Baked cheesecake is always good, but try making this no-bake cheesecake with a hint of green tea.

Course Dessert
Cuisine Japanese
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 cups


  • 7 oz Cream Cheese Room Temperature
  • 1.5 tsp Gelatin
  • 1/4 cup Hot Water about 176 F
  • 5.5 Tbsp Plain Yogurt
  • 1/3 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder


  1. Beat cream cheese in a medium bowl with electric hand mixer until creamy.

  2. In a separate bowl or cup, mix hot water and gelatin powder.
  3. Add yogurt, matcha powder, sugar, and gelatin mix to the cream cheese and mix well with whisk or electric hand mixer.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream until it forms soft peaks (when you lift the whisk, it should form a peak that rises but slightly bends at the top.)
  5. Add whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and gently mix.
  6. Scoop the cheese mixture and portion into 3 to 4 small glass/plastic cups. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for about 3 hours until firm.
  7. Use tea strainer or sifter to sprinkle matcha powder. (Note: matcha powder tastes bitter, so make sure not to sprinkle too much.)
