3 No-Bake Cheesecake in a Jar Recipes + Free Printables


I’m going over to my mom’s house this weekend and a lot of family will be over there. I thought I’d make a special dessert for everyone — no-bake cheesecake in a jar. Because everyone has different tastes, I wanted to make a variety of options so people can take their pick.

I love this no-bake recipe. It’s summer and so extremely hot outside. I don’t want to turn on my oven if I don’t have to.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Trust me, it’s yummy! Enjoy!

Flavors:

  • Key Lime
  • Blueberry
  • Strawberry

You can make one or make all. It’s up to you, of course.

What’s great about these flavored cheesecakes is that they all use the same cream cheese/yogurt base and graham cracker crust.

This recipe makes 5 single servings.

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 package of graham crackers
  • 2 Tbsp of melted butter

Instructions:

Step 1: Crush your graham crackers using a food processor or by placing it in a zip lock back and crushing them with a hammer or your hands.

Step 2: Stir the melted butter into the crushed graham crackers. (Note: You can put more butter in if you like. I personally try to minimize as much sugar/fat as possible. I just put enough butter in to make the crust a little more packable.)

Step 3: Set aside.

Cream Cheese Base Ingredients:

  • 1 (8oz) package of softened cream cheese
  • ½ (7oz) can of condensed milk
  • ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt
