New England Summers can be hit or miss weather wise. Thankfully this year, the weather has been pretty spectacular, with only a handful of days being cool or overly rainy. That means we’ve been spending plenty of time outside and plenty of time not wanting to turn on the oven. Even growing up, hot days always meant easy quick dinners or desserts that didn’t require turning the oven on and heating up the house.

So what’s a girl to do when she’s craving cheesecake in the middle of Summer? Skip the oven! This egg-free, no-bake cheesecake is where it’s at! I know you probably have a banana sitting on your counter, screaming at you, begging to be used in a totally easy and scrumptious way too!

    Yum! Does the banana need to be super ripe or is a new banana fine to use?

    • Rachel — July 27th, 2014 @ 7:42 am

      The more ripe it is, the easier it is to mash and get super smooth. But, so long as you’re able to get it smooth, I’d say new-ish would be fine.

    Looks good but what is frozen topping ? Is this availeble in belgium ?

    • Rachel — August 3rd, 2014 @ 9:20 am

      I’m guessing it is not. However, you can try using homemade whipped cream in its place. Just be aware that I haven’t tried that method, so I can’t attest to it’s results but the flavor should be similar.

    These look wonderful, can they be made ahead and frozen?

    • Rachel — March 1st, 2016 @ 9:32 am

      The safest bet would be to chill and not freeze.
