If there is one thing I love in the summer it’s no bake dessert. I mostly love it because it’s easy but I really love it because it means I don’t have to heat up the house for hours. When it’s 100 degrees outside the thought of heating up the house almost makes me want to scream. Plus I like to keep a nicely chilled house so ovens don’t go with that mix.

I’m such a baby when it comes to the heat I cannot stand to be warm. In a perfect world my house would be chilled to exactly 62 degrees.

Deep down inside I think I’m basically a popsicle in a human body.

Besides being obsessed with being a popsicle I’m now also obsessed with Snapchat. I feel like a 12 year old because what grown adult is obsessed with Snapchat?

Me, apparently. I basically blame Julie for my love of snapping. It’s her fault.

While I was shooting these little gems I snapped them {hence the picture above} so follow me {username: nutmegnanny} so you can follow along with my crazy antics. Warning – I sing a lot on my snaps.

Ok, enough about Snapchat and me secretly wanting to live my life of a popsicle. Lets talk about these no bake cheesecake bites. They are flavored with toasted coconut and lime which reminds me of paradise and who doesn’t love paradise? Plus I used my most favorite crispy Athens phyllo cup shells. They are the perfect shell to hold the cheesecake filling and keep a perfect crunch with each and every bite.

I’m such a sucker for a crunchy shell.

Just remember this weekend is Fourth of July soooooo you should probably make this because it’s pretty amazing and totally perfect for parties. Who doesn’t love coconut, lime, cheesecake and phyllo crunch?


Just remember that.

    I have yet to sign up for snapchat. I’m on the fence about it. It sounds fun, but it’s also one more sm channel to keep up with. Decisions! There’s no need to put thought into these bad boys. No doubt, I’d eat as many as I can hold in both hands.

    AND they are mini so I can pop like 6 in my mouth. Right? Also, can we snap reactions to The Bachelorette? 🙂

      Why are we not snapping bachelorette reactions? Are you on SnapChat? I’m about to follow you if so 😉

    62 degrees? Wow! I’d be freezing, except I do like it cold to sleep at night! These little bundles of paradise look and sound so delicious!

    Don’t you just love those mini fillo shells? They’re perfect for anything. I really love the sound of your filling. Coconut is my favorite!

    Holy moly girl! 62 degrees! Mine is around 68…

    I guess I need to get on the snapchat train, sigh. Also? The 62 degree house rule sounds right up my alley…as well as these cheesecakes!

    Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop — July 2, 2015 at 10:45 am

    While I don’t like the hot temperatures, 62 would be a bit too chilly for me! Although it would give me an excuse to snuggle under a blanket! These coconut lime cheesecake bites look perfect to me!

    What a fantastic idea. I love a dessert that can be pulled together in 30 minutes. That’s my kind of dessert.

    Dear Brandy, there is nothing better than bite size cheesecakes…these look beautiful and delightful. I admit I am not familiar with snapchat though my daughter often talks about it. I will have to get her to show me some time! Sounds like fun. Have a wonderful holiday weekend dear! xo, Catherine

    I am such an old lady, I downloaded snap chat but I just don’t understand it! Technology! 🙂 But! I do love these cheesecake bites! Delicious!

    I don’t wanna snap!!!! Watch, I’ll give in one day and be obsessed. I will, however, be all over these bites!

    I am on snapchat, my boys signed me up. I just keep forgetting to do it, I am still an instagram addict, so maybe I need to mix it up. Love these little cheesecakes, that they are no bake is even better, less work, more reward.

    Susan — July 2, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    I can’t give in to snapchat yet probably because I feel like I’m the old lady on there. However these cheesecake bites are perfect, no one wants to bake but that’s no reason not to have cheesecake in the summer.

    Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction — July 2, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    I’m all for keeping my house as cool as possible in the summer! No bake cheesecake is a favorite around here!

    Dee Dee (My Midlife Kitchen) — July 2, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    I love absolutely anything in those fillo cups! I always keep a box of those in my freezer for last minute appetizer needs, and now i can add this tasty dessert to that list!! Thanks!

    Brenda@Sugar-Free Mom — July 2, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    I’ve never used snapchat, guess I must get on it and see what all the fuss is about! I will be frozen for life if I had to live at 62 degrees, but then again I am always cold even on summer nights!

    Love this use for fillo cups. I recently was experimenting with some greek dishes and had no idea what do with the leftover fillo dough

    Perfect for summer AND for watching the chaos on The Bachelorette each Monday.

    The food photography in this post? Alllll the gorgeousness. I’m smitten with these photos. I’m not on board with snapchat yet, but I am certainly on board with no bake desserts! These look like the perfect refreshing little bite of dessert for a warm day!

    Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes — July 3, 2015 at 12:51 am

    I’ve never tried snapchat but it has me curious for a while now. Might have to jump on that train! Love these cheesecake bites – and perfect that they are done in under 30 minutes!

    These photos make me all kinds of happy. I love your photos. Always. But these are beyond stellar. Great recipe, great photos, great popsicle commentary, what more could we ask for.

    Snapchat, I don’t get it. But then I’ve never quite understood instagram either so there you go. Apparently I’m 90 years old and afraid of technology. Who knows. I keep thinking of doing videos because I’m so weird and my family thinks I’m hilarious. But they have to. Because I control the food consumption in this household. So it’s a crapshoot if my humour would be welcome anywhere else. I sing and dance way too much. And do voices. And give my animals running commentary, always.

    My hsuband is also a popsicle. It drives me nuts because I’m perfectly content if my house is at 75.

    Send me some of these!

    Cate | Chez CateyLou — July 6, 2015 at 3:17 pm

    a 62 degree house sounds absolutely lovely to me – I hate the heat too! So bring on the no-bake desserts! These little bites look totally scrumptious!
