Units Scale


  • 1 1/4 cups cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  • 2 cups cream cheese
  • 1/4 to 1 cup sugar (see notes for sugar alternatives)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipping cream


  • 2 cups chopped fresh fruit
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Mix together cookie crumbs and butter in a bowl until well incorporated. Press into an 6″ spring-form cake pan or pie plate.
  2. Let the cheese warm up to room temperature before mixing. While store bought blocks of cream cheese work in this recipe, it’s easier to make with softer, homemade cream cheese. See the section above for a few options.
  3. I’ve tested this cake with as little as 1/4 cup of sugar. Using full, 1 cup for typical sweetness.
  4. Beat together the cheese, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable. 
  5. Whip the cream in a separate bowl, then whip it into the cheese mixture until everything is smooth.
  6. Pour cream cheese mixture onto the prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.
  7. Meanwhile, mix the fruit with lemon juice. If it needs sweetening then add a bit of sugar. Set the fruit aside to soften while the cheesecake firms up.
  8. Top the cheesecake with the fruit right before serving.


  • This works as a sugar-free cheesecake! Feel free to completely eliminate the sweetener or replace it with alternatives like xylitol or stevia
  • For a gluten-free cheesecake use gluten-free cookies or replace the cookie crumbs with almond meal for an even healthier option.
