  • Beat the cream cheese in an electric mixer until soft and lump-free.

Tips from 7UP

Top the No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake with the whipped topping of your choice and a maraschino cherry. Or add fresh or frozen (thawed) fruit. Finally, if you’re feeling fancy, make a fruit syrup and drizzle as an accent over each slice before serving.
