This No-Bake Strawberry Yogurt Cheesecake is made using fresh strawberry, thus it has a rich strawberry taste. You need to first cook the strawberry flesh with sugar into strawberry filling before folding into the cheese mixture. This recipe also has some whipped cream added so that the cheesecake is not too dense.
