These no bake strawberry Oreo cheesecake cups are so easy to make! The secret ingredient is Greek yogurt, combined with softened cream cheese for that classic tangy cheesecake flavor.
Oreos and strawberries are a match made in heaven, too, and the layers here are absolutely dreamy. Whipped cream on top is totally optional, but dresses up these cheesecake parfaits a bit for an even fancier-looking dessert!
No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Jars with Strawberries
If you love anything ‘cookies and cream’ flavor, there’s a strong chance you’ll love these too! They have plenty of sweetness (without being overly sweet), and the combination of chocolate and strawberry flavor is *chef’s kiss*.
Plus, they’re lower in sugar than typical cheesecake (sweetened with maple syrup, plus the sugar in the Oreos), and don’t require an electric mixer.
It’s a tasty summery dessert that doesn’t require any baking, and only takes 15 minutes to throw together!
Here’s what you’ll need for these no bake cheesecake cups:
For the cheesecake filling: This is made with half cream cheese and half Greek yogurt, plus a splash of vanilla extract to enhance the flavors and some maple syrup for sweetness. (You can use vanilla Greek yogurt – just omit the vanilla extract in that case.)
For the Oreo/strawberry layers: The other layers in these cheesecake cups are super simple! Just crushed Oreos (including the cream filling, unless you prefer to leave it out), and chopped strawberries. And of course, you can add a layer of whipped cream or coconut whip on top if you’d like.
How to Make Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake Cups
The only actual mixing required here is for the no bake cheesecake filling. After that, all you have to do is assemble the parfaits!
Before you start: be sure to set out your cream cheese for an hour to soften. It needs to be at room temperature to make mixing the cheesecake filling possible. (I recommend cutting the cream cheese into cubes, then putting it in a bowl and covering it with plastic wrap. That way, it softens more evenly.)
1: Crush Oreos
Start by crushing the Oreos, either in a zippable bag with a rolling pin, or in a food processor. (I left the cream filling in, but that’s up to you! The recipe will work either way, it’ll just be less sweet without it).
2: Prepare the No Bake Cheesecake Filling
Next, in a bowl, combine all the wet ingredients: cream cheese, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Mix well with a fork, mashing the cream cheese as you go, until smooth. (Alternatively, you can use an electric mixer if you prefer.)
3: Layer the Cheesecake Cups
Then, spoon (or pipe) a layer of cheesecake filling into the bottom of each parfait jar. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top, then spoon a layer of chopped strawberries over it. Continue until the jar is full.
Add whipped cream on top if desired, then serve immediately!
Can I make this dessert ahead of time?
I wouldn’t recommend making these Oreo cheesecake cups in advance, as the crushed Oreos can get soggy. But you can definitely prepare the cheesecake mixture ahead! Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
Just be sure to set it out on the counter at room temperature for about 30 minutes, or until it softens again. Stir well, then spoon into the jars and assemble the layers right before serving.
If it isn’t soft enough to spoon into the jars easily, you can use a piping bag (or ziploc/plastic bag with the tip cut off) to pipe the cheesecake mixture into the jars.
Recipe Variations for Oreo Cheesecake Jars
Don’t want to use cream cheese (or don’t have it)? No problem – just use all Greek yogurt! The cheesecake layer won’t be quite as thick or tangy, but it will have a lighter consistency. (Love chocolate? Try these raspberry chocolate yogurt parfaits!).
Don’t have Greek yogurt? You can use whipped cream in the cheesecake filling instead. Just be aware that if it has added sugar in it already, you may not want to use as much maple syrup. I also recommend using an electric mixer in this case to properly combine the ingredients.
Don’t have maple syrup? You can replace it with powdered sugar, but you may need to use an electric mixer to mix the filling, since it will be thicker.
You can also swap out the strawberries for another type of berry, such as raspberries!
I love how dang simple these are to make (plus those pretty layers)! Every bite has three distinct yet complimentary flavors. It’s a party in your mouth!
