I have been making this super easy dessert every week for the past two months.  That is the honest truth.  It is utter perfection, sings Spring when touching your lips, not to mention it is so creamy and dreamy with every bite.  Can you tell how much I am in love with this super recipe for Individual No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake!

Individual No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

This recipe was inspired by my recipe for blackberry cheesecake pots, which is another favorite to serve during spring and summer months.  After spying baskets of fresh strawberries at the market I decided it was time to celebrate spring and create something sweet.  Something beyond a traditional strawberry shortcake.

I love the richness of cheesecake and this recipe does not disappoint.  I tried it with a crumble at the bottom as well as between layers, and was not happy with how soggy the crumble got.  Then I decided to just go for it and enjoy “lots” of cheesecake creaminess.  This recipe is slightly lemony and lightly sweet, just enough to really let the strawberries shine!

Enjoy!
