The mixed berry cheesecake is a fresh and delicious no-bake dessert made with a biscuit base, a creamy cheese and a delicate mixed berry topping. Perfect for a special occasion, a party or an anniversary, it is very impressive but simple to make.

You can also prepare it in advance and enjoy it in all its goodness several hours later; in this way you will give the various layers time to settle. Served at the end of a meal, or at the end of an important dinner, it will conquer even the most demanding guest.

The crumb base is made with the classic dry cookies, blended and mixed with melted butter, while the filling is based on mascarpone, spreadable cheese and fresh cream, for a final result with a creamy texture. The berry topping, with which the surface is finely garnished, will give the sweet freshness and a pleasant sour note.

Tips for the Best No-Bake Berry Cheesecake

If you like, you can garnish your cheesecake with mint leaves and chocolate chips.

The base can also be made with chocolate shortbread biscuits, while the filling with ricotta or Greek yogurt instead of mascarpone, for a lighter final result.

If you prefer, you can blend a part of the fruits, sift the cream and add it to the cream cheese.

For the topping, you can add strawberries, wild strawberries, but also cherries and sour cherries, or replace the berries with other fruit of your choice, also according to the season.

How to store Mixed Berry Cheesecake

The cheesecake with berries can be stored in the refrigerator, in a special airtight container, for 2-3 days; you can freeze it for 1 month.
