Fruity Cream Cheese Dessert

A recipe post!

During summer time, I definitely bake less often.  Even though I stay inside the AC-cooled house, I just do not feel like baking when it is so hot outside.  This is a non-bake cheesecake I have been making for years.  I used to make this whenever I have leftover heavy cream that needed to be used up.  But lately I am making this more often because Momo likes this dessert.  I do not give chocolates and candies to my little girl, and she is not into cakes I bake.  But she is a cheese-lover and she likes this dessert.  
I experimented few tries to make this without heavy cream, to cut unnecessary fat and cost.  And now I think I like this new recipe even better.

1/2 cup Water 
7g (1 packet) Gelatin 
1  8oz Cream Cheese 
1/3 cup Yogurt 
1/4 cup Sugar 
1/3 cup Milk 
1/2 tbs Lemon Juice 
1 tbs Honey 
Choice of Fruits -I normally use half of 12 -16 oz bag of frozen fruits

1. Soften gelatin in water,  stir over low heat until completely dissolved.
2. Mix all ingredients in a blender.
3. Pour the mixture into a glass, cake pan, etc of your choice.
4. Refrigerate for 1 hour or more, until firm.

My favorite fruits to use are mango and blueberries.  My hubby and Momo like strawberries.  

As long as I keep frozen fruits and cream cheese in stock, I can make this dessert anytime I want.  All I need to do is mix everything in a blender, so it takes less than 5 minutes to make (not counting refrigeration time).

Note: Fresh tropical fruits do not work with gelatin.  I have not had problems with frozen mango, but canned or cooked tropical fruits should work if your mixture does not get firm.  

Linking up to those fun parties.
