Creamy No-Bake Cheesecake Recipes
Ginger-Lime Icebox Cheesecake
Want to be the hero of your summer potluck? Bring this no-bake key lime cheesecake, and you'll have the most popular dish at the party. It only has six ingredients, but somehow, this easy icebox recipe manages to be a combo of cheesecake and key lime pie, all on top of a sweet gingersnap crust.
No-Bake Chocolate-Swirl Cheesecake
Our sweet and swirly five-step dessert features smooth layers of vanilla and dark chocolate on a crumbly graham cracker crust. The gorgeous swirls alone are decoration enough, but if you want, you can top this no-bake chocolate cheesecake with juicy fresh blackberries and raspberries.
Fresh Strawberry-Rhubarb Parfaits
We kept this no-bake strawberry cheesecake dessert simple (which is exactly what we want from spring and summer dessert recipes). Layer together fresh strawberries and rhubarb, cheesecake cream, and crunchy granola in a Mason jar for a dessert that tastes just like cheesecake in layered form. Oh, and did we mention it has no added sugar? Just natural sugars from fruit and honey.
We've got another use for that watermelon rind—making this super-cute no-bake strawberry cheesecake! This adorable summer dessert looks like a watermelon slice, but it's definitely more indulgent than a piece of fruit. Repurpose the rind to serve as an outer crust, and sprinkle chocolate chip "seeds" on top of the pink strawberry cheesecake.
Key Lime Cheesecake Bars
Got 30 minutes? That's all you need to make this tangy no-bake key lime cheesecake. In addition to the usual cream cheese, these no-bake cheesecake bars have an extra ingredient that helps make them fluffy and creamy: cottage cheese! It may sound odd to include in a cheesecake, but blending it together with cream cheese makes it so smooth it disappears.
Amaretti Cherry Cheesecake Pie
Pie or cheesecake? No need to choose. Our no-bake dessert has both! Featuring a fluffy brown sugar filling and an amaretti cookie crust, this easy dessert takes only three steps to make. Top the no-bake cheesecake pie with almonds and sugar-infused cherries before diving in.
Strawberry Cheesecake Tartlets
Don't be fooled by their adorable size. These no-bake cheesecake bites pack serious strawberry flavor. Adding almond extract to the filling gives it a subtle nuttiness, which you can bring out even more by sprinkling a few sliced almonds on top. If you want a more homemade feel, create the cookie crust from scratch, or speed things along with store-bought pastry cups.
Fresh raspberries or pomegranate seeds sweeten up the filling in this gorgeous no-bake lemon cheesecake, while crushed shortbread cookies create a crumbly crust. To make a pretty presentation for each slice, top with extra raspberries and twisty lemon zest slices.
Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake
This no-bake blueberry cheesecake is one of the chillest desserts around. The easy treat stars ice-cold blueberries, sweet vanilla filling, and a salty-sweet almond-pretzel crust. To make this no-bake cheesecake recipe look as stunning as possible, pile the blueberries on top of the finished dessert instead of mixing them in.
Berry Cheesecake Parfaits
A perfect parfait is all about the fruit. We like to use fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in our two-step twist on classic cheesecake that includes creamy Brie cheese. A drizzle of honey and crunchy toffee almonds make a tasty grand finale on top of this simple no-bake cheesecake recipe.
Test Kitchen Tip: If you want to make these parfaits ahead of time, stick to berries because apples, pears, and peaches will brown quickly.
Minty Cookies and Cream Tassies
Raspberry Cheesecake Shake
Instead of using a fork for this no-bake cheesecake recipe, grab a spoon or a straw! A chilly bottle of cream soda, red raspberries, and cream cheese turn a classic vanilla shake into a parlor-friendly treat. Just toss all the ingredients into a blender and enjoy.
Chocolate Cheesecake Bars
Chocolate + cheesecake. Need we say more? These ultra chocolaty whipped cheesecake bars feature three kinds of chocolate, flavored liqueur, and crushed sandwich cookies for the crust. To really ramp up the chocolate flavor in this no-bake cheesecake recipe, sprinkle the top with mini chocolate chips before chilling.
Tiny Raspberry Cheesecake Tarts
Prepackaged phyllo shells make preparing these liqueur-laced cheesecake tartlets extra easy. Simply brush each with chocolate, spoon in our luscious cheesecake filling, then top with raspberries and fresh mint. You can almost eat these no-bake mini cheesecakes in just a bite, so good luck stopping after one.
No-Bake Pumpkin-Swirl Cheesecake
When it comes to making this no-bake pumpkin cheesecake a showstopper, it's all about the layers. It begins with a buttery graham cracker crust followed by an orange-infused pumpkin pie filling. Swirls of white cream cheese create a mesmerizing finish, so you don't need any other topping.
Fresh blueberries are the star of this delicious dessert, but sweetened Brie and cream cheese are excellent supporting players. This beautiful cheesecake can be adapted to yield one large cake instead of individual portions—just place the blueberries on the bottom of a dish and spread the cheesecake cream on top. Or you can make this no-bake blueberry cheesecake in a Mason jar and take it on the go!
Apricot Cheesecake Tassies
Apricot brandy mixed into the cheesecake cream gives these treats their fruity flavor. And it's not sitting in a plain crust, either—we brushed the crust of these mini no-bake cheesecakes with melted chocolate, then cooled it into a hard shell to give this dessert an extra boost of indulgence.
Orange Swirled Cheesecake
This homemade no-bake cheesecake is decadent and gorgeous, but it's a little better for you than it appears at first glance. We made this healthier chilled dessert with reduced-fat cream cheese and Greek yogurt, so it's not quite as heavy as other cheesecake recipes. But when you taste this orange and vanilla treat, your taste buds won't know the difference.
