Ingredients

Graham Cracker Base

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter melted

Cheesecake Mix

  • 2 8 oz packs cream cheese room temperature
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar more or less to taste. I use less as the fruit has a natural sweetness
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh strawberries wash and cored and roughly chopped
  • 1 large ripe banana peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries optional, for serving

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust

  1. Line and 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Leave some of the parchment outside of the pan as this will help to lift the cheesecake out of the pan.
  2. In a bowl combine all of the graham cracker base ingredients and mix to combine.
  3. Press the mixture into the bottom of your prepared baking pan, aiming for a nice flat even surface.
  4. Place the baking pan in the fridge to chill the crust for 1 hour.

Cheesecake Mix

  1. Add the cream cheese, sugar, strawberries, banana and vanilla extract to your blender and thoroughly mix to combine all ingredients.
  2. Using a cake mixer or whisk, whip the cream until stiff peaks appear.
  3. Add half the whipped cream to the cheesecake mix and blend in using a spatula. Add the remaining whipped cream and fold into the cheesecake mix
  4. Pour the cheesecake mix into the baking pan lined with the crust. Again, the goal should be a nice evenly smooth surface.
  5. Place the cheesecake into your freezer and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours.
  6. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer.
  7. Run a sharp knife under hot water and dry it off with a paper towel. While the knife is still hot slice the cheesecake into the bar size you desire. You can either slice into 3 rows of 3 or 4 rows of 4 depending your your serving size requirement.
  8. Keep the cheesecake frozen, but place in the fridge 30 minutes before you would like to serve. Top with either whipped cream, fresh strawberries or both.

Recipe Notes

Sweetened by the natural sugar in the fruit, this recipe requires little extra sugar to be added.
