How to Make No-Bake Berry Cheesecake

  1. Add your yogurt, cottage cheese, and cheesecake JELLO mix into your bowl and either stir briskly until well combined, mix into a blender, or whip together using a hand mixer. If you don’t like the texture of cottage cheese, blending your cheesecake mixture will help make it smooth!
  2. Spoon your mixture into a mini cheesecake crust and smooth it out. There should be plenty of cheesecake for it to more than fill your crust.
  3. Top your mini cheesecake with whatever toppings you’d like. We love to use fresh or frozen berries for flavor and fiber, but there are tons of ways to personalize your cheesecake!

Swaps or Alternatives

The fun part about these cheesecakes is that you can make them in whatever flavor you’d like! The base of the greek yogurt and cottage cheese will stay the same, you’ll simply add whatever kind of pudding mix or mix in that you’d like!

Here are some ideas: 

  • Sugar-free chocolate pudding with strawberries on top
  • PB2 powder with chocolate chips on top
  • 2 Tablespoons of pumpkin puree and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
