These No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Bars have a graham cracker crust, a creamy no bake cheesecake filling and a homemade raspberry layer on top.
Now that we have the details down on how to make a no bake graham cracker crust and how to make a perfect no bake cheesecake, let try some fun flavor combinations. First, this raspberry no bake cheesecake. Get excited for a lemon blueberry no bake cheesecake and a no bake pumpkin cheesecake pie coming soon too!
This recipe makes a 9×13 inch pan of dessert, so it’s perfect for serving a crowd or taking to a potluck. It also makes a great birthday dessert that’s not cake. My family never loved cake and we often had other non-cake birthday desserts and the no bake blueberry cheesecake version is one dessert I remember having. I think it was my mom’s favorite.
How to make easy no bake raspberry cheesecake
First, start by making the graham cracker crust. Check out this post on no bake graham cracker crust for all the details on how to make it perfect. Once you have pressed it into a 9×13 inch pan, chill it in the refrigerator and make the cheesecake filling.
First beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Then gently fold in the Cool Whip or whipped cream. Spread carefully on top of the graham cracker crust. It so easy isn’t it, just five ingredients in the filling. Chill that layer in the refrigerator while you make the raspberry layer.
Whisk together the cornstarch and sugar until smooth. Then add the water, raspberries and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until thickened and clear. The best part about this is you can use fresh or frozen raspberries. I find myself reaching for frozen berries the most as they are more economical and available all year.
Let the raspberry filling cool completely and spread on the cheesecake layer. Chill the whole dessert for 6 hours and then cut and serve.
