If there was one dessert I’m not sure I could live without it would be cheesecake. To tell you the truth, I’m a savoury girl and I’ll always choose potato chips or popcorn over a sweet treat. But there’s just something about cheesecake that gets me every time.
I love that cheesecake doesn’t have to be overly sweet to be delicious, and that it’s possible to make it at home with a fraction of the fat and calories of typical bakery cheesecake, but with all the creamy and delicious flavour! And no-bake cheesecake recipes are one of my new favourite things! They are a snap to make, and because they’re not baked you can achieve a pillowy smooth texture with rich flavours while keeping the added sugar and fat to a minimum.

Skinny No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Mason Jar Cheesecakes
- 4 tbsp chocolate cookie crumbs
- 8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese at room temperature
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups reduced fat whipped topping
- 1-2 cups fresh raspberries
- shaved dark chocolate for garnish optional
Start with 4 small mason jars (1 cup size), washed and dried. Add 1 tablespoon of the chocolate cookie crumbs to the bottom of each mason jar, pushing them down with the back of a spoon so they're packed evenly in the bottom of the jars.
Add the cream cheese to the bowl of your stand mixer (a large bowl and a hand mixer does the job just fine too!) and whip it on high speed until it's fluffy and smooth.
Add the powdered sugar, the unsweetened cocoa powder and the vanilla and mix on high speed until they're incorporated evenly. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl several times so everything gets incorporated.
Fold in 1 cup of the whipped topping by hand using a rubber spatula until there are no more streaks of white.
Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the jars, dividing it evenly between the 4 jars.
Top the cheesecake mixture with as many fresh raspberries as you can and store the mason jars covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
Top each mini-cheesecake with the remaining whipped topping and garnish with some dark chocolate shavings and a few fresh raspberries before serving!
I just love the combination of the deep chocolate flavour and the sweet, juicy raspberries in the no-bake mini cheesecake! It’s like Valentine’s Day in a mason jar!
