No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecakes

NO BAKE PINEAPPLE CHEESECAKES

No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecakes are fun to make and are a refreshing twist on the traditional Pineapple Upside Down Cake, merging two favourites in one delicious dessert!

This is one of those recipes you can have in 30 minutes — including chill time — from start to finish.

Everything you love about cheesecake in an individual serving glass, with each spoonful delivering a buttery graham cracker base, a creamy ‘cheesecake’ centre filled with juicy pineapple pieces, and a pineapple ring with a maraschino cherry to complete the Upside Down Pineapple craving.

 

Ingredients

FOR THE BASE:

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 1 8-ounce block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces canned pineapple, crushed or finely diced and drained
  • extra pineapple slices, to garnish
  • Maraschino Cherries, to garnish

Preparation

  1. Combine together the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a larger bowl, beat the cream cheese, cream and sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed setting until smooth and creamy. Fold in the yogurt, pineapple, and vanilla and mix well to combine.
  3. Divide the crust mixture among 4 individual serving glasses and press into the base of each glass.
  4. Repeat with the cream cheese mixture; cover and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes to chill.
  5. To serve, garnish with the additional pineapple and a maraschino cherry in the centre of the pineapple ring.

This cake looks beautiful, I would love a piece right now. I’m definitely going to give this ago as I love the flavor combination.

I think these no bake cheesecakes are, dare I say, even better than the actual cake! Don’t shoot me.

If you’re on the hunt for a quick dessert and can’t for the life of you figure out what you want, (or need. Either one, really), then this is a dream come true. If you like pineapple. And cheesecake.
