Fast & Easy Jello No Bake Cheesecake

Who doesn’t love fast and easy when it comes to desserts?  And who doesn’t like cheesecake? With the flavour of the Jello added to the cheesecake filling this is a refreshing, delicious summer time dessert!

Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and you are ready to go!



These are the ingredients I used to make the cheesecake.


I started with a graham cracker crumb crust.  To me that is the only base for cheesecake.

I mixed together the graham crumbs, brown sugar and melted margarine in a large bowl and then pressed the mixture into my pie plate.  I put the crust in the fridge to chill while I made the filling.


In a small bowl I combined the Jello powder with 1/2 cup of boiling water and stirred until dissolved.  I let it sit until it reached room temperature.


In the bowl of my stand mixer I placed the softened cream cheese and thawed Cool Whip and mixed until it was well combined.


Next I added the dissolved (room temperature) Jello to the cream cheese mixture.


And mixed until fully combined before pouring it into my prepared graham crumb crust.


I let it chill in the fridge for about 2 hours before slicing and serving.
