5 Ingredient Strawberry Cheesecake Slice

5 ingredients is all you’ll need to make this rich and creamy slice:

Biscuit/cookie crumbs, butter, cream cheese, fresh strawberries and icing sugar (*scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for ingredient quantities and the method). 

 

The Best Biscuits/Cookies To Use

If you’re in Australia, then when I refer to the ingredients for the cheesecake slice base, I’m talking about ‘biscuits’, but if you’re in the US then they’re what you refer to as ‘cookies’. Whether you say cookies or biscuits, we’re talking about plain, sweet crunchy biscuits/cookies.

I like to use plain Arnott’s biscuits for my cheesecakes (like butternut snaps, marie, granita, milk arrowroot etc) – all of these options will work great! If Arnott’s biscuits aren’t available near you, simply choose any kind of plain, sweet cookie/biscuit that can be easily crushed in a food processor or blender.

How To Make Strawberry Puree

The cheesecake filling in this slice is sooooo good and it’s made from fresh strawberry puree! You’ll be licking it off the spoon (I promise!). 

Cut up strawberries in a bowl.

To flavour the cheesecake with strawberries, start off by chopping up 10 ripe strawberries and placing them into a microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 45 seconds before mashing with a spoon (this will allow the juices and puree to come out).

I love this filling because there’s no artificial colours or flavourings – just a beautiful natural strawberry taste!

A No-Bake Cheesecake Slice Without Gelatine 

This recipe doesn’t use any gelatine at all (just like our famous Chocolate Nutella Cheesecake Slice)… instead the filling is made made from cream cheese, strawberry juice/puree and icing sugar. 

I find that you get a better result and flavour when using full fat cream cheese, but you can choose to use light cream cheese if you prefer. 

Because this cheesecake slice recipe doesn’t use any gelatine, it remains deliciously soft and creamy once chilled. It’s important to keep the slice in the fridge until you’re ready to serve it.

Notes

Recipe Notes & Tips
Biscuits vs cookies: If you’re in Australia, then when I refer to the ingredients for the cheesecake slice base, I’m talking about ‘biscuits’, but if you’re in the US then they’re what you refer to as ‘cookies’. Whether you say cookies or biscuits, we’re talking about plain, sweet crunchy biscuits/cookies. 
Type of biscuits/cookies to use: I like to use plain Arnott’s biscuits for my cheesecakes (like butternut snaps, marie, granita, milk arrowroot etc). If Arnott’s biscuits aren’t available near you, simply choose any kind of plain, sweet cookie/biscuit that can be easily crushed in a food processor or blender. 
Homemade strawberry puree: Make your own strawberry puree by placing chopped strawberries into the microwave and cooking until soft. Place the strawberries into a fine sieve and press down firmly (allowing the juice and puree to drop through). 
Cheesecake filling without gelatine: This recipe does not use any gelatine and as such needs to be stored in the fridge up until serving. It will also remain softer than a cheesecake made with gelatine. 
Cream cheese: Use full fat cream cheese for a thick and firmer cheesecake. 
Storing the slice: Store the cheesecake slice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
