This creamy no bake cheesecake recipe is a quick & easy dessert recipe. It’s the perfect dessert to make when you crave a little something sweet. Perhaps best of all, it’s the perfect size for one person.

One of the things I love about this no bake cheesecake is that it takes minutes to make. You don’t really need to chill it. If you choose to not chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator, the delicious filling is more mousse-like.

Chilling the cheesecake will deliver a cheesecake that is a bit more firm in consistency.

  1. I’m so glad your camera didn’t break!!! I have a couple lens that need to go in for repair and a body…one was dropped on the garage floor. 🙁

    This looks so tempting! I love cheesecake, but my family isn’t as enamoured with it as I am, and the idea of making it for myself as a treat is very tempting!

  2. Dear Joanie – I loved your post. Hearing about the Outlander series. Slowing down. Reading a book. I’m still in that somewhat frenetic stage of life with car pools and four kids at home. But I needed the reminder to inhale, exhale. Thank you. Perhaps I will make this cheesecake for one. For me. (!)

    1. Allie, our house has become busy once again since our son moved back and transferred to a college near our home and another son moved back to Houston for a job change. Our once quiet house is buzzing with activity and I’m not at all complaining. I kind of missed it. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment.

  3. I haven’t read an entire book since I had my first baby… 5+ years ago! Eeek! BUT, I have had cheesecake! haha 😉 And there’s always room for one more… please pass me a spoon!

  4. Slowing down and relaxing and enjoying life is something we can all do more often. I know I’m guilty of being busy all the time with work, family, school, sports, church…the list keeps going. Having an easy no bake cheesecake treat for one sounds like the perfect way to enjoy a quiet moment!!! Love how easy this is!

  5. Finding myself single after many years of being a Mom and Wife, it is sooo great to find a yummy recipe like Cheesecake For One; sometimes you not only enjoy the dessert – you need it! Will be trying this lovely dessert soon after a quick trip to the market for ingredients. Thanks, Joanie!

  6. That face! 🙂 Slowing down is definitely something I need a reminder of often – so glad your camera wasn’t broken. And oh my goodness, I love how simple this dessert for one is, exactly what I need!

  7. I’m not sure why – but I cried big ole alligator tears reading this post! You are such a great momma Joanie and it shows! I was also thinking of my little ones and how fast they are growing.. and that it will be no time before they are in college. Oh gosh. I need this cheesecake for comfort! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Kelley. Kids grow up way too fast, I’m trying to keep my youngest “little” for as long as I can. I think she’s enjoying it too.

  8. Joanie, I had to laugh when you described your daughter’s reaction to your escapades – I know that look and the eye-rolling so well! The recipe looks fabulous – and without eggs, it’s a no-bake winner for a quick dessert.

  9. Hardest thing to do sometimes is slow down. I totally can relate. We are empty nesters and it really was a shock to not have my entire day filled with running from place to place. I have gotten better at saying “no” and not over scheduling.

  10. Good for you for slowing down! It’s so important to do squeeze in some relaxing but it’s just so hard to actually do sometimes. I love this recipe so much! I love finding a no-bake cheesecake that doesn’t call for pudding mix!

    I always make a huge cheesecake because I own a 10-inch pan. I just bought a 6-inch pan but now I know I can make individual size servings for people when I do not want to go all crazy!
