No-Bake Mixed-Berry Cheesecake Cups

Recipe Type

Cheesecake to go? Yes please!



  • 2 ¼ cups berries*
  • 8 tablespoons sugar, divided 
  • 2 tablespoons water 
  • ½ small lime or 1 tablespoon lime juice, more to taste 
  • ½ cup very cold heavy cream
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature 
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 (6-ounce) packaged berries you prefer, for topping 
  • 8 (4-ounce) clear, plastic cups 

*Note: Substitute any one berry you prefer to make jam. 



Place 1 ½ cups of preferred berry in a tall saucepan, and add 3 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, and when berries begin popping, stir more frequently until the jam begins to thicken (about 15 minutes). 

Scrape the jam into a medium bowl and add lime juice and stir. Taste and add more lime juice if you prefer. Stir in ¾ cup of the remaining berry and set the bowl aside to cool. 

Once the jam mixture has cooled, divide it among cups. 

With an electric mixer, beat heavy cream until it holds medium peaks and put it to the side (about 5 minutes). 

In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons of honey and continue to beat until mixed well. Mix in vanilla. Using a spatula or spoon, fold the whipped heavy cream into the cream cheese mixture. 

Spoon the cheesecake mixture over the jam, and divide evenly among the 8 cups.

Cover and chill cups for at least 3 hours. 


After the cups have chilled for 3 hours, place the remaining 2 packages of preferred berries into a large bowl and mix. Spoon berries over the cheesecake cups and refrigerate until ready to serve.
