If you’re looking for some easy no-bake cheesecake recipes that won’t take up too much time and require little ingredients but will still be delicious, then this list is perfect!

What’s the Difference In No-Bake Cheesecake & Baked Cheesecake?

The texture and density. The biggest difference between no-bake cheesecake vs baked cheesecake (besides the cooking method) is the texture. A baked cheesecake tends to have a lighter, more airy texture with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

No-bake cheesecakes tend to be denser and have a more concentrated flavor. No-bake cheesecakes are also smooth and creamy. So while baked cheesecakes are fluffy and light, no-bake cheesecakes are dense and for lack of a better word “heavy”. They both taste amazing regardless!

Is no-bake cheesecake better than baked cheesecake?

Nope! Both no-bake cheesecake and traditional baked cheesecake offer their own plus and minuses. In our eyes they are pretty much two different desserts that just share a lot of similarities – like brother and sister! Both taste great and since the texture is different it’s really personal preference when it comes to picking which you like better.

What Is A Good Non-Dairy Substitute For Cream Cheese In Cheesecake?

Vegan cream cheese is the perfect substitute for traditional dairy cream cheese in cheesecake. If you are looking to make your no-bake cheesecake dairy free it’s easier than ever to find products that will help you accomplish this. Pretty much every grocery store carries vegan cream cheese now so it’s just a simple swap and you’re ready to go!

How long does it take a no-bake cheesecake to set?

It will take your no-bake cheesecake at least 6 hours to set, but 12 is preferable. You really want to let it set overnight if possible. If you dont’ mind a looser texture you can cut it down to 3-4 hours, but for optimal results it needs at least 6 hours to set.

Why is my No-Bake Cheesecake not firm?

It’s hard to say, but it is most likely due to the type of cream cheese you used. You want to make sure you use a full fat cream cheese as it tends to set up better. Cream cheese with lower fat content contains more water and can be runny when over worked. You’re less likely to run into that problem when using the full fat version. If you happen to have some Knox flavorless gelatin on hand you can add a little into your runny filling and let it firm overnight.
