Cheesecake in a jar

Cheesecake in a jar

No-bake cheesecake with fruit is my favourite summer dessert. It’s light, refreshing, but rich and creamy at the same time. Lately, I’ve been making this sweet treat in the jars. It’s the lazy version (and yummier in my opinion) of a classic cheesecake. The best part of the recipe- it’s seriously hard to mess up. An easy recipe for everyone!

These mascarpone cheesecakes are delightfully simple and delicious. On the bottom, they have no-bake crumble made of oats and cashews. Using chopped nuts instead of classic ground cookies is a tasty way to add some extra crunch (and healthy fats, of course) to your cheesecakes. Instead of strawberries, nectarines and blueberries on top, feel free to use whatever type of fruit you prefer.

Give this recipe a try, I’m sure you will love it. It really can’t be any more simple!
