When it’s hot out and the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven or your stove, these no bake strawberry cheesecake bars are here to save the day! Pull them out of the freezer to thaw out a little bit and top with some coconut whipped cream and freshly sliced strawberries. You can get any more summer than that!

I love any simple recipe that uses minimal ingredients and especially one that is no bake. It’s easy to swap out the strawberries for another fruit or add in other extracts or chocolate to give it a different flavor.

This recipe is also super easy to make dairy free and paleo friendly just by purchasing a dairy free cream cheese or if you want to be ambitious and make your own, you could try that too!

If you’re not into coconut, you can certainly use a classic graham cracker crust instead of the paleo shortbread.

See! Simple recipes are the best, you just swap things in and out and make it however your heart desires!
