Creamy, velvety and completely delectable, this No Bake Black Raspberry Cheesecake is heavenly. Simple to make, it’s the perfect dessert for any occasion.
Mother Nature is really teasing us here in Utah. It was 60 degrees yesterday, definitely not typical February weather in Salt Lake. I’m sure in a few days it will be a blizzard, so I’ll enjoy every second of the sunshine and blue skies while it lasts.
The weather has definitely given me spring fever, so I made a Black Raspberry No Bake Cheesecake. After all, isn’t that what a person does when they’re sick of winter and ready for spring? Well, it’s what I do.
This no bake cheesecake is smooth, creamy and velvety, with just the perfect amount of sweetness and a hint of tang from the lemon juice. Oh and the Golden Oreo crust is completely fabulous!
This is so simple to make, it comes together in about 20 minutes. It does have to be refrigerated for several hours or overnight so make sure you plan ahead.
If you’ve got spring fever or the winter blues, this cheesecake is a definite cure-all for that, I promise.
You could easily swap out the black raspberry preserves for raspberry, blackberry or boysenberry. Any of those would be delicious!
