No-Bake Cheesecake in a Glass

no-bake cheesecake in a glass

Are you looking for a dessert with minimum effort and maximum effect?

This no-bake cheesecake in a glass is super easy to make and best of all, there is no need to turn on the oven.

For the base, I used digestive biscuits but you can use hobnob, graham crackers or any sort of crumbly biscuits. 

To make the cheesecake filling I combined fat-free cream cheese, vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt, and whipped cream. If you replace the vanilla yogurt with natural yogurt add 1 tablespoon of sugar or honey.

Even though I used 0% fat Greek yogurt and fat-free cream cheese, I wouldn’t say it is a healthy dessert as whipping cream is really fattening. However, since one single portion is quite small (if you use small glasses ), I would think it’s still a nice sweet treat to have once in a while. Right?!?!

Instead of berries, you can also top the no-bake cheesecake with lemon curd, berry sauce or jam. Be creative!

It’s the perfect dessert when you are entertaining as you can make it ahead of time and stick it in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.

This no-bake cheesecake in a glass is so quick and easy and it’s one of those desserts that would never fail to impress your guests!
