Okay, we confess: some of these recipes do require you to turn on the oven – but only for the crust! If you’re absolutely adamant on going 100% bake-free, use the Tennis Biscuit crust recipe in the first recipe below for the no-bake cheesecake of your choosing.
Otherwise, if you’re not adverse to a bit of baking, we highly recommend trying this coconut crust. It’s a fresh, nutty take on the standard cheesecake crust.
The toppings for all the recipes can be swopped out for the seasonal fruit of your choosing: try ClemenGolds, berries, cherries, Kiwi fruit or granadilla. Or, if you’re feeling particularly decadent, try lemon curd swirled in double cream yoghurt. Thank us later.
The real no-bake cheesecake
