Strawberry Cheesecake in a delightful new way

Cheesecake  must be near the top of the best-desserts-in-the-world-list.  Almost every food website or blog, claim to have  “Best Cheesecake recipe”.  Some prefer their cheesecake baked, others  “fridged”, but there are very people I know who does not succumb to a slice of cheesecake.


Cheesecake is right at the top of my list, don’t know about yours, but if I had to  just randomly pick the top 10 desserts in the world, it would be something like this: (Not in any particular order)


Ice Cream




chocolate mousse



Creme Brûleé

Creme caramel


A good cheesecake is just so versatile, you can replace the digestive biscuits in your base with ginger biscuits for a totally different taste. Your cream cheese filling can be chocolate, coffee or fruit flavored, whatever you fancy. As long as you have a good base recipe to work from.

I worked with a Jewish lady  many years ago and she swore by her recipe, said it was an authentic Jewish cheesecake recipe. I did not argue with her, she was my boss after all and I had to bake the cheesecake in fear that she will ask me about it later. Well, I can tell you this much, I now swear by this recipe and everybody who makes this recipe, always reports back positively without me having to ask!!

In the week someone posted a picture of strawberries filled with cheesecake on Facebook. It was a picture form the Five Roses Facebook page, but it had no recipe. It was a winner immediately and people started sharing the recipe  like they owned it…. which is always a good thing with food, share and share alike! On further investigation, I found that various people have made these strawberries and I was the one sleeping under the proverbial rock.  I found it on The girl who ate everything and on Make it-love it to mention but two!

CheesecakeJust this morning I saw an old post of mine for a cheese-less  cheesecake and thought I needed to revive the old recipe and the photo…well now is as good as any time, so here then is my Strawberries filled with cheese-less lime cheesecake.

*I know the purists will have a problem with me calling it cheesecake when it is in actual fact not. but my thinking is that you can still the craving for cheesecake by playing a trick on those taste buds…… just play along for now!

Strawberries filled with Cheese-less Lime Cheesecake

makes about 20-25 strawberries


20-25 big strawberries

250 ml Orley Whip

½ of a 379 g  tin condensed milk

zest and juice of 1 lime

juice of 1 lemon


Take a very sharp pairing knife and hull the strawberries and hollow them out even bigger. Be careful not to cut through the bottoms. Keep the strawberries in the fridge and mash up the hollowed out bits. Mix the condense milk, juices and zest as well as the strawberries. Whip the Orley whip until it forms stiff peaks and fold into the condensed milk mixture. Allow to set for a while. Spoon into a piping bag and fill the strawberries. Place the tops of the strawberries back on and serve.


Tomorrow morning just after the 9 o’clock news, I will be in my seat on RSG ready to share the recipe with you. I will also take you into the kitchens of other bloggers, chefs and interesting South Africans this year. So buckle up, it is going to be an awesome ride. Tune in 100-104FM or listen online here!

    *wipes drool off keyboard* I’ll take a handful please. I’m already extrapolating so I can use the whole tin of condensed milk but that’s 2 boxes of orley whip which means there will be too much cheesecake to tempt me into just eating and eating. I’ve also seen this idea a lot 🙂 x
