers)  ( 7 oz )
1/2 cup Butter, melted
250 g Cream Cheese, plain, softened    ( 8 oz )
3/4 cup Icing Sugar
1 cup Fresh Cream (whipping cream/double cream)
2 Boxes Strawberry Instant Pudding    ( 4 serving size boxes )
Milk, as per the instructions on the Pudding boxes  (but ONLY 3/4)
Fresh Strawberries, to decorate
Sprinkles, to decorate


1.) Line a 20 x 20cm ( 8 x 8 inch ) dish with baking paper - let the edges hang over for easy removal.
2.) Mix the Biscuit crumbs and the Butter - press into the bottom of the lined dish - chill for 20 minutes.
3.) Beat together the Cream Cheese and Icing Sugar - keep aside.
4.) Whisk the Fresh Cream until stiff peaks form - add half of the whipped cream to the Cream Cheese mixture - fold in gently.
5.) Spoon the Cream Cheese over the crust and make it level.
6.) Prepare the Instant Pudding as per the directions ( remember to only use 3/4 of the Milk required ) - leave to stand 3 minutes.
7.) Spoon the Pudding over the Cream Cheese and top with the remaining whipped Cream.
8.) Chill 6 hours in the refrigerator or until set.
9.) Decorate with Fresh Strawberries and Sprinkles - slice and serve.
