💭 Tips

  • Be sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl while mixing the cheesecake filling.
  • A hand or stand mixer are the best ways to mix this cheesecake batter.

⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

What is no-bake cheesecake?

It’s a type of cheesecake that uses pudding or whipped topping to create a light, airy filling rather than eggs and flour for leavening.

What’s the difference between cheesecake and no-bake cheesecake?

Baked cheesecake uses eggs and/or flour to thicken the cheesecake batter and is baked in the oven. No-bake cheesecake is actually more like a mousse that’s made with whipped cream or pudding and cream cheese.

Why can’t I freeze cheesecake for longer than a month?

Over time, ice crystals form in the cheesecake no matter how well it’s wrapped. After about a month, cheesecake will start to become grainy from those ice crystals.
