If you’re looking for a new, fresh twist on a classic strawberry cheesecake, look no further than this No-Bake Strawberry Jello Cheesecake. It’s a light, no-bake dessert recipe with a creamy filling and textured cookie crust.

It’s quite the showstopper, with plump strawberries visible in each slice. It’s the perfect recipe for spring, summer or romantic occasions.

To make it, you’ll need typical cheesecake ingredients like cookie crumbs, sour cream, cream cheese, and gelatin. The recipe also makes use of both fresh strawberries and strawberry puree and jello. You can also customize the recipe, so if you’re looking to change it up.


Tips For No-Bake Strawberry Jello Cheesecake

Feel free to use any cookies or crackers for the base. A few popular options include pretzels, Oreo cookies, vanilla wafers, or graham crackers.

Use full-fat cream cheese and sour cream for better results.

Use any of your favorite jello flavors: lemon, strawberry, lime, orange, peach, pineapple, or raspberry.

You can also turn this into a blueberry jello cheesecake. Use grape-flavored jello and whole blueberries (not frozen) instead of strawberries.

Prepare the strawberries properly by hulling them first. Use a strawberry huller, or a metal straw to do this easily.

Use an electric hand mixer if you want an extra smooth filling.

Use powdered sugar for a smooth filling. If you use granulated sugar, the filling might be grainy.

Serve the Strawberry Jello Cheesecake with a dollop of cool whip.


How To Store Strawberry Jello Cheesecake

Store the Strawberry Jello Cheesecake in the fridge for up to 5 days. Keep it in an airtight container, so that the cheesecake doesn’t pick up flavors from the fridge.
