EASY No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake

I remember making this NO BAKE cheesecake for a boy I thought I was in love with as a teenager. I was trying to win his heart through his stomach.  EEK.....
Easy Raspberry Cheesecake recipe

When he proposed a year later, I decided he wasn't really who I wanted after all...snicker....Typical fickled 19 year old, right?  Yeah.  But he wasn't wrong to love my cheesecake.  No Way. 

I buy the graham cracker crust for the Raspberry Cheesecake....It's just EASIER! 

I like to take shortcuts where I can so I bought the graham cracker crust pie crust. You could easily make one too with butter, sugar and graham crackers, but why bother? Make life easier on yourself! Plus the clear plastic top makes a great pie carrier.  

Easy No Bake Cheesecake Recipe:

  • 10 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • fruit toppings of your choice
  • Directions:
Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice in a bowl until smooth.Then whip up the cream, and then add it into the cream cheese mixture.  Spread the cheesecake  into your graham cracker pie crust and put in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight to set up. 
I LOVE this raspberry topping for a cheesecake...It is the most popular too!
I helped serve at my niece's wedding reception. They had cheesecake with multiple toppings for dessert. There was a choice of blueberry, raspberry, strawberry and cherry.  The first one to go was the raspberry. Everybody loved it. It is rich and dark and syrupy and tart. Love, love, love it! It is above on the left.

Cut 1/4th off a 2nd block of cream cheese for your cheesecake..

The other thing I like about a store bought graham cracker crust is the built in lid that you flip over and it makes a great pie taker. So your cheesecake doesn't get smashed up in the car ride. Yeah! How easy is that? Easy peasy!
1 1/4 blocks of cream cheese in this cheesecake recipe...super easy and quick! 

Heavy Whipping cream, some vanilla and some lemon juice....

A little powdered sugar and mix it up! So quick and yummy too! 
Here is my finished cheesecake all set up and ready to take to the family party! 

Raspberry topping...or cherry or blueberry,  and a dollop of whip cream....yummy~!

Grandpa made this cranberry relish with nuts...I was thinking of trying it out on the cheesecake too...Doesn't THAT sound delicious?  
When you serve it, top each piece with 2 spoonfuls of a good, canned, cherry, blueberry or raspberry pie filling, or fresh strawberries and a dollop of Cool Whip.  Easiest and yummiest cheesecake pie you will ever make.  It isn't as "cheesy and hard" as some kinds of cheesecake. It is more light and creamy and lemony.  And every crumb will be licked off of the plates, I promise!
