No bake berry cheesecake

Berries! I go crazy for them! Whether we are talking about strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, huckleberries.. you will always find something with the -berry ending in my fridge. I had a look at my blog recipes and almost half of them contain berries. Funny huh? But I can’t help it. These seductively aromatic and delicate fruits can turn even a simple dessert into something spectacular.

Take for example this no bake cheesecake. Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts. Until now I always used canned cherries to make the topping sauce. But summer is berry season so this time I used a combination of fresh strawberries, blackberries and blueberries for the most delicious berry sauce. For the filling I added some plain Greek yogurt that makes this cheesecake lighter and healthier.

The tanginess of the yogurt and the sweetness of the berries will leave you begging for more. Light, fresh, easy and containing summer berries. What else can you ask for?

This is an easy and light version of a cheesecake served in a glass. In case you want to use a springform pan you will need to make a double batch and add 3-4 gelatin sheets in the cream cheese mixture.
