Creating These No-Bake Cheesecake Cups

I saw this photo on foodgawker the other day and thought “mmmm that looks good!” Raspberries were on sale for 77 cents per container (practically a steal!) and I knew it was fate. I was going to make fresh Raspberry Cheesecake Pots for dessert.

Raspberries are a favorite. I would have them growing in my backyard if they didn’t tend to take over the whole area. Instead, I will settle for amazing deals like this, the farmer’s market, and going to our favorite U-Pick place for farm fresh organic berries (I just hope the U-Pick has a longer season this year than last!).

No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Pots are the perfect summertime dessert recipe. Delicious berries. Cold dessert. No turning on the oven.

I love the individual serving sizes because it makes for such a pretty presentation. I had a few issues with taking my photos for this recipe. Because they turned out so pretty, I just couldn’t stop snapping away.

These individual cheesecakes are perfect for the busy days of summer when you want something sweet and don’t want to spend a lot of time on it. I can’t wait to make these for friends and family while doing a little summer entertaining. YUM.

Now, if you’ll excuse me…there is one mini cheesecake cup left and I need to go eat it before someone else does!

Can I Use Another Berry for the Individual Cheesecakes?

You could really use any berry or fruit for this No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Pots recipe. Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries. Why stop there? How about Mango or Peach? Or maybe a combination of berries.

I think it would be beautiful to make a few batches of different no-bake cheesecake and layer them in tall skinny glasses. How pretty would layers of peach and blackberry cheesecake be?

That is the beauty of recipes like these. They are so easily adapted into something new once you have the basic formula down. And it is pretty basic. No hard to find ingredients or awkward techniques. Making the recipe took less time than taking the pictures.

What Can I Substitute for the Graham Crackers?

If you live in an area that doesn’t sell graham crackers, try using digestive biscuits or another lightly sweetened plain cookie instead.

How to Make No-Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Pots

Here’s an overview of how the mini cheesecake cups are made:

  1. Crush the graham crackers to create crumbs. Add melted butter, stir well to combine.
  2. Spread onto a baking sheet and toast at 350F until the crumbs start to brown.
  3. Process the cream cheese, sugar, cream, and vanilla in a food processor until smooth. Add half the raspberries and process until just crushed.
  4. Spoon half of the graham cracker crumbs into four 1/2 cup-capacity dishes, then layer on a few raspberries.
  5. Divide cheesecake mixture evenly between the dishes and top with the remaining graham cracker crumbs.
  6. Garnish with whipped cream, raspberries, and mint (if desired).
  7. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.

The above is simply a quick summary of this recipe. Check out the free printable card at the bottom of this post for all the detailed instructions.

Can I Prep This Recipe in Advance?

Yes! I think you’d be fine to make the individual cheesecakes up to 24 hours before you plan to serve them. I wouldn’t make them any further in advance than that, otherwise the graham crackers will become soggy.

Can I Make This Recipe Gluten-Free?

Yes, simply substitute your favorite gluten-free graham crackers.

Tips for Making Fresh Raspberry Cheesecake Cups

  • I found it hard to process the raspberries without completely pureeing them, so next time I will probably take the cream cheese out of the processor and use a mixer to stir/slightly beat in the berries.
  • I forgot to add the berries on the bottom layer after the graham cracker, so my layers were: cracker, cheesecake, berries, cracker, whipped cream, garnishes.
  • You might be able to use frozen berries to make this recipe, but you’d need to thaw and drain them first.

I found it hard to process the raspberries without completely pureeing them, so next time I will probably take the cream cheese out of the processor and use a mixer to stir/slightly beat in the berries. Also, I forgot to add the berries on the bottom layer after the graham cracker so my layers were: cracker, cheesecake, berries, cracker, whipped cream, garnishes.
