No-bake mocha cheesecake with an Oreo crust. Possibly the best no-bake cheesecake I’ve had in a long time. I don’t know what it is like where you are, but it’s been unbearably humid where I am. It’s not too hot thankfully, but the humidity is out of control. I haven’t even bothered to try doing anything with my hair. There is just no point to it. Let’s not even talk about turning on the oven or cooking. It’s been lots of Panera and Chipotle and snacking for us.
Still, I crave something sweeter at night to tide over my sweet tooth and since life’s been really hectic for me lately, I needed to go back to my favorite dessert and make a cheesecake. And a no-bake cheesecake is just what I need. My favorite place to get cheesecake was alway Pret a Monger which is this amazing little sandwich place I would go to maybe four or five times a week back in London. They had this [no-bake] lemon cheesecake that was unbelievably light and fluffy. I mean, it defied the laws of cheesecake physics. That’s a thing right? Cheesecake physics.
This no-bake mocha cheesecake definitely matches that cheesecake in its airy creaminess with the help of fresh whipped cream folded into the batter. I’m not going to try and sell you on the flavor of the cheesecake. We all know what the deal is with mocha and how it is awesome with Oreos. If you need me to talk about the amazing balance and depth of flavors in a mocha cheesecake and how it is made even better by taking the oven out of the equation, then this might not be the cheesecake for you. Instead, just picture your favorite mocha whipped into the lightest cheesecake you’ve ever tasted and you’ve got this baby right here.
