The best rich and ultra creamy no-bake cheesecake requiring only 10 minutes of work and less than 10 ingredients



  • 200g Graham Crackers or Wheat Digestives (about 13-14 sheets full sheets of graham crackers)

  • 90g unsalted butter, melted

  • Pinch of salt

Cheesecake filling:

  • 800g cream cheese (28 oz or 3.5 8 oz packs), room temperature

  • 150g granulated sugar (2/3 cup)

  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2-4 tbsp lemon juice, to taste

  • 120g sour cream (1/2 cup)

  • 120g heavy cream (1/2 cup), chilled

Decoration (optional):

  • 120g heavy cream (1/2 cup), chilled and whipped
  • Fresh berries



  • For the crust, grind the graham crackers, then add the melted butter and salt and mix

  • Line a 9” springform pan with parchment paper

  • Place the crust ingredients tightly on the bottom of the lined pan, using the back of a measuring cup to tightly pack them down. Place in the fridge

Cheesecake filling:

  • Use the paddle attachment of a stand mixer to mix the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt until creamy and the sugar is dissolved (~2 minutes)

  • Add in the sour cream and lemon juice, and mix until combined

  • Separately, whisk the heavy cream until it reaches stiff peaks

  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until combined

  • Pour the cheesecake filling into the prepared pan on top of the crust, and press it down with an offset spatula to remove any air bubbles and spread evenly

  • Place the cheesecake in the fridge for 4 hours (or overnight) until fully set


  • Decorate with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, and serve!


  • This cheesecake has a thick crust. If you don't like a thick crust, you can reduce the crust quantity, or push it up the sides of the pan in addition to the bottom
