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.

Ingredients:

Biscuit Base:

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

Raspberry Coulis:

200g-250g (2 cups) fresh or frozen raspberries

1-2 tablespoons icing sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice or water

Method:

  1. 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 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Beat together the softened cream cheese and the melted white chocolate until smooth.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Buttery digestive biscuit base followed by a layer of creamy vanilla cheesecake that’s speckled with a mixture of Oreo chunks and crumbs. Decorated with swirls of whipped cream and mini Oreos. This is one truly decadent dessert and is the perfect treat for any Oreo lover!

Recipe Rundown:

  • Biscuit Base – I went for a classic digestive biscuit base, but if you want you could swap the digestives for Oreos or any other of your favourite biscuits/cookies.
  • Easy No-Bake Cheesecake Filling – I’ve used my fail-proof no-bake cheesecake mix. It’s made using softened cream cheese, a little bit of icing sugar to sweeten and help the cheesecake set, whipped cream to lighten and give the cheesecake its gorgeous airy texture and also a touch of vanilla. And before I forget a whole load of crushed Oreos are incorporated too!
  • Decoration – For the finishing touches, I sprinkled even more crushed Oreos over the top and then decorated with whipped cream and mini Oreos. Decoration is optional, but I think it makes the dessert look extra special!

I’m the seriously the biggest fan of anything cookies and cream or Oreo related! If you’re as obsessed as I am, then you should head to your kitchen right now and make this!

The cheesecake looks super impressive, so it would be a great dessert to make if you’re entertaining because it can be made ahead of time.

Once you dig into a slice you will taste the crunchy buttery biscuit base, then the ultra creamy and fluffy vanilla Oreo cheesecake. It’s pure and utter heaven… 😉

In another mixing bowl whisk together the cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Fold the cream into the cream cheese mix. Finally fold through the crushed Oreo cookies.
