It's summer and the stores are bursting with fresh Cherries and Berries and who want's to turn that oven on anyway? This is the best season for a refreshing no bake cheesecake. No fuss and full on flavor. Here are the ingredients and steps to make this recipe!!!
I've made many a cheesecake in my day, I've set them in Cheesecake pans, mini tins and molds and they always turn out amazing. I've made Cheesecake with a lime jello top layer but this time, I added some Jello right into the cheesecake batter. The results are delicious!
