The reward of a summer day could be light, fine, cool dessert, served in peace in the shade of a generous terrace. For such moments I chose a no-bake recipe, delicious, and worth the effort.

This no-bake cheesecake recipe with apricot and cherry jams, and dark chocolate is perfect for the weather outside, especially since we are in the middle of the season for these fruits. I love both fruits since childhood and I love apricot jam (I do it every year).

Apricots are perfect in desserts because they are sweet-sour and very fragrant. And because it’s summer and it’s very hot, no-bake desserts are exactly what we need.

They are tasty and easy to make and there is no need to turn on the oven and stay warm. In addition, we can do it in the evening, and the next day when we need it, it is only good to enjoy. It does not require too many ingredients or sophisticated techniques.

It’s an easy dessert and suitable for everyone.

Today I chose to combine apricots with cherries and dark chocolate. I warmly recommend this combination, it’s insane!

The base is a classic specific to cheesecakes, consisting of digestive biscuits and butter. For the filling, I used Mascarpone cream, unsweetened whipped cream, apricot puree, cherry jam, melted dark chocolate, vanilla essence, lemon juice, and gelatin.

The unsweetened whipped cream must be cold from the fridge, otherwise, it will not beat and will not get that fluffy and aerated texture. We end with the apricot jam that gives personality to the cheesecake and completes the palette of tastes.

For the decoration, I opted for halves and slices of apricots and cherries.

Cherries, these red fruits, red or black, are real treasures for health. Cherries are not only tasty. You can consider them a natural remedy for health and help for the body. When consumed regularly, they can be real “drugs” that fight against stress, bacteria, but also other diseases.

With an aromatic and sweet taste, cherries can successfully replace sweets, chocolate, and even candy. They can be consumed at any time of the day, including in the evening, because they contain melatonin.

The red color of cherries is given by strong antioxidants (anthocyanin pigments), and they have a beneficial role in our health.

Cherries have in the composition substances that turn them into very important drugs, being true fighters in the fight against diseases caused by current stress.

Anthocyanins have an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant role, melatonin is a hormone with a very important role in a peaceful sleep and hydroxycinnamic acid will help protect your stomach lining against bacteria and microbes that can cause gastroenteritis.

Ambassadors of summer, the little cherries are composed of over 70% water, just like us, while the rest of the composition is a real treasure – the complex of B vitamins (B1, B2, and B6), which will give you a lot of energy, vitamin C, and minerals: magnesium, without which you would always feel depressed and tired, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, pantothenic acid, and iron.

The cherries contain a few calories, 63 kcal / 100 grams for the sweet ones and around 50 kcal / 100 grams for the bitter ones.
