- Yield: 6" round cake 1x
- Category: Desserts
- Method: No-cook
- 1 1/4 cups cookie crumbs
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups cultured cream cheese
- 1 cup sugar (see notes for sugar-free alternatives)
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup cultured heavy cream
- 2 cups chopped fresh fruit
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Mix together cookie crumbs and butter in a bowl until well incorporated. Press into an 6″ spring-form cake pan or pie plate.
- Beat together the cheese, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable.
- Whip the cream separately, then whip it into the cheese mixture until smooth.
- Pour cream cheese mixture onto the prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.
- Mix the fruit with lemon juice. If it needs sweetening then add a bit of sugar.
- Feel free to make a cooked fruit sauce by mixing the fruit with 1 tbsp of chia seeds, then heat the mixture until it starts to bubble. Otherwise, serve with fresh fruit.
- Top the cheesecake with the fruit right before serving.
- Feel free to use kefir cheese or yogurt cheese instead of cream cheese. Just make sure that the cheese is firm by pressing out the whey.
- This works as a sugar-free cheesecake! Feel free to completely eliminate the sweetener or replace it with alternatives like date sugar, xylitol or stevia (affiliate links.) I recommend date sugar as the best sugar free alternative for this recipe because it will be able to thicken the cream, similar to white sugar.
- For a gluten free cheesecake use gluten free cookies or replace the cookie crumbs with almond meal with butter for an even healthier option.
- See the section above for four different flavour suggestions.
