Mixed Berries. You can use any kind of berry or combo of berries you enjoy. Try strawberry, blueberry, raspberry . . . the tasty options are endless.
Powdered Monkfruit. If you only have granulated monkfruit, turn it into powder by blending it in your high speed blender or food processor. It should resemble the consistency of powdered sugar.
Almond Flour. Pure almonds, no wheat products. This gluten free alternative is also packed with protein!
For the crust:
Combine almond flour with powdered monkfruit and melted butter. Press into a square baking dish. Let the crust chill while you make the filling.
For the cheesecake filling:
Beat cream cheese with monkfruit powder. Blend in vanilla extract, sour cream and lime juice until well combined.
Pour this filling into the chilled crust.
For the berry topping:
Put the frozen berries in a sauce pan. Warm on medium heat until the berries become a light jam. Pour the jam over the filling.
Chill the cheesecake bars in the fridge for at least four hours. Overnight works, too!
Tips & Tricks
- Slice the cheesecake into 9 square bars before serving.
- Keep any uneaten bars in a covered container in the refrigerator. For best taste, enjoy no bake cheesecake bars within 5 days.
- If you’re using fresh berries, skip the cooking step. Just add the berries right to the top of the cheesecake before setting. Both ways are equally delicious.
- Add a dollop of sugar free whipped cream to the top with fresh berries instead of the jam.
Monkfruits are small melon-like gourds from South East Asia. The monk fruit sweetener in this recipe is made from the fruit’s extracts. The extract contains no naturally occurring sugars but is at least 150 times sweeter than sugar. It’s also calorie free, fat free and carb free. Unlike many other sugar substitutes, monkfruit extract is stable at high heats making it perfect for baking.
No, it is not. Almond meal is made from unpeeled, raw almonds and is coarser than almond flour. Almond flour should be used in this recipe for consistent results.
I don’t recommend low fat or fat free cheesecakes. Not only do they tend to have added sugars, they are also less rich and creamy than regular versions.

Aimee, The No Bake Cheese Cake recipe is a definite blue ribbon! The only thing that I substituted was the sour cream. I used Greek Yogurt and it was absolutely a "keeper" recipe. The organic blueberry jam on the top was the beautiful royal purple crown.
