No - Bake Strawberry Cheesecake in a glass

This recipe is my entry for the event "Shhh!!! Cooking Secretly" challenge conducted by Mayuri Patel of Mayuri's Jikoni.   For the month of January, I have paired with Sharanya Pallanisshami of "Sara's Tasty Buds" and the ingredient given by her is Strawberry and cheese.

I have used both the ingredients and prepared a soft, silky & delicious, no-bake strawberry cheese cake.


This creamy no-bake cheesecake served with fresh fruit sauce in individual dishes is perfect for parties and get together. It is easy to make this desert with only few ingredients.

You can try this recipe also in spring foam pan(gelatin or agar agar is must to hold the shape) or shot according to your creativity / convenience. 

It is suitable to relish for any special occasions. 

Do prepare and share with your loved ones!
