I was ever so delighted to know that princes has a wonderful range of ready made Fruit Fillings which are perfect for creating some tasty home baked treats, from trifles to tarts and crumbles there are so many amazing desert you can make using Princes Fruit Fillings.

For more amazing inspirational recipes with a vast variety of fruit options I decided to choose my favourite Strawberry Fruit Filling and test out my Strawberry no cook Cheesecake.

Princes Strawberry no cook Cheesecake


Strawberry purée 
1/2 tin Princes Strawberry fruit fillings
50g icing sugar
Strawberries to decorate

17 Digestives biscuits
100g butter 
500g soft cream cheese
200g icing sugar
1 pot double cream
Teaspoon vanilla essence

Crush Digestive biscuits in a large clean food bag until you have very fine crumbs
next Melt the butter and mix in digestive biscuits crumbs, then in a lined/greased cake tin preferably one with an opening or removable bottom, push digestive mixture firmly all around and allow to cool and harden in the fridge for approx 1 hour.


After 1 hour mix together the  cream cheese and icing sugar with a palette knife, then add the fresh cream, vanilla essence and  whisk an electric whisk until mixture firms.

Then add cheesecake mixture on top of the digestive base, smooth cheesecake and put in fridge preferably overnight. Once mixture is has firmed gently release cheesecake from tin.

In a blender blend up at least half of the tin of the Princes Strawberry Fruit Filling 50g of icing sugar, then using a piping bag drizzle the mixture on the cheesecake.
Using them remainder of the Strawberries decorate the cheesecake and there you have it a deliciously creamy cheesecake.

I was given the Princes Fruit Fillings to test and share my recipe ideas and thoughts, all thoughts and recipe are honest and of my own.
