Valentine’s day is just few days away and while some consider this day a Hallmark holiday, I see it as way to spread the love to the max. I know we don’t need a day to show others how much they mean to us, but it’s definitely good to have one. Plus, since chocolate is involved, it’s definitely a bonus.

Another must-have on Valentine’s day are strawberries and I’m so excited to share the recipe for this skinny no-bake berry cheesecake bars with you today.

Skinny no bake berry cheesecake bars

I’ve spotted this recipe a while back on Kraft website and have been meaning to try it ever since, but I kept postponing it. There was always a more tempting recipe to try. How silly of me! If I knew how incredible creamy these berry cheesecake bars are I would have made them the moment I saw the recipe.

They are sweet, bursting with berry flavor and incredibly creamy. You know how much I love cheesecake! Trust me when I say these cheesecake bars rank high!

My version of these cheesecake bars is just slightly different from the recipe found on Kraft website.

The crust is made with just graham crackers and butter. I added absolutely no sugar to it. For the cheesecake filling I used frozen cherry berry fruit blend thawed and drained and instead of sugar I added Truvia. Now, of course if you’d like to use sugar, you can definitely do so.  1 cup of sugar per 13X9″ pan is not too bad. We’re talking 1.5 teaspoon of sugar per bar.

    These cheesecake bars look so fabulous! Makes me hungry just looking at them! Must get the ingredients to make these for the family! We all love cheesecake, too, and these would disappear in no time! Thank you for such wonderful recipes!!

    Wowzers these are so pretty and then you tell me they are no bake and skinny?! Score! Although, if something is skinny I tend to have no self control, therefore the skinny part never really mattered in the first place! LOL

    Love a no-bake cheesecake and especially the one that is bursting with berries, Roxana! I have a quick question, I just made a no-bake cheesecake and actually bought Neufchatel cheese for it, not Philadelphia but some French brand. However, when I opened the package it looked like a brie cheese in texture. Anyway, I decided to just eat it and use a blend of cream cheese and goat cheese for the cheesecake. Was yours the same in texture and you jut have to whip it? lol Thanks in advance! Julia

      Hi Julia,

      The Neufchatel cheese looks just like cream cheese. In fact, if they were both out of package I don’t think I could tell which one is Neufchatel and which one is cream cheese. You can definitely use just cream cheese or mix in some goat cheese like you mentioned.
