4 no-bake cheesecakes to whip up this weekend

By TASTE, 20 July 2017

Oh, the no-bake cheesecake! We could wax lyrical about their creamy, sweet and often tart fillings. They’re oh-so easy to make: simply mix together the ingredients, pop in the fridge and you’re good to go. Try not check on your cheesecake too much! A watched cheesecake never sets.

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.
