Ingredients

Units Scale

Crust

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

Filling

  • 2 cups cultured cream cheese (see above)
  • 1 cup sugar (see notes for sugar-free alternatives)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cultured heavy cream

Topping

  • 2 cups chopped fresh fruit
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  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. Beat together the cheese, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable.
  3. Whip the cream separately, then whip it into the cheese mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour cream cheese mixture onto the prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.
  5. Mix the fruit with lemon juice. If it needs sweetening then add a bit of sugar.
  6. 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.
  7. Top the cheesecake with the fruit right before serving.

Notes

  • 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 for an even healthier option.
  • See the section above for four different flavor suggestions.
