5-Ingredient No-Bake Cheesecake


Easy 5-ingredient no-bake cheesecake. It's all about chemistry. The most important part of this recipe is to leave the cream cheese out for a couple of hours at room temperature before mixing. Not doing so, will create lumps of cream cheese that will affect the flavor of this pie.

1 9-inch cheesecake


  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®), thawed

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened to room temperature

  • cup lemon juice

  • 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust


  1. Combine condensed milk, whipped topping, and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Add lemon juice and blend on low speed until all ingredients are incorporated and mixture is creamy, about 2 minutes. Pour into graham cracker crust and refrigerate until firm, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Lime juice can be used in place of lemon juice, if preferred.

You can substitute mini graham cracker crusts instead of a 9-inch crust.
