No-bake matcha Oreo mini cheesecakes


Still looking for another simple yet delightful dessert to make for your Mother's Day party ?! Look no further !

These no-bake minis are pretty easy to do and if you love matcha in any form , even the " unhealthy " version , this cake is for you ! 

Can't find matcha Oreos in your neck of the woods ?! Just use the original one and add in some good quality matcha powder , hopefully , you have at least this kind of tea in your stash ....


Remember the no-bake strawberry Oreo minis ? This is almost the same recipe except that it's the matcha version . I used gelatin powder instead of sheets and changed the instruction a bit .

I love the balance of flavor of this cake , the sweetness is just enough and in every bite , you can taste and smell the wonderful matcha !

Did I convince you , matcha lovers ?! lol  


Recipe adapted from Lisa Magazine , Hongkong with some tweaks 

Makes 12 mini cheesecakes ( 2 by 1 1/4-inch each ) 

For the cookie base : 

130 grams Oreo cookies ( with filling )  
30 grams salted butter , melted 

* You can either use a food processor or put the cookies in a plastic bag and bash it with rolling pin . Combine cookie crumbs and butter together and mix well . Press mixture into 12 2x1-1/4-inch loose-bottom tins , generous 1 1/2 tablespoons in each tin . Put in the freezer until needed . 

For the filling : 

250 grams cream cheese , at room temperature 
2/3 cup condensed milk 
3 teaspoons / 1 tablespoon gelatin powder
2 tablespoons water 
150 ml chilled double cream  
1 tablespoon matcha powder
100 grams matcha Oreo bits , coarsely chopped

* In a mixing bowl , whisk cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth , set aside .

* Pour water in a small bowl and sprinkle with gelatin powder ( it will turn spongy right away ) , whisk with fork . Place the bowl into the wok / pan with hot water , stir until gelatin is dissolved completely .

* Beat together double cream and matcha powder until soft peaks form . 

* Pour melted gelatin into the cream cheese mixture , stir until well combined . Add in the matcha whipped cream , mix thoroughly then stir in the chopped matcha Oreos . 

* Divide filling into the prepared tins and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight . 

* The best way to remove a no-bake cheesecake is to use a hair dryer , blow the sides of the tin and the cheesecake will pop out easily  . Or use a clean small tea towel , soak it into warm water , wring it off and wrap it around the tin for few seconds . 

* Serve cheesecakes straight from the fridge .

    1. Hi Shee , you can either use teaspoon or tablespoon in measuring that gelatin powder :D 1 tablespoon equals 3 teaspoons
