To make this Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake I've used the strawberry cheesecake oreos for the base, added a creamy strawberry filling and then more yummy oreos and whipped cream on top. It's also super easy to make and is a no-bake recipe so you can't really go wrong. I added some pink sprinkles too, but you could drizzle white chocolate on top or add strawberry slices if you like. It would be a fantastic dessert for Valentine's Day!
The strawberry cheesecake filling is so light and creamy, and the crunchy oreo base is the perfect contrast. This Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake was a success with my friends and it was clean plates all round. My friends said it reminded them of childhood favourites like angel delight and nesquik milkshakes. I love it when something I make can evoke happy memories!
How to make Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake...
To make the base blitz the oreos in a food processor, add melted butter to them and mix together. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 23cm springform tin and put it in the fridge to chill.
For the cheesecake filling use an electric hand mixer to whisk up full fat cream cheese and icing sugar. Then add double cream and whisk until thick. Add some strawberry flavouring (I used LorAnn flavour oil), and some pink food colouring until it is a nice baby pink colour.
Smooth the filling over the base then leave it in the fridge overnight to set. To decorate the Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake, whip up double cream and pipe rosettes all around the edge, then I add more oreos on top and some pink sprinkles too.
How do you make sure the cheesecake sets?
When you’re mixing the filling, you want it to get to a stage where you can scoop some up with your spatula or spoon and you have to give it a tap on the side of the bowl or slight flick of the wrist to get the mixture off the spoon. If it’s sloppy and slides right off the spoon without any encouragement needed, then you need to mix it more. Always use an electric mixer for best results. It’s also very important to use full fat cream cheese and double cream (heavy cream), as any low fat versions will affect the setting of the cheesecake. I always set my cheesecake overnight in the fridge, I’d suggest a minimum of 4 hours.

What is the best food colouring to use?
I recommend using a professional grade food colouring for the best results. The brands I use most often are Pro Gel and Sugarflair.
