fruity cheesecake recipe, no bake
I love no bake cheesecake recipes like this fruits of the forest cheesecake. It's so simple to make.
The hardest part about making this fruity cheesecake is to wait for it to set. This process could take a while until your cheesecake hardens.
If you literally cannot wait to dig your spoon into the cheesecake, there are two ways you can get it to set faster.
First and foremost, stick it in the freezer for 15 minutes. This will encourage your cheesecake to solidify. Especially, this will also allow your jelly on top to set.
If you place the fruits of the forest cheesecake into the freezer prior to the fridge, it will reduce the setting time by roughly one third.
Otherwise, follow the recipe's instructions and let the cheesecake cool for approximately 3 hours.
Though let me tell you, any no bake cheesecake recipe is worth the wait.
Just take a look at my other stunning cheesecake creations:
- kinder Bueno cheesecake - one of my absolute favorite cheesecake recipes
- gin and tonic cheesecake - beware, this cheesecake is an adult-only dessert.
- chocolate orange cheesecake - one of the most classic combinations that's amazing all year round.

summer fruit cheesecake recipe
There are a couple of ways you can jazz up this recipe. First of all, you can incorporate a bit of lemon or lime zest into the cheese mix.
This will increase the level of acidity and it will in turn make your cheesecake more refreshing. Otherwise, you can use the remaining berries and blend them into a coulis.
Once done, fold the coulis into the cream cheese. Just take care, the color of your cheesecake will change.
If you wish to make your cheesecake a purplish color, then add more blueberries and blackberries. For a lighter / reddish tinted cheesecake, you should add more raspberries, strawberries, or red currants.
At best, you can also throw a couple of berries into the cream cheese mix for more varied textures. The choice is completely yours.
If you wish to maximize the flavor of a specific berry, then feel free to purchase additional berries of your choice and toss them in.
What's your favorite forest fruit? Mine would undoubtedly be raspberries. Just check out my delicious summery raspberry and lime cheesecake recipe. Irresistible!
what to do with leftover berries?

For instance, you can use the berries and make a steak recipe with a forest fruit sauce. Whatever you go for, I'm sure that you'll make the right choice. You can never go wrong with berries.
