Ingredients

10 slice(s)

Base

  • 220g shortbread biscuits, broken
  • 80g Butter, cubed

Filling

  • 500g strawberries
  • 395g tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 500g Cream Cheese, Cubed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 heaped tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Gelatin powder
  • 1/2 cup water

Recipe's preparation

    Base
  1. 1. Place biscuits into TM bowl. Blitz on speed 5 for 20 seconds or until finely crumbed.

     

    2. Add butter, and blitz again on speed 5 for 10 seconds or until the mixture resembles wet sand.

     

    3. Press the biscuit and butter mixture into the base of a springform tin and refrigerate until required.

     

    4. Wipe the TM bowl with some paper towel to remove any remaining crumbs before proceeding with the filling.

     

  2. Filling
  3. 5. Place the water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin powder over the water surface. Leave undisturbed for the gelatin to 'bloom' while you proceed with the rest of the filling.

     

    6. Place the strawberries (or other fruit of your choice) into the TM bowl and blitz on speed 7 for 30 seconds, or until completely blended.

     

    7. OPTIONAL: You may wish to strain your fruit mixture to remove seeds before returning it to the TM bowl. This would be especially necessary if you have chosen to use raspberries, blackberries or passionfruit in place of the strawberries, If not straining, proceed staight to step 8.

     

    8. Add the sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, lemon juice and icing sugar to the bowl with the fruit mixture and blitz on speed 7 for one minute.

     

    9. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and then turn the machine on to speed 5 and remove the measuring cup. Slowly add the gelatin mixture through the MC hole while the machine is running.

     

    10. Once the gelatin is addded, turn up to speed 7 for another 20 seconds.

     

    11. Pour the filling over the prepared base and refrigerate for at least 4 hours prior to serving.

Tip

You can make this cheesecake with almost any fruit of your choosing (except for pineapple or kiwifruit which will stop the cheesecake from setting).

If you use a fruit with a lot of seeds, ensure you strain the fruit mix at Step 7. For a passionfruit cheesecake you could save some seeds to stir in on reverse for 5 seconds before pouring the filling over the base.

Top the cheesecake with fresh berries to serve.

    Was a bit worried after reading reviews but worked perfectly using 5 gelatin leaves soaked in cold water according to packet then stir into warmed lemon juice in saucepan..
    Only issue is slightly too sweet but still delish!

    Wish I had read the reviews before I started this! Mine did not set either and I tried with both cold water and with hot water!!! It tastes great, but the minute you take it out of the fridge it starts to 'melt'!!! Not good!

  • Did it work with the boiling

    Submitted by Mcfadgenclan on 17. October 2016 - 12:33.

    Did it work with the boiling water? I have surplus strawberries I want to use but I don't want to waste them. I was going to follow another user tip of 3 teaspoons of gelatin and boiling water?

  • I tried it for the first time

    Submitted by Mamalia71 on 12. October 2016 - 10:30.

    I tried it for the first time and it was a flop.  After some research I think the water needs to be boiled water not cold.  Trying again today...fingers crossed!

  • I made this on the weekend

    Submitted by Blonde_Moment on 4. October 2016 - 17:23.

    I made this on the weekend and like everyone else it didn't set either. Im not sure what happened as I followed the recipe to the letter and this is the first time my cheesecake has never set. I'm thinking the water to gelatine ratio may have been wrong.

    On a plus side I told the kids it was strawberry yoghurt and they lapped it up tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I made this on Sat to take to

    Submitted by shaj on 26. September 2016 - 10:45.

    I made this on Sat to take to a dinner party. Took it out to decorate and it had a slight wobble so was set. Drove to the dinner party took it out and it was a runny mess, looked like a smoothie not a cheesecake. Such a waste of ingredients plus the embarrasment of not being able to serve up a dessert. Took it home and it still hasnt set.

  • Didn't set for me either! I

    Submitted by Kowhai on 22. September 2016 - 07:32.

    Didn't set for me either! I followed the recipe, used stated amounts of lemon juice and gelatine, and gave it 7 hours in the fridge to set but still no luck. I've never had a no-bake cheesecake not set for me before, so I'm stumped as to why this recipe didn't work.

  • Thank you for the yummy

    Submitted by Tweetgurl85 on 8. May 2016 - 20:23.

    Thank you for the yummy recipe, I made this for our Mother's Day dessert and everybody loved it. I was a little worried about it not setting due to the comments but mine set beautifully. I did change the gelatin and water ratio to 3 teaspoons gelatin and 4 tablespoons hot water.

    Didn't set for either. Should have read the comments before I made. Was taking it for Easter lunch !! Won't be now it would be a puddle of mess by the time we got there.

    Sadly for me it also didn't set! After reading Trina's review I was super careful to do the lemon juice and gelatin plus left it in the fridge for 6-7 hours yet as soon as I took the ring off it completely floppedtmrc_emoticons.(

    Taste was good though.

  • Hi Trina. I'm sorry this

    Submitted by littlebeccyhomemaker on 20. May 2015 - 10:17.

    Hi Trina. I'm sorry this didn't work out for you. I've made this cheesecake too many times to count and never had an issue with it not setting. Without having been there with you, all I can think is that you may have omitted the lemon juice which is required along with the gelatin to set the cake, or that your scales may be out and you might need to clean the feet of your thermie. Better luck next time.

  • Sadly this didn't set at all.

    Submitted by Thermotastic Trina on 15. March 2015 - 15:41.

    Sadly this didn't set at all. I followed the ingredients exactly, using the same amounts as listed. Followed each step exactly too tmrc_emoticons.(  Any suggestions on why this wouldn't have set? All ingredients and gelatine were within date, so not sure what happened.
