FOODGASM: NO BAKE, COCONUT CAKE
I’m always surprising myself by what comes from my kitchen. The problem I have is that once I like something (or learn it) I just stick to it and find different ways to flip it. Valentine’s day was approaching and I just wanted to make cheesecake again for bae, but this time I didn’t want to add the egg and bake it. So I opt’d for a no bake cheesecake that would fill us up and make us fall in love all over again.
I was entirely surprised by how quick this took to make and how much you could play around with it to make it different. From the base, to the granola or graham crackers, even to the jam that you can make. Strawberry jam by the way, BOMB AF! Blueberries or blackberries, EVEN CHERRIES, DO IT! So Get into it!
Take the cream cheese (room temp), coconut milk and condensed milk and mix them all together. Once blended, place in the fridge.
While your cream cheese is cooling, take your diced strawberries and put them in a pot on medium heat, stirring.
The strawberries will cook down (make sure not to burn) and you'll then stir in the water. Bring to a simmer.
Stir in your sugar once you notice your mixture bubbling up and continue to stir on occasion while it starts to form shape.
Once your compote/jam is the consistency you'd like, let it cool.
In a stemless cup or mason jar place the granola at the base and layering the cheesecake mixture and jam on top. Then serve!
- You can use 8 oz of cream cheese with a whole can of condensed milk if you'd like or instead of the coconut milk add a 1/3 cup of sour cream.
- Instead of strawberries you can use any other berry that you'd prefer.
