Easy No-bake Cheesecake

Get this no-bake cheesecake recipe for a creamy, fine and not too sweet easy to make cheesecake! |
This Cheesecake Recipe is my own and one of the easiest and fastest one I have ever made, not to mention, my hubby´s favorite dessert!!! It has a very creamy and fine texture and is not so sweet. Additionally, the little salt in the crust makes for a perfect balance in taste.

You can have different toppings, like mixed fruits, strawberry sauce or filling, peaches or just anything that you like, but I like blueberry jelly sauce the best! You can also have it simply without any toppings at all.

This is also an ideal dessert for those who are on a Low-carb diet (South Beach, PII), just skip the crust and substitute sugar with artificial sweetener.

Some of the ingredients below are in German, since I am in Germany and these are what´s available here, but I also wrote the English equivalent.

I find it easier to crush the biscuits using a really deep bowl or a cup and a pestle (I use the one we have for making Caipirinha). Then just add the other ingredients in the same bowl or cup for mixing.

If you can not find butter biscuits, Graham crackers also are good to use for this recipe.

    1. Hi Jay Ann, Olive oil tends to leave a taste, unlike a more neutral vegetable oil. So it is entirely up to you if you are fine with that.
