No bake fruit cheesecake is simple and delicious. It is by far one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made. The addition of the fruit makes it a touch healthier than most desserts, and it’s something the kids will enjoy. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
There are a few tips to making this yummy no bake fruit cheesecake. To begin with, original or strawberry cream cheese can be used. I always use the strawberry as it gives the dish additional fruity flavor. The sugar gives it a bit more sweetness, but if you’re diet conscious, you can leave it out. I whip up the cream, but Cool Whip or Reddi Whip can be used, as well. The Graham crust can be made from scratch or simply purchased from the grocery store. Any fruit cocktail can be used; homemade fruit cocktail is nice too. Just make sure it’s well strained or it will make the recipe too watery.
