No bake yogurt cake

Happy 4th of July! I have been leaving in the US for quite some time now, but this will be my first 4th of July I spend in the US. In the past years, I was always in Europe so I never celebrated 4th of July. I don’t know what I will be doing today yet, we were invited to a couple of barbecues and some boat trips, but we still haven’t decided what we will be doing.

In the mean time I prepared a 4th of July cake. It is super easy to make, you don’t have to even turn on the oven or the stove and it is super fresh. Perfect for a summer dessert.

No bake yogurt cake

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours, 30 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings

No bake yogurt cake


  • 2 (250 gms) yogurt tubs
  • 1 (200 ml) small heavy whipping cream carton
  • 20-30 graham crackers
  • 1/3 (about 30 gms) stick butter
  • 1 packet powder gelatin
  • fruit to decorate


  1. First prepare a spring form pan by lining it with parchment paper. This is probably the most difficult past of the cake, as you want the paper to be smooth on the sides.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave and blend it with the cookies until you get a mixture of damp cookie crumbs. Press the cookie mixture into the cake mold to form a base for your cake. Put the mold in the freezer while you prepare the filling to allow it to solidify.
  3. In a bowl warm the yogurt and melt the gelatin in the yogurt. Whip the heavy whipping cream and, when stiff, mix it well to the yogurt mixture.
  4. Take the mold out of the fridge and spread the yogurt mixture over the base. Put in the fridge to solidify for about 3-4 hours.
  5. When the cake has solidified, decorate with your favorite fruit. In honor of the fourth of July I used blueberry and strawberries.
  6. Keep the cake in the fridge until serving and put the leftovers back in the fridge.

    I do so love fridge cheesecakes, and have never seen one made with yoghurt (which makes it SO much healthier than cream cheese). The berries are a lovely topping.

    Neat idea, using yogurt for an icebox cake! The tang of the yogurt and sweet fruit makes an awesome flavor combination. Thanks for sharing.
