Homemade Kiwi and Strawberry Cheesecake

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

This no bake creamy homemade kiwi and strawberry cheesecake is topped with the most beautiful fruits. It’s a stunning recipe to delight!

To me, cheesecakes are like cheating when it comes to making cakes. It’s a cake, but not like the other baked ones, it’s simpler, easier, and juicier.

I know it can be a bit intimidating to make these threats, but trust me, it’s super simple! Especially this one, that doesn’t even require you to bake anything.

Whenever I have cream cheese sitting in my fridge I think:

I could make a cheesecake today.

That’s exactly what I did, and I even had the idea of combining kiwi and strawberries on top and BOOM, I just made one of the most delicious recipes ever!

I call this a homemade kiwi and strawberry cheesecake because unlike the other cheesecake recipes around the web this is a simple dish that just require a few ingredients.

The crust is made simply with biscuits and butter, the filling is a mix of sugar, lemon juice and zests and cream cheese.

How to make a homemade Kiwi and Strawberry Cheesecake

  1. Grease a line an 8-inch loose-bottomed cake tin with baking parchment. Mix the crushed biscuits and the butter until evenly combined.
  2. With a straight-sided glass, press the crumbs evenly across the base of the tin, and place in the fridge to cool for 20 minutes.

  4. Dissolve the gelatine in milk as per the package instructions.
  5. Combine the gelatine milk with the hot filling mixture, and pour over the biscuit base. 
  6. Chill for 4 hours, or even better, overnight.
