No-Bake Mondays: Strawberry Cheesecake Squares

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Squares 

It's cheesecake for the lazy.

Okay so it's not a real cheesecake but this wannabe comes close. Four things I love about no-bake strawberry cheesecake squares:
  1. I found the recipe in the kid section so that should tell you how insanely easy it is to make. Think last-minute potluck parties, midnight snacks, instant party nibblers, or just everyday desserts you can make with kids.
  2. It's quick and individually-portioned so you can make it only when you want it. Two and a half bites and you're done!
  3. Seriously, cream cheese, strawberry jelly, and Graham crackers make an awesome threesome. The cream cheese blends with the strawberry jelly like they were made for each other.
  4. Low-fat version available! Make with low-fat cream cheese, low fat Graham crackers, and sugar-free strawberry preserves.
Sound good? Try it. Big chance you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much it tastes like the real thing.

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Squares
Serves 1

1 tbsp whipped cream cheese
1 tsp strawberry jelly
1 Graham cracker
fresh strawberries to garnish

1. Spread cream cheese on Graham cracker. Tip: You may want to add a pinch of sugar to the cream cheese (I recommend Splenda) to make it sweeter but that's completely optional.
2. Spread jelly on top then finish with another cracker. Garnish with a slice of fresh strawberry.

Four ingredients, five minutes. Get to it.
