I’m sure I’ve seen a no bake cheesecake made with jelly crystals instead of gelatine – would love to get the recipe again.

     Notes

    I use Carnation evaporated milk. Use Marie biscuits and strawberry jelly crystals.

  • Thanks Bec_Cook, I have been promising to do this so will try this coming week.
    Wish me luck that it works.

  • Sorry, I’ve only just seen replies to this :/ I start with a tablespoon of milk and add more if it seems like it needs it for consistency. Hope that helps!

  • Interesting question – pretty keen on cheesecake. Would like to know how much milk too?

  • How much milk is used in your recipe? – it seems to not be included in the ingredients.
    But thanks for your post – I’ll try it soon.

  • Assuming you have made a cheesecake before, for the mix you’ll need:
    1 packet jelly (strawberry and lemon work particularly well, but you can use any)
    150 ml boiling water
    2 Philly cream cheese packets
    150 g caster sugar
    100 ml whipping cream.

    Melt jelly crystals with the boiling water and leave to cool to room temperature. Put the cream cheese into a mixing bowl and beat it until smooth and lump-free. Beat in the caster sugar, then gradually add the milk and cooled jelly, beating as you go. Then add the cream, pour onto the base and chill to set.

    Makes a somewhat ‘airy’ cheesecake, so if you prefer a denser mix, use less water when dissolving the jelly.
