Easy No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Header image

Unashamedly indulgent, cheesecake is the perfect pick me up. Guaranteed to be a universal crowd pleaser amongst adults and children.

Using a no bake method means it’s incredibly quick and easy. Whipping the cream gives cheesecake a fluffy, mousse-like texture and the helping hand of gelatine ensures you don’t end up with a cheesecake flavoured waterfall when you take it out of the tin. Take care though – if you’re planning to serve this to vegetarians you’ll need to use a vegetarian alternative instead of gelatine, such as Dr Oetker’s Vege-Gel!
