Fluffy no-bake white chocolate cheesecake. A rich dessert that’s delicious served with tangy raspberry coulis.
You will all know by now how much of fan I am of my no-bake treats on this blog. I always enjoy testing and creating different kinds of no-bake desserts, especially no-bake cheesecake recipes.
Now it’s officially spring it’s time to share some fresh fruity desserts and recipes.
I’m kicking off the season with this white chocolate cheesecake. Consisting of layers of buttery digestive biscuit base and creamy smooth white chocolate cheesecake. Each slice is served with a drizzle of homemade raspberry coulis which contrasts beautifully with the cheesecake.
We served this cheesecake for guests we had over the Easter weekend for a dinner party. It was requested I make a dessert for our cheesecake loving friends and this recipe certainly impressed.
Each slice cuts perfectly and holds its shape even without gelatine. You can serve the cheesecake with an assortment of mixed berries but I think the raspberry coulis and fresh raspberries really compliment the white chocolate.
300g or 20 digestive biscuits
140g unsalted butter
White Chocolate Cheesecake:
500g full-fat cream cheese, softened (I leave mine out at room temperature for about half an hour to soften)
300g white chocolate
300ml double cream
45g (3 tablespoons) icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
200g-250g (2 cups) fresh or frozen raspberries
1-2 tablespoons icing sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice or water
- To make the biscuit base: Break the digestives up into smaller pieces. Place in a ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin or place the biscuits in a food processor and process until they’re fine crumbs. Mix together with the melted butter. Press the biscuit crumbs into a 23cm springform cheesecake tin until compact and firm. Leave in the fridge whilst you make the cheesecake filling.
- To make the cheesecake filling: Melt the white chocolate over a bain-marie or in a heatproof bowl in the microwave in 20-second intervals. Leave to cool slightly.
- Beat together the softened cream cheese and the melted white chocolate until smooth.
- In a separate bowl whisk the cream, icing sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Fold the cream in two batches into the cream cheese mixture.
- Spread the cheesecake filling onto the prepared biscuit base and smooth over with a palette knife or spatula. Cover and leave to set in the fridge for at least 6-8 hours or preferably overnight.
- To make the raspberry coulis: Place the raspberries, icing sugar and lemon juice/water in a small saucepan. Heat gently and continue to cook until the raspberries break down and you’re left with a thick and glossy sauce. Take off the heat and pass the coulis through a fine mesh sieve into a clean bowl. Discard the seeds. Leave the sauce to cool before refrigerating.
- Serve the cheesecake with white chocolate shavings, the chilled raspberry coulis and some fresh raspberries. Cheesecake will store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
