Cheesecake to save the day!

Perhaps the sweltering heat and your seemingly endless party to-do list have left you flustered, and the last thing you want to do is stress over baking a hot Fourth of July celebratory cake. Well, stop stressing because we have the perfect simple and make-ahead idea to save the day — a no-bake Fourth of July cheesecake.

Almost everyone adores a good cheesecake, and the cool and light texture is perfect to combat the high summer temperatures, when pulling a hot cake out of the oven is the last thing you want to do.

This cake is almost too easy — even the crust is no-bake! The filling is a combination of Greek yogurt, cream cheese, whipped cream, and sugar, while the crust is made of graham crackers, melted butter, sugar, and salt. Make it a few days before your party and store it in the fridge until guests arrive. Top with red and blue sliced berries and you’re done! For an exact recipe and step-by-step tutorial, check out this video by Everyday Food and get cooking. Or in this case, not cooking.
