A fluffy, smooth strawberry cheesecake infused with marshmallow crème. This is the best no-bake strawberry pie that you will ever have!
I understand that some of you are still digging out from last week’s snow storm, but we are in full Strawberry season here. This past weekend, I (along with Dorothy and Lindsay) hosted a group of food bloggers here in Southern California. I have so much more to tell you about it this later this week! While we ate a TON of food, it seemed everyone was particularly impressed with the fresh fruit! I love to use fresh fruit when it comes to dessert!
This Easy Strawberry Marshmallow Pie tastes like a fresh strawberry milkshake. It it a no-bake strawberry cheesecake that is mixed with a jar of Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Crème. This gives this dessert the most lightest and fluffy texture.
Marshmallow pies are what I like to call “next level” when it comes to no-bake pies. The marshmallow crème is filled with air and when mixed into pie, that fluffiness is distributed throughout the pie. It is a glorious thing. I have a Biscoff Marshmallow Pie and also a Nutella version as well.
I like to make this pie in a spring form pan because I like the sides to be straight, but guess what, a store-bought graham cracker crust would work out just as well. The graham cracker crust is so easy to make. You just need to pulverize the graham crackers in a food processor until they are crumbs. Then you melt some butter over top and stir until the crumbs are well coated. Then you just press them into the pan. It seems like a daunting task, but you just need to be sure the crust is wet enough to press in the pan.
Berries can be tricky to work with because they can be very wet, and change the texture and integrity of the dessert. Whenever I work with berries, I always wash and dry them (as best as I can) before adding to the dessert. I also spoon them into the mixing bowl and opposed to pouring them in. That way, you can control amount of liquid that you are putting into your batter (as opposed to pouring it all in).
Once all of your ingredients are mixed for the filling, you just need to pour them into your crust and let it sit for a couple hours to get firm. You can decorate this pie any way you see fit. I sprinkled it with additional strawberries and whipped cream. You just might want to keep this dessert for yourself because it is that good.
