Tips for making this No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

Since this recipe is so simple, there really are not a ton of other tips to add. BUT there is one that is super important to keep in mind.

Make certain that the cream cheese is at room temperature when you start to blend it with the other ingredients. This is because you want the middle mixture to be as smooth and creamy as possible. If it’s not at room temperature, there’s a chance that it’s going to have lumps.

Can this no bake cheesecake be frozen?

It sure can. Make it up entirely and just pop it in the freezer. This is a super simple way to have a delicious dessert on hand anytime the craving strikes. Just be certain to have an airtight lid on it so it doesn’t get freezer-burnt.

What are some other fun toppings to add to this pretzel crust cheesecake recipe?

Toppings are literally the best. If you have fresh cherries, those would be a great choice, too. And if you want to skip the fruit altogether, you could easily top with chocolate chips and drizzle with caramel sauce as well.

Because no matter what toppings you decide to use, the middle section of the cheesecake is going to taste good with anything that you choose.

Ingredient Prep

Since this recipe is so easy, all you really have to worry about prepping is the fresh fruit. Make certain to wash off the blueberries and the strawberries so that they’re clean and ready to go.

See how simple it can be to NOT have to actually bake a cheesecake? This recipe is a total breeze!
