Trust me on this one, they will rock your world. Lemon has to be my favorite flavor of the Candiquik cheesecakes, until I added blueberries to them. Think Lemon Meringue Blizzard from Dairy Queen…in cheesecake form!
This is truly a 15 minute dessert…no hidden prep work required, no heating the oven, nada.
Let’s talk cheesecake. Some cheesecakes can seem a little intimidating and not to mention, time consuming. This one that I am about to show you does not fall into either category. Have you made any of the cheesecakes I’ve shared? They are kind of a mix between a cream pie and a cheesecake. They are lighter than a lot of cheesecakes and (best part) require no baking.
While I was scrimmaging through old blog posts to find for today, I did a little happy dance when I came back across this one (aka Turtle NO BAKE Cheesecake). It’s so perfect. I didn’t dare choose a recipe that required your oven…I think the whole country is over 90 degrees this week month. Also, hello and welcome to all of the international friends that may be reading. I hope you’re staying cool, too!

Ok, maybe these aren’t sooo “personal” sized. Instead, you could grab 2 spoons and share - or not. They’re actually not all that much more than a large piece of pie.
You know what, you could probably even freeze these and pull out whenever the time is right. Or bring them to work! Hey, you have to be prepared for Mondays, mid-afternoons, and certain coworkers. What I’m saying is that these are (capital d)angerous…
I’ve been seeing more and more of these mason jars around - & they are being filled with all sorts of goodness. For example – just take a look at these little cheesecakes in a jar. Or Bakerella’s – YUM, or how about this one I found on pinterest. Swoon.
So go ahead, make these in advance, pull out when needed. What’s not to love?!
I used my super easy, no bake recipe for vanilla cream pie. Then I layered it with fresh strawberries and plump bluberries.
And the crust? No bake as well – I found myself digging all the way to the bottom to get a little bit of crust in each bite.
Next time – double crusting it. Yep, go ahead – add another layer of the graham crust in the middle! Genius.
