Finally! The recipe that I have teased you with and some of you have anticipated so I'm excited to share this!
Yes, it's truueee! It takes only 5 minutes to make this cheesecake recipe. I added strawberries to mine since I didn't want a plain cheesecake, but of course you can put other kind of berries or whatnot to satisfy your cravings.
This is the original recipe that I tried the first time and it didn't turn out too well for me possibly because I didn't follow the directions correctly. :P I used a whole can of condensed milk and it ended up too runny so I had to freeze the cheesecake. This second time around I found a better mixture that worked for me. Yaya!
Switch up the recipe a bit for your own liking. For me, I love revising recipes I find so I can make it my own.
So, these are the only 5 ingredients you'll need for the basic cheesecake. I added strawberries to mine so I technically have 5 ingredients. Hehe.
* 1/2 cup condensed milk (or a little less if you want it less creamy)
* 2 boxes 8 oz cream cheese (leave out an hour before so it can be softer to mix)
* 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
* cool whip and a graham crust (or whatever crust you prefer)
PLEASE NOTE: The filling I made this time was very thin, so the ingredients above is doubled for those who want a lot of filling. If not, you can cut the ingredients in half. The photos I took was only half of the ingredients above, but I went ahead and revised it for those who want a plain cheesecake or just more filling in general. So sorry for the confusion! Haha.
These were my ingredients:
I began by prepping the strawberries and slicing them into the ready made graham crust.
Then for the cheesecake filling mix the cream cheese, condense milk, lemon or lime juice together until it is thick and creamy.
Afterwards pour the filling into the graham crust and smooth it over. Put a lid or saran wrap over the cheesecake and chill for about 2 to 3 hours. The graham crust came with a plastic covering on top so I just flipped the plastic covering over and used it as a lid. So very neat, yes. :)
Once it's nice and chilled put whip cream on top if you like. I did because I'm addicted to whip cream-- and anything sweet really. Haha.
Cut off a slice or two or three and enjooyyy! The perfect dessert when you're on a crunch for time.
This strawberry cheesecake was fast, easy and so delicious. Definitely a recipe I will be making quite often and I'll be sure to try some different fruits! Give it a try and let me know how it turns out! I hope you like this recipe as much as I do! :)
