No-Bake Whipped Cream Cheesecake

I met a lovely new friend at one of my Pampered Chef get-togethers who shared this amazing cheesecake recipe with me.  It's light but very rich...whipped cream heaven!

Crust:  1-1/4 graham cracker crumbs
           4 Tbsp. melted butter
           3 Tbsp. sugar

Combine all ingredients and press into springform pan or 10" tube pan.  Refrigerate while you make the cream cheese filling.  Set aside 2 Tbsp. for garnish.

  • 1 pkg. Lemon Jello (small box)
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 2 - 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Dissolve Jello in 1/2 cup boiling water.  Set aside to cool.  Whip 3 cups heavy cream until stiff.  In a clean bowl whip cream cheese until fluffy.  Add sugar, Jello and vanilla and mix well.  Fold in whipped cream.  Refrigerate overnight or until set.

  1. I really have to go off my diet, since every time I come here I gain more weight having to eat all these wonderful treats! No bake is perfect here in Florida, its cooler in the kitchen! lovely desserts thank you will be making this during the summer!

  2. This sounds SO good Patti. Glad she shared it with you. I love these no-bake desserts. Especially when the heat and humidity becomes unbearable and I don't want anything to do with my oven!

  3. this looks AMAZING! I could do some real damage with it in my house! lol

  4. That looks exquisite. Make sure you enjoy every incredible bite of it.

  5. Mmm, the cake looks delicious :)

  6. Thank looks fantastic~I was intrigued by the title of this dessert so I had to check it out. I would make this right now, but I whipped up a baked lemon cheesecake last night so I will have to wait until that one is gone. Thanks for sharing!

  7. This is an awesome Cheesecake. We will be having this very soon, it looks delicious. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week!

  12. Gorgeous photo! Pinning for sure...I'm wild about cheesecake...and simple recipes too. Thanks for sharing at Weekend Potluck.

  13. I really want to make this! Question: does it taste like lemon? Or just plain cheesecake?

    1. There is not a pronounced lemon flavor - just plain cheesecake goodness!

    2. I was wondering the same thing, will reducing the amount of jello mess up the texture?

    3. The Jell-O is simple to set the cheesecake.

    4. I substituted lemon extract for the vanilla in the filling if you are looking for more lemon flavor.

  14. Looks easy and delicious but, I am wondering if another flavor of jello would be ok?


Thank you for visiting!
