How to Make a No Bake CheeseCake

how to make a no bake cheesecakeMaking a healthy no-bake cheesecake in a jar is a delicious and convenient way to enjoy a sweet treat,  this is the perfect nutritious and delicious dessert in a jar.  You can use any fruit from strawberries to passion fruit and mango. The best fruit will always be the one that is in season so you can adapt this recipe for each different season.



1  Cup of almonds or other nuts of your choice

1 Cup of Pitted Dates

Pinch of Sea Salt



A handful of berries of your choice  (anything from strawberries to blackberries)

2 cups Greek yoghurt (or non-dairy yoghurt for a vegan option)

8 oz (about 1 cup) low-fat cream cheese or dairy-free cream cheese

1/4 cup honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Prepare the Crust

In a food processor, blend the nuts, dates, and a pinch of salt until you get a sticky, crumbly mixture. Divide the mixture evenly among the jars and press it down gently to form the crust.

Make the Filling

In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt, cream cheese, honey (or maple syrup), and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined and smooth. Taste the mixture and adjust sweetness if needed by adding more honey or maple syrup.

Assemble the Cheesecake in Jars

Spoon the filling on top of the crust in each jar, leaving some space at the top. Smooth the top of the filling with a spoon or spatula.

Chill and Serve

Place the jars in the refrigerator and let them chill for at least 2-3 hours, or until the filling is set. Before serving, you can add a layer of fresh berries, sliced fruits, or a drizzle of honey on top for extra flavour and appeal.


Once the cheesecakes are chilled and set, they’re ready to be enjoyed. Eat them straight from the jar with a spoon, or if you prefer, you can carefully unmold them onto serving plates.


Feel free to customize the recipe by using different types of nuts for the crust, adjusting the sweetness level, or incorporating your favourite flavours (such as adding a touch of lemon zest to the filling).

If you’re making these cheesecakes ahead of time, you can keep them covered in the refrigerator for a day or two.


This no-bake cheesecake in a jar is a delightful and healthier dessert option. It’s rich in protein from Greek yoghurt, and the nuts and dates provide a natural source of sweetness. Enjoy your guilt-free treat!
