No Bake Berry Cheesecake Tart
Love delicious no bake desserts? This No Bake Berry Cheesecake Tart is rich, creamy, so simple to make and as an added bonus low in sugar and carbs! It’s the perfect dessert to make during the hot summer months and it’s sure to impress.
A couple years ago I discovered (like many others) dates! They’re absolutely wonderful! I tell my kids dates are nature’s candy. They’re sweet, delicious and have a low glycemic index. Plus, they’re naturally sticky so they work wonders in developing a paste for no bake treats like this No Bake Berry Cheesecake Tart.
Dates are one of the healthiest sweet foods. They have iron, fiber, Vitamins A and B, potassium, flavonoids, magnesium, and manganese, among more. So despite the sugar content in dates, all the other vitamins and nutrients help your body metabolize carbohydrates, protein and fats.*
I chose to use dates in my tart because I’ve recently be trying to incorporate more and more beneficial and/or healthy foods in my family’s diet. So, while traditional tarts use wheat products I figured why not try to swap it out for a healthier option. After all, I’ve made a number of no bake flourless bite sized treats, like my No Bake Almond Chocolate Bites, a flourless tart crust just had to be tasty.
And the verdict is — so good! My family loved this No Bake Berry Cheesecake Tart. I was so excited to see the smiles on their faces.
My daughter kept referring to the tart as a cake with the best frosting ever! She’s so sweet.
Before I made this tart, I knew what I wanted to make.
I knew I wanted a date almond crust. I chose to add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors, and vanilla extract (cause well vanilla makes all treats delicious) and almond extract. Almond extract is absolutely delicious! It’s one of the best smelling ingredients. I wish I could add it to more things, it’s that tasty.
I also wanted to create a vanilla filling that resembled a cheesecake that was no bake because it’s summertime and the less I turn on the oven the better. After Internet research (probably too much Internet research 🙂 ) I found a lot of recipes using sweetened condensed milk. One of my goals was to have a low sugar content so I opted for heavy cream instead. I added the sour cream cause I thought it would add a little extra something, fresh lemon juice to brighten the flavor, a tiny bit of stevia to add a touch of sweetness and vanilla extract, of course!
I topped the tart with fresh berries – strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. It’s berry season and I just can’t resist fresh, sweet tasty berries – especially when they’re in season.
So in the end, my No Bake Berry Cheesecake Tart was so creamy, fluffy, perfectly sweet and patriotic! After all, the Fourth of July is just around the corner. This is the ultimate patriotic dessert!
However, I must warn you, if you’re like me, you may have to hide it in the back of your refrigerator otherwise you won’t stop taking little tastes.
