This super fast, no cook cheesecake dessert is one of my favorite recipes from the Trim Healthy Mama book! Pair a half serving of this yummy S dessert with a light dinner or even enjoy a full serving as your breakfast! I love the burst of fresh cold berry flavor with the salty crunch and creamy cheesecake..total party in your mouth!
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Trim Healthy Mama
Serves: 1-2
  • ½ cup dry roasted, salted almonds
  • ½ t. vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 drops NOW Lemon essential oil or ⅛th t. lemon extract (optional but so good!)
  • ¼ cup cream cheese (low fat or regular) or 2 oz. from a block.
  • sweetener to taste- I use NuNaturals Stevia extract
  • ¾ cups raspberries, strawberries, or berry blend
  1. Chop almonds by hand into chunks (each almond into about ⅓ if you're detail oriented), or pulse briefly in the food processor.
  2. If using a food processor: dump chopped almonds into your serving bowl, and add cream cheese, flavorings, and sweetener to the food processor bowl. Cream together, and add to your serving bowl with the almonds.
  3. If you're doing it by hand: which is my preference, then just leave your almonds on the cutting board, and add your cream cheese, flavorings and sweetener to the serving bowl and cream together.
  4. Taste and adjust flavors/sweetness.
  5. Stir chopped almonds, frozen berries, and cream cheese mixture together until well combined.
  6. Dig in!
Serving size: ½ of a batch for dessert, or a full batch for breakfast or snack. You can even enjoy a small shot of light whipped cream on top.
