Lovely Orange and Pomegranate Cheesecake



No-Bake Orange and Pomegranate Cheesecake

I’m a chocolate fan boy! I always was, but this! This makes me want to reconsider. It’s so fluffy and light and it has all that fresh fruit on top, you just can’t hold back from eating it to the last crumb. I mean look at it! Lovely biscuits, fresh ricotta cheese, oranges and pomegranate seeds.

And surprise, surprise! There is no baking involved! Yey! I’m sure for many of you baking is a torment and I have to admit I had my fair share of disastrous baking experiences. Like, did it rise?┬áIs it done? Is it overcooked? What’s burning? So many questions, but luckily this cheesecake is a no-baker!

Mix the ingredients together real good, level every layer so it looks neat and tidy and you are done. One hell of a dessert for everyone! Or, maybe just for you?

Set aside in the fridge for about 30 minutes. This will be the base of the cheesecake.

  1. It’s so bright and beautiful! Exactly what the wintertime needs. I’ve never thought of a cheesecake without cream cheese. I’m pinning this to try later!

    • I hope you like my idea of using ricotta cheese. I wanted to make it with cream cheese, but couldn’t find any near where I live so I improvised a bit. Turned out really great.
