simple dessert recipes

Make your picnic the best family picnic ever with this simple dessert recipe. Moreover, this is also a summertime delight that kids and adults would surely love. The typical graham cracker crust, nonfat Greek yogurt, and reduced-fat cream cheese contains Omega-3 that is good for the heart.


1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup margarine, softened, ¼ cup sugar, 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 cup heavy cream, whipped, and 1 (12.5 ounce) can cherry pie filling (or other filling of your choice)

Explicitly, you may use sour cherries if you desire to give your no-bake cherry cheesecake a bright red topping.  This gives a purpler tint to your cake. Of course, if you want to make it gluten-free, use gluten-free crackers.

To do it, here is how!

  1. Mix together margarine, sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Press the mixture into a pile plate that goes up to the plate’s both sides if possible.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until it smooths and becomes spreadable. Whisk the whipped cream into the cheese cream. Pour the prepared mixture into the crust. Smoothen the top with a spatula and refrigerate until it becomes firm for two to three hours.
  3. Spread the cherry filing over the top and chill until serving.
