We’ve had some unusually cool weather recently but hot and humid is on its way back soon. Try these no-bake cheesecakes for a nice treat without having to turn your oven or stove on! These are also a great way to showcase and enjoy delicious summer fruits like peaches, strawberries, blueberries…you get the idea!
No-Bake Peach Lemonade Cheesecakes
slightly adapted from My Baking Addiction
makes 6-8 individual servings or one 9″ pie
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped fruit – I used peaches
What To Do
In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Evenly divide the crumbs between 6 individual serving dishes and press into the bottoms of the dishes to form a crust layer. Place serving dishes into the refrigerator while you prepare the cheesecake.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese for 2-3 minutes.
Add in sweetened condensed milk mix until smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula to ensure the cream cheese is fully incorporated.
Add in lemon juice and vanilla and beat for an additional 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy. Fold in fruit.
Evenly spoon mixture into prepared serving dishes, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Before serving, top with whipped cream, fruit and lemon slices.
I used peaches because that’s what I had. I’d like to try this with other fruits too.
I used about 2.5 tablespoons of crust mixture for each serving dish. I guess it depends on how big your dishes are.
I would like more lemon flavor so next time I will add some lemon zest to the cheesecake batter.
I did pipe on the whipped cream but you certainly can spoon it on and spread it around. I was just feeling fancy.
Some Photos Along the Way
These would be great for a summer party or just to fancy up your family dinner. All without breaking a sweat.
Happy Friday to you all – have a great weekend!
