No bake kiwi cheesecake

Cheesecake! You want it. Really really want it and then you think of all the extra workouts eating one slice or half a slice of it will entail and then you either eat it anyway and feel guilty or you don’t eat it and feel deprived of a decadent treat.

The mini No bake  Kiwi Cheesecake is indulgent yet the smaller size makes it a smart treat too.  These are not sugar free or low fat.  These are very much the real deal.  The smaller size makes it a perfect dessert if you are having many people over.  They are easy to make in advance &  spectacular to present.

I added some real kiwi jelly on top, a little bite of fruit within and kept the crust lighter.  I wanted to make a dessert that would make me feel deeply satisfied after just a couple of bites.  And this one does!

While searching for inspirations on a no bake cheese cake I came across the recipe for a perfect no bake cheesecake .  I loved the idea of adding in whipping cream to make it light, hence adapted the recipe to make the mini cheesecakes.

You will need a special pan to make these.  Here is what I used : Cheesecake pan

    It’s the first time I’ve ever attempted to make cheesecake and they were AWESOME!
    Easy to make and fail proof. Thank you for the fantastic recipe.

  3. Hi There – I’m planning on making these for Christmas and just want to check can I use foil cupcake liners instead of the cheesecake pan?

    • Hi Claire,

      If you are not planning to make them as cupcakes and serve them inside the liners then absolutely- yes. They won’t come cleanly out of a cup cake liner so I would not recommend serving them out of the liner. Hope this helps! and Enjoy!
