Quick Cheesecake Recipe, No Bake

Quick Cheesecake For One Serving

This quick cheesecake recipe serves one portion and is a real treat that can be made in under 2 minutes!  The cheesecake recipe takes “food cheats” to a new level because in this no bake recipe you don’t even “bother” to make a cheesecake base at all!

You can use this recipe and method to make a cheesecake base by crushing the biscuits, adding melted butter, then reforming the base and chilling – but why go to all that extra time if you just want a quick cheesecake taste?

All ingredients used are “store cupboard” and long life ingredients, except the milk – and even there you could use dried powdered milk and make it on demand if you wished!


  • 2 digestive biscuits
  • 2-3 teaspoons of lemon curd
  • 10 grams of Dream Topping, Angel Whip in the US
  • 40 grams of full fat milk


  1. Place the biscuits on your plate and  spread them with lemon curd.
  2. Weigh out 10 grams of Dream Topping and 40 grams of full fat milk – this ratio of 1 part Dream Topping to 4 parts milk is the ratio if you wish to make more than just two cheesecakes!  These measurements are for a Single Portion.  Whisk the powder and the milk together for 30-60 seconds, by which time it will be forming peaks and going stiff.
  3. Spoon the thick creamy Dream Topping onto the top of the biscuit base and lemon curd


This no bake cheesecake recipe is something you can make on a whim.  I make them to save myself from having to buy individual cheesecakes in the supermarket.

Price Per No Bake Cheesecake: 

The biscuits I’ve used are the Lidl Tower Gate Digestive Biscuits.  These currently cost 31p for a packet containing about 27 biscuits, so that’s just over 2p for two biscuits.  The lemon curd is a cheap jar, at 30p, so I’ve probably used 2p of lemon curd.  10 grams of Dream Topping, which is a cost of approximately 10p.  The milk is about 40ml, so costs about 4-5p.

The total cost could therefore be about 10p per no bake cheesecake!  Instant and frugal, what’s not to like?
