There is no denying it, no bake desserts are my jam! And these no bake strawberry shortcake cheesecake bars are going to be your new go to dessert. And I love how easy they are to prepare, they taste delicious, and don’t require any bake time. The hardest part is having to wait while they set in the refrigerator or freezer.

  2. Medjool dates
  3. Freeze dried strawberries ( I buy mine at Trader Joe’s)
  4. Coconut butter
  5. Ripe banana
  6. Coconut cream
  7. Vanilla extract
  8. Coconut oil
  9. Maple Syrup
  10. SeeSalt Fleur de sel salt

Why Lovebird cereal?

I have been loving this amazing brand of organic, grain free, paleo, refined sugar free cereal, Lovebird. It definitely checks all my boxes. And I thought why not use it in a delicious cheesecake crust? I love that this cereal is made with real ingredients I can trust.

Ingredients include:

  • Cassava
  • Collagen
  • Coconut
  • Coconut oil
  • Sea salt

How to prepare the crust:

Add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until you get a smooth, sticky like consistency (about 30 seconds). And then add the crust to a lined 11×6 or 8×8 baking dish and press down with your fingers to create an even layer. And freeze while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Prepping the “cheesecake” filling:

Make sure to wipe down or wash the food processor before starting the filling. And then add in the freeze dried strawberries to food processor and process until you get a fine powder like consistency. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients and process until you reach a smooth consistency (45 seconds-1 minute). And spread an even layer on top of the crust, sprinkle some extra freeze dried strawberries on top, and refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours.

Cutting into bars:

And once your cheesecake has set, cut. into desired size bars. I cut into 12 bars but depending on the size you like, you could do 16 bars too.

How to store:

These can be store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or in the freezer if you want them to last longer.
