You are probably looking for some yummy and easy dessert recipes for the 4th of July next week. You're in luck! These 4-ingredient no-bake mini cheesecakes with strawberries and blueberries fit the bill . . . of rights! (Ha, terrible pun and joke, but I couldn't pass it up.) Anyway, these no-bake mini cheesecakes take under 15 minutes to prep, contain zero refined sugars, and are gluten-free! Healthy and delicious. Glory, glory hallelujah!
How to Make Gluten-Free Crust for No-Bake Mini Cheesecakes
You ready for this mind-blowingly awesome no-bake dessert hack? Okay, here it goes . . .
Gluten-free protein energy balls! Yep. So simple, right? I used the Bounce Vanilla Almond Protein Energy Balls because they have a sweet flavor—perfect for cheesecake crust. All you do is mold them into a mini cheesecake pan. (I recommend getting this pan because it's non-stick and the bottoms easily pop out for clean cheesecakes!) I love the convenience of this crust, because pulling out the food processor feels too fussy sometimes.
Also, I have to tell you a story about ordering these energy bites on Amazon! I thought I had the flavors I needed when I went to make these no-bake mini cheesecakes the other day. But, upon digging through my pantry, I realized we had eaten every last ball! In a panic, I clicked open my Amazon app and looked to see if they were available. Not only did they have the flavors I wanted, but they had SAME DAY DELIVERY! (It really is a life-changing shipping option and feature.)
Anyway, I like using these for the crust because Bounce Protein Energy Balls are all gluten-free, and each have 10 grams of protein. Meaning I don't get freakishly hangry because I eat these in between meals. I 100% recommend them.
I actually met the owner, Paula, at Natural Food Expo West earlier this year in March. She and her husband started the company in Australia, and are downright lovely people. They are now opening sales in the US for their healthy goodies, and I'm so happy to help them spread the good word! Coconut Macadamia and Superberry (it's vegan!) flavors are my other top choices if you can't decide which ones to try! Click here to order them on Amazon.
Now, go make these delicious 4-ingredient no-bake mini cheesecakes!
