This No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is creamy, flavorful, and easy to whip up!
Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, guys! Can you believe it? It’s the unofficial start of summer, which means that a lot of fun in the sun will soon be coming our way. And along with the holiday weekend comes parties, get-togethers, and barbecues. And that’s one of my favorite things about summer…the food! Grilling burgers, eating pasta salads, and frozen drinks just scream warm weather to me. Are you the same way, too?
Along with the summer foods come the summer desserts. Fresh fruits and no-bake treats are the first dishes that pop into my mind. After all, I have lots of no-bake creations that I’ve shared with you, such as this and this. And it’s time for another one, friends! This No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is creamy, flavorful, and easy to whip up. And because they’re no-bake, that means there is no oven to turn on. And that’s a bonus in the summer when it’s 120 degrees out, right?
When making cheesecakes, I always reach for quality brand products. And when it comes to dairy, you can never be too safe.
So when I was thinking about what was needed for this No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake, I immediately reached for Dutch Farms cream cheese. They’re a fourth generation company with Dutch roots and have been based in Chicago since 1929. And since Dutch Farms is known for their quality dairy, I knew I made the right choice. Not only did I feel good about using their cream cheese, but I also stocked up on a bunch of other products that are my go-to kitchen staples, such as shredded cheese and yogurt.
This No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is not only a delicious dessert, but it’s also perfect for serving at parties or get-togethers. Because you can make individual portions, it means that everyone gets just the right amount of mouthwatering cheesecake-goodness. And let’s face it, mini foods always seem to taste better, right? The creamy cheesecake batter is the perfect balance between the tart berries and sweet crust. And instead of using graham crackers for the crust, I got a bit fancier and used some crushed vanilla wafers.
And like most of my recipes, this No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is a breeze to whip up! The hardest part is waiting for the cheesecake to chill before devouring. Although, if you’re like me and have no will power around tasty desserts, then feel free to indulge right away.
To start, you’ll want to crush some vanilla wafers into fine crumbs. I usually mix my crust with some butter, but I decided to go the simple route and just use the cookie crumbs. Spread that onto the bottom of your trifle glasses and refrigerate while you make the batter.
Next, you’ll want to whip some heavy cream until peaks form. Whisk together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Drizzle with the blackberries and your No-Bake Cheesecake is almost ready. Assemble the batter over the vanilla wafer crust, refrigerate, and in about an hour, your dessert is ready to be devoured.
Filled with a sweet cheesecake batter and chunks of blackberries on top of a cookie crust, this No-Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is the perfect sweet treat to satisfy your cravings!
