Easy Berry Cheesecake (No-Bake)

Today I am sharing a recipe for a simple, easy Berry Cheesecake which is also a no-bake. This is one of the most basic recipes for a Cheesecake of this kind and never flops.

I usually make desserts which need to be chilled overnight, because I might be busy the following day and would have no time to spend on making a dessert.

Or I’ll be trying out a new main meal recipe. I don’t know about you, but I often run into all kinds of trouble with new recipes, whether it is a recipe from the net, a magazine or usually something I think up.

That means wasting time on experimenting, adding ingredients, change ingredients and more, which normally leave me without time for a dessert.

Easy Berry Cheesecake (No-Bake)

This no-bake easy Berry Cheesecake can be made in a rectangular, round or square dish. I used Vanilla as flavoring, but you can use Lemon or any flavor which will go well with your Berry topping.

Think Strawberry if you have Strawberries piled on top ..

I had to use a packet of frozen Berries as the store only had fresh Strawberries in stock and I wanted a mixed Berry flavor.

Simply defrost the Berries ahead of time, drain well and dry on a paper towel otherwise the juices will run over your lovely white Cheesecake and spoil the look.

The mixture of Berries I used today, included Raspberries, Blueberries and Cranberries, which made a delicious combination.

*Note: You can also use your favorite Biscuit mixture for the crust as I know Tennis Biscuits are not available in all countries. Graham Crackers, sweetened with a little Sugar will work perfectly.
