The no-bake cheesecake is one of the most popular desserts and one that always succeeds throughout the year.
As we know that it is one of your favourites, this time, we bring you a recipe that will surely win you over. So we prepare the cheesecake in its fastest and creamiest version to serve in individual portions using little jars!
Perfect to surprise this Christmas or any other special occasion. They are one of our favourite desserts to give the best possible closure to any evening. You can decorate the jar with bows or take advantage of different jars with original designs, colours and shapes to give a unique touch to the presentation of the recipe.
As we mentioned, we have prepared the fastest and creamiest strawberry cheesecake. We do this without curd, gelatin or other thickening products. This allows us to speed up preparation and reduce rest time. As a result, a recipe with a texture more similar to yoghurt.
We add the essential cheese and combine it with creamy Greek yoghurt as a base. A mix of flavours will surprise you with a sweet touch that will contrast with the acid point that the macerated fruit offers us.
This version of cheesecake has become a new must-have and has slipped directly into our favourite dessert recipes.
Preparation time: We will only need 15 minutes to prepare this dessert.
Total time of the recipe (with rest): With 30 minutes of rest, enough! Although we always recommend you let it rest overnight to enjoy a better result in which the flavours intensify in their combination.
Keep in mind that the original cake has to rest once made between 6 and 8 hours minimum.
For the cheesecake:
- 2 Greek yoghurts
- 150 grams of natural cream cheese
- Four teaspoons of sugar
- Two teaspoons of vanilla sugar
- For the base:
- 12 cookies
- 50 grams of butter
- To macerate the fruit:
- 250 grams of strawberries
- Six teaspoons of lemon juice
- Two teaspoons of sugar
To make the base:
- Chop the biscuits in the food processor and grind them until you get a smooth and sandy texture.
- Melt the butter in the microwave and add to the chopper.
- Mix with the crushed cookies.
Cover the base of the jars with the cookie and press lightly to make it compact. Let rest in the fridge while you prepare the cheesecake.
Add the cheese spread, Greek yoghurt, sugar and vanilla sugar to the measuring jar of the mixer. Beat with the hand mixer to get a creamy texture. Fill the jars with the cheese mixture and let it rest for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
To macerate the fruit, add the strawberries to a bowl, sprinkle the sugar on top and water with the lemon juice. Stir and also let it rest for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
Spread the strawberries over the tarts.
Serve the strawberry cheesecake jars and enjoy the creamiest version of the classic cheesecake.
tips and tricks
The faster and creamier version:
Unlike the most popular ones, this cheesecake does not have a solid result, but its texture is creamy, like that of yoghurt.
Why? The answer lies in the absence of gelatin, curd or other gelling agents.
Without any element that causes the mixture to curdle, we save using the fire and waiting long hours for it to take effect. This way, we can enjoy these irresistible little jars with only 30 minutes of waiting.
Of course, we always recommend that you try it better from one day to the next. Once we have put the strawberries in each jar, let them rest overnight so that the cream absorbs their flavour and is truly unbeatable.
Customize the recipe!
You can make various combinations to make the recipe unique every time.
You can replace the biscuit at the base with soba, sponge cake, or even chopped nuts!
For the fruit, you can add strawberries, peaches, and bananas, depending on the season. You can also use the classic jam that accompanies the traditional recipe or replace it with honey. There are tons of possibilities!
