Light and Healthy 20 Minutes No Bake Cheesecake

healthy cheesecake recipe

The Official Flag of the Holy Republic of Saturday, this is what this super quick cheesecake should be called. This is a quick to make, delicious and healthy desert. No baking required.

You will need:

  • crackers (for the base)
  • 100 g butter (you will mix it with the crushed crackers to make a biscuit dough)
  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 250 g fresh creamy cheese
  • flavourless gelatin
  • half a cup of sugar
  • blueberry jam

How to make the cheesecake:

  1. Crush the biscuits and mix well with the butter. Stick it on the bottom of a cake mold and refrigerate while you prepare the cheese.
  2. Mix the two types of cheese with the sugar and the gelatin (don’t use too much, just a spoon or two, to help keep the cheese rigid). Mix until the sugar has melted into the cheese.
  3. Add the cheese on top of the biscuit layer. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Anna from Froggyland suggested I added an extra layer of blueberry jam before adding the cheese. This is spectacular and you should listen to her as I did.
  4. Before serving spread blueberry jam on top. Be as generous or as stingy with it as you feel like.


  • If you have a sweet tooth double the quantity of sugar.
  • If you want the cheese cream to be softer add confectioner’s sugar.
  • You can add vanilla or lemon peel to the cheese mix if you want a cheesecake with a twist.
