No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake

I love no-bake desserts because secretly even though I love cooking, I suck at baking. Maybe in time i’ll be more practiced, but having to use exact measurements for a recipe to turn out is not my favorite thing. These little Raspberry cheesecakes are so cute, easy, and surprisingly pretty healthy as far as desserts go!

I found these cute little mason jars at target in the dollar section the other day and thought they’d be the perfect serving vessel for these cheesecakes! It even made it easy for me to just throw a lid on and send 2 of these home for my mom. I think its awesome presentation to be able to see the three layers of the cheesecake too.

I divided this recipe into six servings with these little jars and it worked out perfectly. The cream cheese base is very filling, even though I added quite a bit of  cream to make this recipe a little more fluffy. The raspberries on top really make this! Its not too sweet, but just enough. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did!
