No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake is an easy, luscious dessert loaded with fresh strawberry flavors. The buttery Oreo crust takes it over the top! 

Looking for more sweet ways to use cream cheese? Try this Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake which is perfect with tea or a cup of joe. My Cinnamon Cream Cheese Cookies are always a huge hit, same with this Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese that’s full of autumn flavors.

Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake is a lighter alternative to the baked version. I do love classic cheesecakes, but they tend to be dense and heavy. Also, I know that not all of us have fully-equipped kitchens.

This recipe means you can enjoy homemade cheesecake any time you want even without an oven!

The lovely thing about this no-baked version is that it’s very customizable, and I’ll be sharing a few ways to jazz it up later on. Fair warning— this No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake is highly addictive, so get ready for everyone to keep requesting it all the time!

What do you need to make No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake?

  • You’re going to need butter and Oreo crumbs for the crust.
  • For the cheesecake filling, prepare strawberries, mascarpone, and cream cheese, plus whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. 
  • You’ll also need water and unflavored gelatin which will help the cheesecake set.
  • Finally, you’ll need sugar and heavy whipping cream for the topping.

How to make the best No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

  • Combine melted butter and Oreo crumbs. Press onto your pan. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  • Bloom your gelatin.
  • Process the strawberries until smooth.
  • Make your cheesecake batter by combining mascarpone, cream cheese, and sugar.
  • Combine the gelatin and fruit mixture, then combine with the cheesecake batter.
  • Spread on top of the Oreo crust and chill for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Top with whipped cream. To make, whip your cold cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag, and pipe the top of your cheesecake with it.

What brand of cream cheese is best for cheesecake?

Different cheesecake brands vary wildly in texture and flavor. Some are on the sweet and creamy side, while others are tangy and thick. 

The best way to see which brand you like best is to simply try them out. Start with the brands that are easily available to you.

No matter what brand you choose, always get the cream cheese that comes in blocks. Never use the spreadable kind since it doesn’t have the ideal consistency for cheesecake.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes! You’ll be processing the fruit anyway, so frozen is fine. Unlike fresh, you don’t need to worry if they’re sweet enough as well since they’re always frozen at their sweetest. Be sure to thaw the package before using it.

How to bloom gelatin?

Get your cold water, and sprinkle the gelatin powder on top. Set aside for a minute or two to bloom. Combine, microwave for a half a minute, and whisk until the gelatin forms. 

Can you make it in advance?

Yes, and that’s one of the best things about this recipe! Once it firms up, just keep it in the fridge for a day or two until you’re ready to serve.

Recipe Tips:

  • Not a fan of Oreos? You can replace it with graham cracker crumbs.
  • Save some strawberry chunks for mixing into the batter.
  • No-bake cheesecakes should always be served chilled.
  • Customize this by using different fruits, such as mangoes, raspberries, blueberries, and cranberries.
