Step into our kouzina and lets whip up a lucky-7 party!
Greek No-Bake Cheesecake with Fruit
KOUZINA TIP: Everything needs to be cold when making whipped cream, so chill your mixing bowl and beaters about 30 minutes before whipping the heavy cream.
TOTAL PREP TIME: 25 minutes plus chilling
SERVES: 8 to 10
1 cup blueberries, raspberries, and/or strawberries (some sliced, some whole), or fresh figs, quartered
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
9 ounces digestive biscuits or graham crackers, ground (about 1 1/4 cups)
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup cold heavy cream
16 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup (4 oz) 5% Greek yogurt
1/2 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons thyme honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1. In a bowl, stir together the fruit and sugar until combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use or overnight.
2. Make crust: Lightly grease a 9-inch springform pan or 8 to 10 muffin cups. In a bowl, mix together the biscuit crumbs and butter until combined well (there should be no dry crumbs). Press the crumbs firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan or divide among the cups, pressing firmly. Refrigerate until ready to fill.
3. Make filling: In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream on medium speed to stiff peaks; transfer to another bowl. In mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, yogurt, confectioners’ sugar, honey, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream until combined.
4. Pour the filling into the crust(s), smoothing top(s), and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight. Before serving, remove the sides of the springform pan (or peal off muffin cups), place cheesecake(s) on a serving platter, and top with fruit and their juices.
