This whole winter, I complained that it lasted forever.

It was cold and snowy and, overall, just a huge drain on my personal happiness. At one point, I told my husband that if it snowed one more time, we were moving somewhere warm.

I didn’t care where we moved, just as long as a Trader Joe’s was nearby. Rational, right?

Well, the weather is starting to warm up, so now I feel like I’m about to die. It’s not hot enough to turn on the air conditioning, but my house has zero airflow, so it has difficulty staying cool.

I’m unsure why airflow is not considered when building a house, but engineers (architects?) must get on that.

My home is like a jail cell with zero breezes. Plus, at night, I’m forced (ok, forced is a strong word) to sleep at the foot of the bed with the fan blowing on my face.

I look like I belong in a bad 1980s music video with all my hair flying around. If you think I don’t know, I sound crazy, I know. I cannot handle being even a little bit hot #firstworldproblems

Hey are you a big fan of all things passion fruit? Why not give this passion fruit margarita a try!

No Bake Passion Fruit Cheesecake Recipe by Nutmeg Nanny

So, what does a girl do when roasting in her house? She makes something no bake.

No oven = no added heat.

This cheesecake is super creamy (the way I like it!) and has just a touch of lime flavor.

The delicious passion fruit on top is so over-the-top amazing that I don’t even know where to begin.

If you have never had fresh passion fruit, it can only be described as sweet and tart. It cuts the super cream cheese flavor of the cheesecake without overpowering the whole dish.


No Bake Passion Fruit Cheesecake

This no bake passion fruit cheesecake is the perfect balance of sweet, citrus and tart. If you have never had fresh passion fruit before you are in for a treat.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes plus chilling time


For crust:
1-1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted

For cheesecake:
16 ounces cream cheese
1 lime zested
1/2 lime juiced
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
6 fresh passion fruits


For crust:
In a small mixing bowl add graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Mix together until the mixture is moistened.

Press into a 9-inch pie plate or press into single serving mason jars.

Add the pie to fridge so the crust hardens.

For cheesecake:
In the bowl of an electric mixer add cream cheese, lime zest and lime juice. Mix together on medium high speed until smooth.

Pour in heavy cream and start incorporating into the cream cheese mixture. It's best to start slow and work your way up in speed. If you try to go too fast at once it will make a mess.

Once the heavy cream is combined turn the speed up to high and beat for about 3 minutes until the mixture is thick and creamy.

Pour in sugar and continue to beat for another minutes until combined.

Carefully spread the mixture on top of the crust (or into jars) and let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours but can be left overnight as well.

When you are ready to serve the cheesecake cut open the passion fruit and pour across the top of the cheesecake.

A bad 80's video huh. I can identify. I do not sleep well if I am too hot. If I had to lay or is it lie----at the foot of my bed to catch some cool, I would. However making this cheesecake would be a wonderful alternative. I have a passion for passion fruit. Not a very original word joke, but I am tired and it's the best I can do.

We have negligible air flow either, but mostly because we can't open the windows. There are no screens and pigeons sit outside them all day every I can just see one flying into my apartment!

No bake sounds like a good compromise, though. Especially where cheesecake is concerned! Love the tropical passionfruit topping!

I hear ya. I actually DID put one of the ac in upstairs because I just could not deal. Then the next day it dropped to 50. Figures. I swear I complain if it's sunny, rainy, or snowy...

However these cheesecakes would make super happy!
