No Cook Strawberry Cheesecake

I enjoy cool desserts during hot weather. This No-Bake Strawberry dessert recipe it all the right flavor and texture notes from sweet, salty, creamy, and tangy. In addition, you can pile on the fresh berries and reduce the layer of cheesecake for a healthy alternative.


One of my favorite things about this dessert is you can prep it ahead of time and assemble it right before serving. All you need to do is keep each component separately. Store the crushed pretzels at room temp in an airtight container. Store the cheesecake filling, strawberries, and whipped cream in separate airtight containers in the fridge.

Additionally, you can make individual servings as shown. You can also form them in jars (great for picnics) or muffin tin. I recommend using liners for muffin tins because they’re hard to remove. You can serve in the liner or peel them off. The liners peel off easily if you chill the cheesecake long enough. Additionally, you can make it in one large bowl which is great for potlucks.


  • pretzels
  • butter
  • cream cheese
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • strawberries
  • vanilla
  • whipped cream

Strawberry Cheesecake


  • Use cream cheese bricks, not the cream cheese that comes in a tub.
  • Before you begin, make sure you have room in the refrigerator for the cheesecake to cool. If you’re doing them in a muffin tin, you’ll need, probably, an entire shelf for them.
  • You can make whipped cream or use Cool Whip brand. For, homemade whipped cream, simply whip heavy cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. There’s no need to add sugar. (The dessert will be sweet enough without sugar in the whipped cream.) Proceed with the recipe.
  • Depending on the size of the glasses, it may be easier to pipe the cheesecake mixture into them rather than spoon them in. You can use a large freezer bag and snip off the corner.
  • Again, depending on the size of the container you put the dessert in will determine how long they take to chill. For smaller shot glasses, it will take a couple of hours. For large glasses or one bowl, allow six hours to fully chill.


Yes! You can freeze this cheesecake after it has finished setting in the fridge. Chill your cheesecake for four hours, wrap it in plastic wrap or an airtight plastic bag and freeze for up to three months. To defrost your cheesecake, let it thaw in the fridge. Top with strawberry pie filling before serving.

  1. You mentioned at the end of the recipe it could be frozen but was that for the individual glasses or a regular cheesecake as it doesn’t say strawberries but cherry filling???
    “To defrost your cheesecake, let it thaw in the fridge. Top with cherry filling before serving.”

    Thank you as love the freezer option if applicable.

    1. Oh, goodness, that’s a typo. It should be top with strawberry pie filling. (I corrected it in the post) The individual and the large cheesecake can be frozen. I had in my mind a large cheesecake with I wrote that but small ones can too. If you have room in your freezer.😉
