30 No Bake Cheesecake Recipes

No Bake Cheesecake Recipes are easy to make

This is a statement that I don’t make very often. Making a no-bake cheesecake usually requires a no-bake crust, a no-bake cream cheese filling, and a top.

The ingredients get mixed together, and there is little interaction with them. You might have to melt the butter in the microwave and pour it over the crumbs that will create the crust. You might have to bloom some gelatine to add to your cream cheese mixture, melt chocolate for the top, or cut some fruits.

People like to make these no-bake cheesecakes during the summer when nobody wants to heat the oven. However, many don’t enjoy baking or have baking skills, so that they will prefer a no-baked version of their favorite dessert.

For both baked and non-baked cheesecake recipes, you will need a springform pan. This type of pan has removable walls and it is perfect not only for cheesecake but for quiche recipes, layered cakes, entremets, or even coffee cakes.

If you want to make an individual cheesecake, then you will need to use some sort of a dessert bowl for layering.

Bake versus No-Bake Cheesecake- what is the difference?

A baked cheesecake has a sturdier, firmer texture, while a no-bake one is creamier and softer. Some no-bake cheesecakes are made with gelatin, which always helps keep the cake in a nicer shape.

Do I need to refrigerate a no-bake cheesecakes?

Absolutely yes. Anything that is made with dairy needs refrigeration. Also, while each recipe might be different, most no-bake cheesecakes will need to set for at least four hours in the refrigerator before you can get a sliceable cake.

Can I freeze a no-bake cheesecake?

I do not recommend freezing a no-bake cheesecake to set. That step is done in the refrigerator and could take between 4 and 12 hours, depending on the recipe. However, you can freeze a no-bake cheesecake to enjoy later. After it sets in the refrigerator, wrap the whole pan in plastic wrap and then one layer of aluminum foil. It will stay nice in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the refrigerator and serve.


Everything you read until now in this article is for general no-bake cheesecake recipes. I suggest you always read the instructions a few times for any recipe you might want to try. It is very important to understand the steps you need to follow.

Whatever you choose from this list, you can be assured that you will be satisfied. I chose these recipes with care, and I am sure you will find one to suit your needs. Happy no-baking! 🙂
