This is the easiest no bake cheesecake recipe you’ll ever find, and it always sets up quickly. A plain vanilla cheesecake made with cream cheese, sour cream and a touch of gelatin, it’s quite simply perfect. You know those days when you just can’t bother turning on the oven…
How easy is it really?
This recipe is so dead simple that I almost could have made the how-to video above in real-time. I’ve thought that before, like with my flourless peanut butter cookies. I even tried it at first. But you’d be surprised how unbelievably boring it is to watch someone mix something for even, like, 10 whole seconds. ⏲
But I did time myself while making this no bake cheesecake recipe, exactly as written. It clocks in at 10 minutes flat. And that’s only if you factor in crushing the cookie crumbs for the crust in a mini food processor.
It doesn’t include cleaning the dishes, though. You’ll have to do that on your own time! But this recipe is easy enough that I bet your kids could make it for you while you leaf through a magazine or something.
What makes a no bake cheesecake recipe different?
Normally, you expect a cheesecake to be a bit yellow in color, on account of the eggs that are baked right in. But a no bake cheesecake has no eggs—or you wouldn’t be able to no-bake it. The eggs are what make a traditional cheesecake into a cake you can slice.
The eggs are what make a traditional cheesecake into a cake you can slice. So a no bake cheesecake needs to turn to something else, like gelatin. We only use a touch of powdered gelatin, and it does the trick.
All you do is “bloom” the gelatin in some lukewarm water by mixing them together and waiting for the gelatin to swell. Then, melt the mixture in the microwave or over a double boiler.
The mixture of cream cheese and sour cream in this recipe makes for a silky smooth cheesecake with a slight tang. There’s only 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar in the whole recipe, so it’s never too sweet.
What’s on top there?
This is definitely a plain cheesecake, and the real pleasure is in the silky texture. If you have a fresh vanilla bean, though, try adding some real vanilla seeds for a touch more flavor.
I love fruit with cheesecake, and since I make a ton of smoothies, I always have lots of frozen berries. I made a super easy strawberry syrup for this simple cheesecake just by cooking down some frozen strawberries on the stovetop and adding a bit of honey for some added sweetness. Then, either pass the syrup through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds, or blend the mixture until smooth.
Have some leftover strawberry syrup? Add some fruit juice and some gelatin to it, and make some homemade JELLO-style gelatin. No bake all day long!
Drop an egg into a skillet with butter and you get, well, a fried egg. But slip that same egg into a buttered ramekin and let it cook gently in the oven, and you get something entirely different: a soft, spoonable custard that’s so much fun to eat.
Add some ham, a spoonful of tomatoes, and a side of toast, and this makes a perfect breakfast!
Some things are just better when they’re fluffy: pillows, clouds… and pancakes. Definitely pancakes. There’s nothing better than diving into a light, fluffy stack of pancakes. And the key to making pancakes lighter than air is easier than you think. Just don’t make the most common pancake mistake — over-mixing your pancake batter! Perfectly fluffy pancakes […]

The first time I ever ate raw fish was when I was about ten or eleven years old. I was at a Japanese buffet, and my mother told me to eat only the expensive foods so we would get our money’s worth, which meant seafood and sashimi. Of course, I didn’t particularly enjoy raw fish, but being the dutiful daughter, I heeded her advice.
It wasn’t until I started eating poke bowls a few years ago that I warmed up to the idea of dishes with raw fish!
If ever there was a time for strawberry shortcake – easy strawberry shortcake – it’s now. Night comes slowly these days, reluctant to push the sun out of the sky.

9 recipes for homemade ice cream made quickly and easily without an ice cream maker.
What’s your page-turner for an ice cream recipe? For me, if I spy “churn according to manufacturer directions,” I’m out. And I have an ice cream maker!
An ice cream machine isn’t the most expensive one-trick pony kitchen appliance. I still consider it a major pain and a deal breaker.
Here’s why I hate ice cream machine recipes:
- The bowl has to be kept frozen all the time. It’s easy enough to keep it stored in your freezer if you’re lucky enough to have a large enough freezer. But once you use it, you can’t use it again until you freeze it again. Which brings me to …
- It never ever makes enough ice cream for my efforts. Seriously.
- The bits right next to the walls of the machine never come off without my scratching up the container. So it makes even less than it makes. See #2 above.
No churn is the answer
Well then. It goes without saying that I have a particular fondness for no-churn homemade ice cream recipes. Way back in 2013, I created my first no churn ice cream recipe—no churn 3-ingredient vanilla ice cream (see the photo and link just below). That was before every company that makes
That was before every company that makes sweetened condensed milk had essentially the same recipe on its website. I’m not exactly claiming credit since everyone knows that there are no entirely new recipes under the sun.☀️ Except the timing is pretty suspicious.
To make no churn ice cream, there are a few essential elements:
- Low moisture. Water freezes solid, which makes for an icy texture. No bueno for ice cream;
- Plenty of ingredients that don’t freeze solid, like fat and sugar;
- Added ingredients that prevent water from freezing solid, like gelatin (or perhaps agar agar—still experimenting with that one); and/or
- Air incorporated into the mixture, from whipping. That sometimes is in the form of whipped heavy cream, sometimes in the form of marshmallow fluff.
Since the warm weather is coming for most of us, it’s time to start talking ice cream. I have a whole ice cream category of recipes here on the blog, but here are the 9 no churn recipes that I turn to again and again (and again).
You are 3 common pantry-style ingredients away from the richest and creamiest vanilla ice cream of your life. Of course, you don’t need an ice cream machine to make it, and it never gets icy. This is the recipe that started it all.
No churn ice cream recipe made with a simple homemade marshmallow base—and no sweetened condensed milk. Creamy, dreamy and so delicious, you won’t believe how easy it really is. And hello! It tastes like marshmallows.
Smooth and creamy dairy free ice cream made from coconut milk, sugar, and just a touch of powdered gelatin. That’s the secret ingredient that makes it perfect—even though it’s no churn.
Sure, the basic ice cream flavors are gluten free. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry. *yawn* But heaven help you if you’d like something more exciting. Like perhaps… cookie dough ice cream.
The recipe makes just enough cookie dough for the ice cream. If I were you, though, I’d double that part of the recipe and save some for warm-weather snacking.
This rich and creamy no churn dairy free ice cream is made with whipped chocolate coconut cream and marshmallow fluff. The marshmallow base means that you’re halfway to rocky road ice cream right at the start!
Smooth and creamy strawberry homemade ice cream, and not icy at all like we’ve come to expect from ice cream blended with fruit. The secret’s in roasting the strawberries until even their juice is a natural strawberry syrup, and then blending it all right in.
This is a recipe for vanilla semifreddo. It has a custard base, and doesn’t freeze completely solid (semi-freddo – get it?) so it makes a lovely ice cream cake that slices beautifully and is smooth and creamy. And because of the egg yolks in the custard base, it doesn’t need as much sugar to stay smooth. Bonus!
No churn chocolate ice cream with bits of edible brownie dough mixed in. What more is there to say?
Now for a twist on the general ice cream theme. Make no churn frozen yogurt at home without an ice cream machine—and with just a few basic ingredients like Greek yogurt, sugar and water. Freeze it longer for a scoopable treat, less for soft serve consistency. Pinkberry-style froyo at home.
The next time you see “churn according to manufacturer directions” in a recipe, laugh your evil laugh and turn the page … to one of these no churn homemade ice cream recipes.
