No Bake Cheesecake with Newtons Fruit Thins

Anyone who knows me knows I have an undeniable weakness for cheesecake.  I consider it a main food group…I am that obsessed.

With the weather warming up and the closest Cheesecake Factory 50 miles away I decided to get creative in the kitchen with a no bake cheesecake {actually, almost no bake}.  The ingredients couldn’t be more simple and I had a package of Newtons new Blueberry Fruit Thins to try.  They are delicious all by themselves (I picked out a few stragglers after I crushed them) but I love the crust I made with them.  The fruit thins are made with whole grains and real fruit.  It gave the crust a nutty flavor which paired really nicely with the filling.

Disclaimer: I received Newtons Fruit Thins as a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program.  I received no further compensation to review this product.  My opinions and recipe are all my own.

With the Fourth of July weekend coming up make this dessert ahead of time and top it with fresh blueberries and strawberries for a festive treat!  The addition of fruit totally qualifies this as healthy…right!?

Newtons Blueberry Fruit Thins Crust

  • 1 package of cookies (2 cups of crumbs)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

Pulse the fruit thins in a food processor until they are crushed.  If there are any big pieces remaining, pick them out.  Place the crumbs in a medium bowl and mix in the melted butter until it’s completely incorporated.  Press the crumbs into a spring form pan evenly along the bottom and sides.  Bake in a 350° oven for 8 minutes.  Allow to cool before filling.

Cheesecake filling

  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 container whipped topping

Whip the the cream cheese and whipped topping together until incorporated.  I beat if for a minute or two to fluff it up a bit.  Once the crust is cooled completely pour the filling into it and spread it.  Chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

  1. […] WHIP.  Then my mind wanders to cheese {because it’s never far from my mind} and I think of this cheesecake I made about a year […]
