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. I researched no bake cheesecakes and 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.

  1. YUM! I love all the fresh fruit and the crust sounds amazing! I’ve never tried dates in a crust before, what a neat idea.

      Thanks Danielle! I hope you try it. Dates are perfect in a crust because they’re naturally sweet and sticky so they hold everything together. I bet you’ll really like it.

  2. I may try it with coconut cream and maybe some soft tofu instead of cream cheese to make it vegan.

      You could definitely make it vegan Michele. I actually thought of making it that way for this recipe but I decided to do it next time instead. I’ve read that you can soak cashews in water to soften them up and then puree them in a food processor. Then mix coconut milk with the pureed cashews. It sounds delicious!

  3. Nice! I like the idea behind the crust! My boyfriend doesn’t eat dates, but I could try to make this when i visit my parents, they do and would help me eat it all 😀

      Thanks Eva! I was really excited to make a crust for cheesecake without graham crackers or cookies. Too bad your boyfriend doesn’t like dates. Has he ever tried them in a no bake treat like this or an energy bite? To me, it’s a lot different than eating a date plain.
