Doesn’t this No Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake Tart just say summer barbecue dessert?  Summertime desserts can be a challenge because , let’s face it.

In the blistering heat of a summer day folks are pretty reluctant to turn on the oven.

The solution, a creamy no bake white chocolate cheesecake tart! You can serve it with whatever the best of the summertime fruits and berries are at the time.

Add to that the fact that this dessert takes only about 20 minutes to prepare and it becomes even more appealing as a quick weekday dessert solution. It can be made a day in advance if your prefer, in fact it’s probably even better as that leaves plenty of time for the filling to set.

I usually use strawberries in this recipe but any fresh fruit or berries can be substituted with your fave.

Sliced summer stone fruits are also delicious on this dessert. Sweet and juicy peaches, plums or nectarines make for a pretty presentation too.

You can also top this dessert with your favorite fruit compote or jam during the off season months.

This one looks perfectly decked out as a 4th of July dessert. Using only fresh strawberries or raspberries would make it a terrific Canada Day dessert too!

No Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

This no bake white chocolate cheesecake is an ideal, quick & easy, luscious summertime dessert with no baking! Top with the best of the summer fruit season.


For the crust

  • 1 1/2 cups graham wafer crumbs
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 3 tbsp white sugar

For the no-bake cheesecake filling

  • 1 cup (8 oz/250 grams) cream cheese
  • 1 cup whipping cream, reserve 1 tbsp to melt white chocolate
  • 2 rounded tbsp icing sugar, powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • Fresh berries or summer fruit to garnish.


To make the crust

  1. Lightly grease a 10 or 11 inch fluted edge tart pan with a removable bottom.
  2. Mix together the graham crumbs, melted butter and sugar.
  3. Press into the bottom and sides of the prepared pan. Chill in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

To prepare the filling

  1. Soften the cream cheese by beating it with an electric mixer.
  2. Melt the white chocolate and 1 tbsp whipping cream together in a double boiler. Take it just to the point of melting and no further. You want this mixture as close to room temperature as possible. (I use a small glass bowl that fits over my smallest saucepan. The boiling water should not touch the bottom of the bowl.)
  3. In a clean bowl whip the cream, icing sugar and vanilla to firm peaks.
  4. Slowly beat in the softened cream cheese, a few spoonfuls at a time and whip well before folding in the melted white chocolate.
  5. Pour the filling into the prepared crust and spread evenly. Chill for several hours or overnight before garnishing with your favorite summer fruits or berries. Sliced peaches or sweet plums are also delicious toppings.


Total time does not include time to chill the cheesecake. Allow at least 2 hours to chill.

Made this tonight for some company tonight - used a store bought graham crust that I egg washed and baked for about 5 min and then let cool. The filling was delicious but was just a little soupy even after being in the fridge for 5 hours. I had a little trouble getting heavy peaks in my electric mixer for some reason with whipping cream - maybe heavy whipping cream would have worked better??

Will def be making again because it was delicious!

What's the fat content of your cream. That does tend to vary by location. Heavier cream should be best.

Could this be made in a regular pie dish?

Here's a tip to help you melt chocolate. Microwave it at 50% power. I find I can melt. 270 gram package of chocolate chips in three minutes with no burning or thickening. Good luck with the tip.

There's a big difference in microwaves which is why I always say to use a double boiler. I'd suggest doing it at intervals of 30 seconds to determine what's best for your microwave. As it begins to melt, check and stir every few seconds.

This is just gorgeous, and I love the suggestion to swap stone fruits like peaches. Such a quick and easy solution (no oven required!) for all those summer cook-outs! Totally impressive yet so simple! :D Pinning for sure!
