Rich, creamy no-bake cheesecake that comes together in a flash in your blender or food processor. The cheesecake is blended with juicy strawberries then layered on toasted graham cracker crumbs, topped with more juicy strawberries, and a dollop of whipped cream with a strawberry on top. 

Today is National Cheesecake Day! I’ve joined together with fabulous food bloggers around the globe to help celebrate this fabulous dessert! Roxana from Roxana’s Home Baking organized the celebration and invited me to participate. I don’t think I’ve ever turned down a chance to eat cheesecake, so I was happy to join in the fun.

Easy no-bake strawberry cheesecake pots recipe from Barbara Bakes

Since it’s summer and life is busy, I decided to make an easy no-bake cheesecake recipe for National Cheesecake Day. Lately the strawberries at the market have been so sweet and juicy, I couldn’t resist making a strawberry version of Donna Hay’s Blackberry Cheesecake Pots that I posted several years ago.

I used my toaster oven to toast the graham cracker crumbs, but if you didn’t want to heat up the house, you could skip that step. You could also substitute crumbled shortbread cookies as the base. I thought about going to Trader Joe’s and buying their Lemon Cookie Thins, but never made it to the store, but I’ll have to try that next time.

You could easily pick up the ingredients at the market today and serve this as dessert tonight. It’s a delicious, easy way to celebrate National Cheesecake Day.
