No Bake Cheesecake Mousse Dessert

2 comments

Easy and  creamy this no-bake cheesecake dessert topped with  fresh berries. Serve these  in half pint wide mouth mason jars or other single serving baking dish.

Perfect easy dessert for anytime of the year, if fresh fruit is not available I use frozen berries or other seasonal fruit. For an alternate and simple topping I use  raspberry jam or a lemon curd.

Ginger snap cookies gives this dessert a little extra flavor zing.

  1. This looks and sounds utterly divine! And, I love that I’ve found your blog. You mention your tiny 1960’s kitchen. Do you have photos of it? Mine is just as small, but yours sounds more charming. Ha!

    • Hi Christina,

      I was planning on doing just that! I’m in the process of a little mini redo and when it’s complete I’ll share some before and after photos.
      Cheers,
      Sydney
