This No-Bake Orange Yogurt Cheesecake is citrusy, light and rich.

It  takes 10 minutes to whip up the cheese filling with a food processor. Simply place it in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours or overnight. To make the yummy cheesecake look more impressive,  I used canned mandarin oranges with the jelly topping. Definitely a keeper for any occasion, and perfect for hot days too!

  • Hi Ann,
    Would like to check with u, how come the topping doesn’t seems to set after more than 2hours.
    I hv follow exactly the measurement indicated.
    0.5 teaspoon gelatin & 0.5 teaspoon jelly.
    Any particular jelly powder that u used.
    I use the konnyaku jelly powder.

    • Hi Catherine, I’m not sure you’re using the correct ingredient – agar agar powder -. Agar agar powder is a firm jelly that is usually available in the Asian grocery store. If you don’t have the agar agar powder, you can use 1/2 tablespoon of gelatin instead.

  • Hi there I only have gelatin leaves and not the powder. Do you have an idea how many I would need to use ? Thank you. Tara
