No Bake Strawberry Milkshake Cheesecake is creamy, smooth, bursting with strawberry flavor cheesecake with festive M&M’s worthy of any occasion! This gorgeous pink beauty is the perfect choice of cake for Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day is coming and when I was grocery shopping recently, I come across these Valentine colored M&Ms. I was inspired to make something with them. I always enjoy the fun festive M&Ms and Strawberry Milkshake Cheesecake.
One of the things I love most about Valentine’s Day is all the sweet treats that go along with it and I couldn’t wait to get started on my newest creation. I have made everything from Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls, Valentine Red Velvet Cheesecake Pops, Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies, Valentine’s Day Cherry Hand Pies, and Valentines White Chocolate Hearts…
This recipe is perfect for everyone who loves quick and no bake cheesecakes and I really like it too. Nice, creamy, and very delicious cheesecake which you will like at the first bite! Everyone likes this cake and especially when they see the look. They are super easy to do and don’t take a lot of time.
