Now I’ve never been one for baked cheesecakes. Don’t ask me why, I’ve just never really liked them. I think it’s something about the texture or the mouth feel, as they say. Meh, I don’t know, they’re just not for me. So when I stumbled upon this no-bake cheesecake recipe when I was 13 years old (good god was it really that long ago?!) I knew I’d found a winner. So much so that I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve made it! The best part though, it that is truly is the simplest and tastiest way to whip up a dessert. My Gluten Free No-Bake Lemon Berry Cheesecake is the perfect way to finish a meal on a high!
This no-bake lemon berry cheesecake has definitely become my go to cheesecake recipe. And if I’m quite frank my go to dessert! Need something to whip up for a dinner party, BBQ, or last minute luncheon!? This is it. It’s an easy, basic, continental lemon cheesecake that you really can mix with any seasonal fruit. I truly prefer it with strawberries and blueberries, but you could honestly top it with whatever you like! Piles of sliced kiwi fruit? Chunks of mango or even apricots, plums and peaches! They all work beautifully with the simple lemon flavour.
There is something about that zingy pop of lemon and sweet burst of fresh berries that really lends itself to summer lunches and balmy barbecue’s. So the minute the local berries hit the supermarket shelves I find a reason to make this cheesecake! It’s such a simple dessert, it really doesn’t require a lot of messing around. All I recommend is making it the night before you need it and letting it chill in the fridge. Then when it comes time to serve it, all you simply have to do is pull it out, pile on extra berries and drizzle with dark chocolate! Wollah! Your guests (or hell, just little old lonely you) will be wowed!
