Don't heat up the oven or your house. The only thing that will be setting off sparks are these no-bake mango cheesecake bars!

by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD

Actually, I am the crazy lady who still bakes in the sweltering heat in the summer. I love me some mini fruit tarts, crisps and crumbles and a few days ago, I made these Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundaes with the daughter (totally worth the extra sweat beads.)

But no matter what dessert I’m making in the summer, I like to keep them all pretty simple like these no-bake cheesecake squares that only have 6 ingredients.


Don't heat up the oven or your house. The only thing that will be setting off sparks are these no-bake mango cheesecake bars!

I used frozen mango because that’s what I had in the freezer but any fruit would work like peaches, berries, bananas – you name it. If you want to use fresh summer fruit in this recipe, chop it up and stick in the freezer first for a few hours.

My better-for-you tweaks:

  • Portioned into squares vs. bigger cake slices
  • Swapped in some greek yogurt for the cream cheese
  • Used mascarpone instead full-fat cream cheese
  • Used less added sugar found in typical cheesecakes

Other no-bake sweet treats for the summer:
Icebox Cherry Tiramisu

Frozen Chocolate Fruit Kabobs

Watermelon Lemonade Slushies

Cherry Fool

So, what about you? Do you ever bake in the summer or is the oven kept off as much as possible?
