No Bake Italian Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

When the guys from method asked me to collaborate on their new #FearNoMess ( project the first thing I thought was: I can finally show my readers what happens behind the scenes in my kitchen when I’m making a new dessert. Yes, because the result that appears in the final pictures is accurately prepared and doesn’t show you all the work behind it like the styling, the lighting, the attention and the time required to obtain the perfect shot. For this project, I decided to prepare a dessert that could provide some relief from the scorching heat that has arrived in New York and after some thinking, I chose to go with cheesecake! I really took this project seriously that’s why I had to make the recipe twice.. the first time I made a REAL MESS


My personal version of the cheesecake is based on an Italian recipe and it does not require the use of the oven. In addition, ricotta cheese is added to the traditional cream cheese to make it lighter. I decided to use the sprinkles too, because they bring a summer touch to the dessert and lately they have been my go-to ingredient when it comes to garnishing!

Since I first moved to the States, method has caught my attention. I fell in love immediately with the stylish and colorful design of their bottles and the mild fragrance of the soaps. On top of that, I discovered that the formula of method products is animal friendly; this is a vital requirement for me since my lovely Brownie (my chocolate Labrador who is currently with my fiancé) is coming to live with us in New York shortly and her safety is now my priority.

Cleaning the mess left in the kitchen after preparing this recipe (and I mean it!) was no longer a pesky task with method. My favorite fragrance is grapefruit, with that note of blood orange + cassis, which I absolutely love and it adds a special scent to my cooking utensils.

Now set your imagination free and don’t be afraid to make a mess in the kitchen!
