Fresh ripe berries are always an exciting part of summer!  So using them in a dessert recipe is something that I look forward to doing all year long.  The thing about doing so is that it can really limit you during the rest of the year.  So I decided that I wanted to make a flavorful Berry No Bake Cheesecake using jam.  That way I could get the punch of raspberry and blueberry but it could be made in the middle of December without worry.  Layering the Berry Cheesecake gives it an extra special touch that is simple to do but also impressive to serve.

Ingredients Needed

Golden Oreo Crust

  • Golden Oreos-The perfect base for this berry cheesecake topping.
  • Butter-Added for a bit of flavor and to keep the Oreo crumbs together.

Berry Cheesecake Filling

  • Cream Cheese-All good cheesecakes start with softened cream cheese and this recipe is no exception.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk-Adding sweetness and creaminess with one delicious ingredient.
  • Whipped Topping-A great way to get just a bit of sweet flavor with the body that the whipped topping adds.
  • Raspberry Jam-The perfect way to get great raspberry flavor easily.
  • Blueberry Jam-Using blueberry jam is great because most have little chunks of blueberries inside.

Toppings

  • Whipped Topping-A border of whipped topping on top of the cheesecake makes the perfect bed for the berries.
  • Fresh Raspberries-Added to the top for freshness and to keep with the raspberry flavor.
  • Fresh Blueberries-Placed on top of the cheesecake for a gorgeous blue color and blueberry flavor.

How to make Easy Berry No Bake Cheesecake

  1. Pulse the Golden Oreos into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. {If you don’t have a food processor or blender then add cookies to a zipper bag and crush with a rolling pin} Mix together Golden Oreo crumbs and melted butter, stir until crumbs are completely coated.  Pour crumbs into a lightly greased 9″ spring form pan and press into the bottom and partially up the sides of the pan.  Refrigerate the crust until the filling is prepared.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together, mixing until incorporated and smooth. Finally, add whipped topping to mixture and gently mix.
  3. Divide the filling into three bowls {about 2½ cups in each bowl}. Leave one bowl as is. Add raspberry jam to one of the bowls and blueberry jam to the other bowl.
  4. Mix the jam into the cheesecake filling gently {being sure to not deflate}.
  5. Add cheesecake mixture into prepared Golden Oreo crust. Begin by adding the raspberry jam cheesecake filling and spreading into an even layer.
  6. Top the raspberry jam filling with the plain cheesecake filling and spread out into an even layer.
  7. Finally, top that with the blueberry cheesecake filling and spread out into an even layer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours {overnight works best}.
  8. To serve, add whipped topping to a piping bag with a star tip {or a zipper bag} and pipe the whipped topping around the edge of the cheesecake. Go back and place fresh raspberries and blueberries around the edge of the cheesecake as desired.

Steps for making Easy Berry No Bake Cheesecake, by Top US dessert blog Practically Homemade

Tips for No Bake Cheesecake Success

  • Refrigerate the crust while you make the filling.  This helps the crust set up nicely without having to bake it.
  • Use room temperature {softened} cream cheese.  To get a creamy and smooth filling this step is so important.
  • Carefully stir the jam into the cheesecake filling.  That way the filling doesn’t deflate and you keep the good thick texture.
  • Use an offset spatula to get a nice level layer after each addition of cheesecake.
  • Be sure to refrigerate the no bake cheesecake for at least 2 hours {overnight for best results} so that it sets up nicely.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use a different crust?

You can absolutely use a different kind of crust for this Berry No Bake Cheesecake.  I love this Golden Oreo Crust but a traditional graham cracker crust or Vanilla Wafer would also be delicious.

If adding a chocolate element with the fruit is your jam then use an Oreo Crust or even a Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust.

Can I substitute other flavors of jam?

Yes, use whatever flavor of jam that you and your family love.  If you prefer blackberry, cherry or strawberry then go for it.  You could also skip the berries altogether and go for apricot or even peach!

What is the difference between a baked and no bake cheesecake?

The main difference between a baked and no bake cheesecake is obvious, one is baked in the oven and the other is not baked.  No bake cheesecakes also don’t contain eggs, whereas baked cheesecakes do.

This makes the texture of the two very different.  A baked cheesecake is very dense in texture while a no bake cheesecake is much lighter and almost mousse-like.

Can I freeze this Berry No Bake Cheesecake?

This Berry No Bake Cheesecake can be frozen for up to 3 months as long as it is wrapped well.  I would freeze it without the toppings and either defrost it before serving or serve partially frozen for a different texture.

Can I use fresh or frozen berries for the cheesecake filling instead of jam?

Fresh or frozen berries can be used in the cheesecake filling instead of jam but would have to be cooked down over the stove with some sugar in order to get the right taste and texture.

This No Pectin Strawberry Jam is a great way of making jam easily without any special equipment.  It would work great in this recipe.

How do I store a No Bake Berry Cheesecake?

The best way to store a No Bake Berry Cheesecake is in the refrigerator.  It will last for up to 4 days as long as it is in an airtight container.
