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

  1. No Bake Kiwi Cheesecake
    Am undecided about how this turned out, but i won’t blame the recipe because anyone that knows me knows i am not a baker of any desserts, no cakes, pies, cookies ect. My bestie can testify to this because when we were teenagers we attempted to bake some cookies. They turned out so hard (but they were not burnt) a neighbor hung them up in his garage as a type of souvenir i guess. We could not give even give them away. Fast forward nothing has changed with my inability to bake or cook desserts.

    Thats why i choose a no bake dessert, but the dessert deities were not looking down on me with favor. In my opinion the cheesecake mixture was a little too soft even after setting up in the refrigerator all day. The kiwi mixture on top was too firm. The only change i made to the cheesecake filling was using low fat cream cheese instead off full fat. If any of you bakers review the recipe link and recommend any changes to firm up the cheese cake filling a little more please share your expertise.
    Since i did not care for the kiwi topping i only put it on a few of the cheese cake bites. The others i topped with thinly sliced bananas, a homemade blueberrie reduction, and left several plain.

  4. Reading over this again, where did you get mini-cheese cake pans. And where did you get the kiwi jelly? Please email me at L dot A dot Brown at covet dot net.

  5. These look adorable! 🙂 Adding whipped cream is a great idea and the portion size is just perfect! The kiwi jelly makes it look so pretty!
