What ingredients do you need for this no-bake strawberry lemon cheesecake?
For cheesecake base, this is a classic biscuit base with melted sweet butter and dry biscuits (neutral to taste).
La creamy filling It is composed of fresh cheese (Philadelphia), Greek yogurt, liquid cream, gelatin, agave syrup (unrefined sugar) for sweetening, lemon (juice and zest).
To the grout and the decor, you will need strawberries: I opted for French gariguette strawberries, very tasty, perfect for this dessert. I added a touch of whole sugar and a little lemon.
How to prepare this strawberry lemon cheesecake?
We start by doing strawberry coulis, so that it can cool. We simply heat the cut strawberries, the whole sugar and the lemon so that it compotes. Then we mix and let cool.
To make the biscuit base, mix the dry biscuits and mix them with melted butter. All you have to do is pack this mixture into the bottom of a square mold (20x20cm) that you will have lined with baking paper to facilitate demolding. We place in the refrigerator for the rest.
To prepare the garnish, we first soften the gelatin in cold water. In a container, mix the cream cheese, agave syrup, lemon juice and zest. We melt the gelatin in a little cream and then add it to the mixture. All you have to do is add the Greek yogurt and then the whipped cream.
We pour this mixture on the biscuit base and smooth well. With a tablespoon we place several touches of coulis on top of the cheesecake and we trace of the spirals with a wooden pick so that the flavors and colors blend together a bit. Then refrigerate for at least 4 hours but overnight is recommended.
Just before serving, pour the rest of the coulis over the portions, and add strawberries in decoration. Be generous! You can also make this recipe in a small round mold if you prefer.
