Perfect summer series : strawberry cloud cheesecake

Strawberry cloud cheesecake

I might be slightly addicted to cheesecake, and when you’ll try this strawberry cloud cheesecake I’m sure you’ll be too. It’s so delicate, fluffy, rich and full of flavour ( now you now where the name is coming from)! And it’s so easy to make. After we went strawberry picking it was just logical to make this strawberry packed, quintessence of summer!

And did I mention that it’s a no bake dessert? Made with Mascarpone cheese? Yes, it is heavenly perfect. Yes, you do need to make one.

No bake strawberry cheesecake

Graham crackers crumbs
Melted butter

2 cups mascarpone
1 cup whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups fresh strawberries

No bake strawberry cheesecake

Prepare a graham crackers crust, and don’t bake it! In stead, put in in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Whip cream with sugar. Add slowly the mascarpone cheese. Whip it some more.
Then wash strawberries, and put 1/2 cup of them on the side ( for decoration). Crush the remaining strawberries in to a strawberry sauce ( I use my hand mixer). Then add it slowly to your whipped mascarpone, and mix it well.

Pour it over your crust, and put back in the fridge. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before putting strawberries on top.

If a French tart would fall in love with an American cheesecake then this no bake summer tart would be their baby. It has a sponge cake base and loads of fruits, just like French fruit tart, but instead of fancy and long to make pastry cream, it has this delicious, creamy, whipped cream cheese filling.

Every time we go to France I indulge in their fruit tarts, and every time the summer comes I feel like I need to make one on my own. But I am a busy lazy mom, so sometimes making the sponge cake and the pastry cream from scratch, when you have two kids who refuse to play alone, is a bit challenging! That’s why this simplified recipe is so great. By using a ready made cake base, you’re really saving time, and the whipped cream cheese filling is really fast to make. But overall it is a home made fruit dessert, so I can still feel like I’m feeding my family with fresh and healthy (almost) food!

So next time when you can’t make up your mind if what you want more is a cheesecake or a fruit tart, try this no bake summer fruit tart of mine, I’m sure you’ll love it!

1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries

Whip the cream with sugar, and when it’s really whipped well, add slowly cream cheese ( by a spoonful) and vanilla. Mix it together until really smooth and really fluffy.
