My little girl loves strawberries and blueberries, so I decided that I would attempt to create a recipe for a very berries no-bake cheesecake. I had also recently redeemed a food processor, so I thought I could put it to the test.
To be honest, I was hesitant to share this recipe because I wasn’t too happy with the result. I got my husband to try the product and surprisingly, he said he liked this berries one better than the Oreo one, which is quite the opposite of how I feel.
So I figured, while I may not entirely fancy this recipe, there are other people who will like it, which is why I decided that I will share it after all.
Other than icing sugar, I didn’t add any artificial flavouring, so the taste of this cake largely depends on the batch of berries that you get.
So here goes, the recipe for my second attempt at creating a no-bake recipe, my Very Berries cheesecake:
14 digestive biscuits
100g strawberries (puréed)
50g blueberries (puréed)
750g cream cheese (at room temperature)
125g unsalted butter (soft)
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Alternatively, put the biscuits into a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin or by hand.
Mix butter with the biscuits until they are thoroughly and evenly mixed..
How the cake is decorated the cake depends on what an individual will like. For the first time, I decided to pipe some designs on the cake.
I mixed 250 grams of cream cheese with 1/4 cup of icing sugar and put the mixture into my newly-bought decorating syringe.
Again, I didn’t add any artificial flavouring, so the taste of the cake largely depends on the berries that are used in the cake.
The weekend is near, so this simple no-bake cake can be a fun activity to do with kids too. 🙂
