Easy No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe
NO BAKE is my favorite phrase when it comes to desserts. Baking still makes me nervous (yes, still), so if I can get an amazing dessert without turning on the oven, I’m all for it! Every part of this no bake pumpkin cheesecake recipe is made without heat. Really! The crust, the filling, and the whipped topping are all just a matter of mixing and cooling.
You do have to have some patience with this no bake dessert, since the cooling and setting part takes hours. BUT it’s so easy. You can prepare this well ahead of time, set it in the fridge, and not think about it until it’s time to serve.
Graham Cracker Crust Recipe for Cheesecake
I made a simple graham cracker crust for this pumpkin pie cheesecake. All you have to do is crush up some graham crackers, mix the crumbs with butter, mold it into a pie plate, and then let it set in the refrigerator. It’s the perfect crust for pumpkin cheesecake and adds just the right flavor! You will need to prep this crust at least a few hours before you start on the cheesecake mixture, that way it has time to set before you fill it. Learn how to make graham cracker crust here.
Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream
The Pumpkin Spice Whipped Cream is the best way (the only way really) to top off this no bake cheesecake. It’s sooooo fluffy and delicious. The pumpkin spice flavor is just amazing, and it is a great complement to the cheesecake filling. Get the full recipe for the pumpkin flavored whipped cream recipe here.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake
Our pumpkin cheesecake recipe is made in three parts: the crust, the filling, and the topping. We’ve gone over the graham cracker crust and the pumpkin whipped cream, so now let’s talk about the cheesecake filling!
How to make pumpkin cheesecake filling:
- Beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until fully combined.
- Add in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, and continue beating.
- Then add in the whipping cream and continue mixing, then beat on high speed until peaks form.
To assemble the pumpkin pie cheesecake:
- Make the graham cracker crust FIRST, with plenty of time for it to set in the refrigerator.
- When the crust is ready, make the cheesecake filling (as outlined above). Pour the mixture into the crust.
- Spray a piece of plastic wrap with non-stick spray then use it to cover the cheesecake.
- Set the cheesecake in the refrigerator for at least 6-8 hours, or leave it overnight.
- When the cheesecake is ready, make the pumpkin spice whipped cream.
- Take the cheesecake out of the pan and remove the plastic wrap, then slice and top with the whipped cream.
While this definitely isn’t a “whip together at the last minute” kind of dessert (you’ll need to make it at least a day before), it still so simple overall to put this thing together. And it comes out so delicious. Check the recipe card below for full instructions.
Can I freeze pumpkin cheesecake?
Since your no bake cheesecake is already cooled, you can easily prep it for freezing. To freeze the entire cheesecake, place it on a piece of cardboard, a baking tray, or something else sturdy. Place it in the freezer uncovered for a few hours until it becomes firm. Then you can wrap it in plastic wrap and aluminium foil (place that inside of a resealable bag for extra protection), and the place in the freezer. It will keep for a couple of months.
When you’re ready to eat the pumpkin pie cheesecake, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
How long does a no bake cheesecake last in the fridge?
This no bake pumpkin cheesecake recipe will last in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. If you don’t plan on eating it all within that time, consider freezing it (or a few slices of it) as outlined above.
I hope you make this no bake Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake a part of your holiday celebrations this year. It’s such a delicious treat, something everyone will love! This is a great dessert idea for Thanksgiving! If you need another no bake dessert, try this Banana Split Pie.
