No-bake Gluten Free Raspberry Cheesecake in a Jar

My husband has been having a huge sweet tooth lately and has been asking me to try new desserts. He saw a recipe for a Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar and wanted to know if I could do my magic and make it food friendly for our family. He even went as far and bought a basket of raspberries too!

Nevertheless… I worked my magic and came up with a pretty good recipe I think. And it was tasty too!!
