No-bake cheesecake recipes

by Rachel Deeley

published on 14 March 2024

Rich yet light, fluffy yet smooth, creamy yet flavourful – there’s nothing quite like tucking in to a good slice of cheesecake.

But more than just being immensely enjoyable to eat, cheesecakes are wonderful desserts to make at home – not least because they don’t even require you to turn on the oven. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best no-bake cheesecake recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth, from decadent chocolate and hazelnut to zesty lemon.

Looking for more easy no-bake recipes? Eloise Head’s latest book Fitwaffle’s No-Bake Baking is packed with easy oven-free recipes including mug cakes, sweets, and, of course, plenty of cheesecakes.
