No Bake Coconut Cheesecake

Ever since I’ve learned how to make cheesecake I haven’t stopped. It’s funny too because Sheena doesn’t really like cheesecake. Lately however I’ve been messing with different ways to make it so she can enjoy it. Between Oreo cupcakes that I’ve made and now this no bake cheesecake “parfait” or layer, I think she’s coming around.

What I personally enjoy about this recipe is that you can literally take it and flip it a bit. Instead of granola you can use crushed up graham crackers. You can even replace; the coconut milk with 1/3 cup of sour cream for that original cheesecake bite or replace your strawberries in the jam (compote, whatever) with different berries.

Try it out! Make it for a group of people, for yourself, a friend or bae. Let me know how you recreated it and made it your own.

YASSS! DO IT!

No Bake Coconut Cheesecake
Strawberry Jam
For Serving
  • granola of choice to put at the base of the cup
Instructions
  1. Take the cream cheese (room temp), coconut milk and condensed milk and mix them all together. Once blended, place in the fridge.
  2. While your cream cheese is cooling, take your diced strawberries and put them in a pot on medium heat, stirring.
  3. The strawberries will cook down (make sure not to burn) and you'll then stir in the water. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Stir in your sugar once you notice your mixture bubbling up and continue to stir on occasion while it starts to form shape.
  5. Once your compote/jam is the consistency you'd like, let it cool.
  6. In a stemless cup or mason jar place the granola at the base and layering the cheesecake mixture and jam on top. Then serve!
Recipe Notes
  • You can use 8 oz of cream cheese with a whole can of condensed milk if you'd like or instead of the coconut milk add a 1/3 cup of sour cream.
  • Instead of strawberries you can use any other berry that you'd prefer.
