Rainbow Sherbet Cheesecake
Are you one of those people like me, that calls it Sherbert? I learned a long time ago I had been saying it incorrectly but once you’ve been using a word for roughly two decades, it’s hard to stop!
I do love the sherbet flavor so whether I’m saying it right or wrong, I’m totally digging this dessert.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Jello. In flavors cherry, lime and orange.
- Cream Cheese. Make sure to let this soften to room temperature before blending.
- Heavy Cream.
- Graham Crackers. You can also now find the crumbs already box for you in the baking aisle.
How to Make Sherbet Cheesecake
- Make Crust. Mix crumbs, sugar and butter. Press the crust into the bottom of a springform pan lined with parchment paper.
- Make Cream. Whip heavy cream and sugar together until stiff peaks form. Place the bowl in the fridge.
- Make Jello. Place each of the Jello flavors in small bowls and add boiling water to each. Let the Jello begin to cool.
- Make Cheesecake. Separate the whipped cream into three bowls and add each Jello flavor to a different bowl to make three flavors.
- Layer. On top of the crust, layer the green cheesecake mixture and refrigerate until set. It usually takes about 45 minutes. Continue the same steps with the other two colors.
- Enjoy. Once all layers are set, remove the cake from the pan, slice and enjoy.
Keep this dessert refrigerated for 3-5 days. The colors will start to run together after a few days but don’t worry, it’s still delicious!
You can add some dollops of icing around the edges and even add some rainbow sprinkles for decoration. I think this will make a really fun summer birthday dessert.
