Ingredients

250g chopped strawberries

250g fresh blueberries

2 tbsp caster sugar

70g butter

50g plain flour

30g chopped cashews

40g brown sugar

30g slivered almonds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (356ºF), and line your springform tin with canola oil and baking paper.
  2. Place the strawberries and blueberries evenly on the bottom layer of the pan, making sure to cover any gaps.
  3. Combine the butter, flour, brown sugar, cashews, and slivered almonds until you have a fine paste. Squeeze it in the palm of your hands, then cover the berries. Take any leftover almonds and cashews then sprinkle them over the top.
  4. Cook for 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the berries begin to ooze out. The crumble tastes just as good if it’s stored in the fridge overnight.

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe

This delicious no-bake strawberry cheesecake recipe is a healthier take on the traditional baked favorite. Make in summer for the ripest fresh strawberries, but you can also use frozen strawberries if necessary. For those with the spare time, it is always better to make your desserts at home, in order to monitor and control the sugar content, and restrict the addition of preservatives and additives that are commonly in store-bought dessert products.

Ingredients

Crust

11 graham crackers

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Filling

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened

2/3 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

8 strawberries, sliced, and extra for garnishing

4 oz. whipped cream or cool whip

Method

  1. Put graham crackers in a food processor and blend until they become crumbs. Stir through melter butter.
  2. While you can use a cake tin to make a single cake, we recommend using smaller pie tins or individual cups. Thinly cover the base and sides of the tins with the crumb mixture. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  3. Put cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and strawberries in a food processor and blend until smooth. Gently fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Remove the tins from refrigerator and fill evenly with filling.
  5. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. To speed up the process, put in the freezer for roughly half the time.
  6. When serving, garnish with strawberries and serve with vanilla ice-cream for an extra sweet treat.
