This is a recipe for making a no bake cheesecake. The recipe is only simple ingredients and can be made almost entirely in a blender.
1-2 Packages of sweet crackers (like graham crackers)
1/3 cup melted butter (or margarine)
2 cups cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 package of cream cheese (250g | 9oz)
Flavoring or topping of choice
To make the crust, you will want to crush the crackers until it is a powder. Add the powder to a pie tin (or your pan of choice) and add the melted butter. Mix until consistent then pack with a spoon.

Add the two cups (chilled) cream to the blender. Blend for 15-30 seconds while shaking the blender up and down. Blend until whipped.

Mix in the sugar.
Cut the cream cheese into small blocks and put it in the blender with the cheese. Add the flavoring you would like for your cake (for my cake I added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. Other suggestions might be cocoa powder, peanut butter, citrus extract, peppermint extract, candy cane, etc...).
Mix together until consistent. Once consistent, pour onto crust.
Refrigerate before serving (I will often put it in the freezer to speed up the process so I can eat it sooner, if you do this make sure you don't do it too long or it will be difficult to cut).
I have done this where I didn't even bother to whip the cream; I just added everything in the blender. While this seemed to work, the texture seems just a bit better if you whip the cream first.
Below is a video of me mixing the cream and cream cheese together. Below the video are photos of the entire process.
