Take a trip back to your childhood, inspired by the Orange Super Split - this No Bake Orange Cream Cheesecake is creamy, decadent but so easy to make. It has a gorgeous sweet orange flavour just like the ice pop and is the perfect Summer Dessert.
FOR THE CRUST
150gcrumbled digestive biscuits – use a food processor for this
FOR THE CHEESE CAKE
1packet orange Jelly135g - Chivers, Hartley or something similar
900gramscream cheese – I used 3 250ml tubs
500mlwhipped cream - WHIP THE CREAM FIRST AND THEN MEASURE IT
zest of one large orange
ORANGE COLOURING -OPTIONAL
FOR DECORATION – ALL OPTIONAL
Orange Chocolate Drops
Mini Meringuesmini orange jelly’s
Or just drizzle with some melted whitemilk or dark chocolate
Spray an 8” or 9” springform baking pan with baking spray or use some melted butter.
Mix together the digestive biscuit crumbs and the melted butter in a bowl, then press them into the bottom of the spring form pan.
Chill the crust in the freezer for at least 30 mins or until ready to use.
Melt the orange jelly with the boiling water in a pot over a low heat and stir until dissolved. Leave to one side to cool for 5 minutes but careful not to let it set too much.
Whip the cream cheese and the powdered sugar until well combined.
Whip the cream and measure out 500ml of whipped cream.
Add the Orange Jelly mixture along with the orange extract to the cream cheese mixture very slowly. Put your mixer on a slow speed and mix till everything is incorporated and there are no lumps.
Gently fold in the orange zest and the whipped cream with a rubber spatula until combined.
(This is where I added the orange coloring but this totally optional and not necessary. I only did it to get a light orange colour) I gently mixed it in with the spatula
Pour the mixture into biscuit base.
Chill the cheesecake overnight to set.
Remove the Cheese Cake from the pan & decorate to your hearts content.
I used whipped cream, some mini meringues, orange chocolate drops - but you could keep it simple with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate
The time includes over-night setting in the fridge
