Cheesecake Mousse


This is a quick and easy dessert to prepare as a treat but is impressive enough to serve to dinner guests. You can prepare it in advance or whip it up when the mood strikes and eat straight away.

250 grams cream cheese, softened
150 ml cream, softly whipped
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ cup icing sugar
10 round wine biscuits or similar
berry or passionfruit sauce to top

Place your biscuits in a snap lock bag and beat with a rolling pin to break them up. Divide the crumbs between 4 serving glasses. (If you are feeling fancy and want to make it a little more like a ‘real’ cheesecake you could melt a little butter and mix with the crumbs.)
Place cream cheese in the bowl of your mixer and beat using a whisk attachment for 2-3 minutes.
Add lemon juice and sift in icing sugar and mix until combined.
Add half the cream and continue to mix until combined. Fold in the remaining cream.
Place the cream cheese mixture in a piping bag and pipe into the centre of each of your serving glasses.
* If preparing in advance I twist the top of my piping bag and place in in a tall glass and refrigerate until needed. Removing it 5 or so minutes before I want to pipe the mix out.
Top each serve with a sauce of your choice.

Easy peasy! Even though it is so simple I think it actually looks a little more sophisticated and special than a slice of cheesecake with the bonus that it is much easier to make. Enjoy x


  1. looks so delicious! my piping isn't very good but i'm sure the taste will make up for it :)

  2. Sam my piping wasn't great but it was nothing the sauce couldnt hide :)

    Such a simple and easy to make dessert. Went down a treat with the family.

    1. Glenda yours looked great! Thanks again for sharing your pic. You can pipe without a tip - I actually just filled my bag and piped through the wide nozzle that you would usually sit your tip in :-) Then just squeeze it out into the centre of your serving dish and let it build up, if that makes sense.
