No Bake Cheesecake in a Jar

1 package cream cheese (8 oz)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (can be modified to taste)
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
1 graham cracker crust, crumbled*
Filling of choice (I like strawberry, see recipe below)
 Place a base of graham cracker crust into bottom of  jar. You can press it down it using a measure spoon.  Then spoon about 1/2 cup of filling into each jar then add the fruit filling of choice.  Lastly, refrigerate for a few hours and serve.  
Strawberry Topping


  • 1 pint strawberries, cleaned and stemmed
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Cut about 1/3 of the strawberries in half. In a saucepan over medium high heat, combine strawberries, sugar and vanilla. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. In a blender, puree about 1/3 of sauce, then mix back into remainder. Store in refrigerator.
