YOU GUYS. I cannot even handle how much I love this recipe. I made a raspberry version this summer after my sweet neighbors let me pick their bushes clean and I knew I had to re-visit it again and put it on the blog!

Oreos next to a pile of strawberries.

Since I am an ultra lazy cook, I usually avoid getting my food processor out at all costs. Hence the Oreos in a bag getting smashed with a rolling pin. Which works great too! Except when your kids are napping and you are getting all your aggressions out on said Oreos and you wake them up.

Not that I’ve ever done that.

Ahem.

Crushing Oreos in a plastic bag for no bake strawberry cheesecake.

I do add butter to the crust because this is no bake, remember, which means that the crust needs a little extra help to hold together well. As it chills, the butter will solidify and hold the crust together nicely.

I mean, this crust. Does it get better than crushed Oreos on the bottom of a cheesecake? I don’t’ think so. I press with my hands and then if it seems like it needs more, I’ll use a measuring cup to really get in there. I made this no bake strawberry cheesecake in a pie plate because I wanted EVERYONE to know they could make it, even if they don’t have a springform pan. If you have a springform pan, use it! No harm in that.

I developed this no-bake cheesecake filling recipe {which is THE ABSOLUTE BEST EVER} for these cute little No-Bake Mini Rasberry Cheesecake‘s I made for my friend Marlee’s blog: I Just Make Sandwiches {which you should totally go check out by the way – she’s a chef and makes everything totally doable for the home cook!}.

Squeezing lemon juice into cream cheese and powdered sugar mix.

It is creamy. And dreamy. And tart. And sweet. And smooth. And you’ll be lucky if you even get it in the filling before you want to eat it all. HA!

Smooth no bake strawberry cheesecake filling.

The way to ensure you get a smooth filling is by using room temperature cream cheese – like, mega room temp. Not just some that have the chill taken off. Leave those puppies on the counter for a few hours. And number two, beat it until smooth before adding any other ingredients.

Once it’s beaten and smooth, pour that luscious mixture into your crust. OOOOOOHHHHHHH BBBBBAAAAABBBBYYYYYY. {This is why my videos don’t have any real sounds in them.}

Smoothing out the filling for no bake strawberry cheesecake.

If you use a pie plate, the filling will be right up to the top. Which I love, because then the strawberries are the star of the show.

Um. So pretty. Are you dying to try this yet???????

You can do any design you like, this is what came to mind when I put it together but really the sky is the limit. Are you sick of these pretty strawberry pictures yet? No? Ok good. Me either.

Then comes the hard part: refrigerate.

I KNOW.

You guys know I hate refrigeration steps as much as the next guy {gal}. BUT. It is important here so the crust can set.

The longer you leave it in the fridge, the crisper these edges and cuts will be. So, oh hey, no surprise, I left it in for only an hour. Don’t be like me.

Ingredients

  • 25 Oreo cookies
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 16 ounces cream cheese 2 packs, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt see note
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice fresh squeezed, about 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries sliced, amount can be altered to your taste

Instructions

For the Crust

  1. Crush Oreos in a bag with a rolling pin or in a food processor until they are medium and fine crumbs. 

  2. Add melted butter and stir until combined. 

  3. Press into the bottom and slightly up the sides of a standard size pie plate or springform pan. 

  4. Refrigerate until ready to fill.  

For the Cheesecake Filling

  1. In a large bowl, beat or whisk the cream cheese until smooth. 

  2. Add the powdered sugar and beat or whisk until smooth. 

  3. Add the greek yogurt, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Beat or whisk until smooth. 

  4. Add the cream and whisk or beat on high until light and fluffy and medium peaks form about 2 minutes. 

For Assembly

  1. Pour the prepared filling into the prepared crust. Smooth out. 

  2. Place sliced strawberries on top in a circular design or however you desire. 

  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (see note), up to overnight (see note). 

Recipe Notes

You can use plain, vanilla, honey, or strawberry Greek yogurt. 

The longer the cheesecake is refrigerated before slicing, the crisper the sliced edges and crust will be. 

You can make this up to 24 hours in advance of when you need it. It will keep in the fridge {covered} for up to a week but after a few days, the strawberries start to bleed red onto the filling and dry out slightly.
