Gluten Free No=Bake Cheesecake

Yield: 8 servings

Looking for gluten free cheesecake? This no-bake recipe is super easy to make, and you can customize the crust and/or topping.


  • Gluten Free (I use Mi-Del, see notes)
  • 12 oz (1.5 {8 oz} packages) full fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1 cup Cool Whip
  • 1 cup pie filling (I used strawberry for the one pictured)
  • Fresh fruit and/or chocolate for garnish (optional)


  1. Whip cream cheese with a mixer for 2 minutes (I used a KitchenAid with the whisk attachment). Scrape sides with spatula.
  2. Add sugar and whip another 2 minutes. Scrape bowl with spatula.
  3. Add lemon juice, vanilla, and sour cream. Beat about a minute until smooth and thoroughly mixed, scraping bowl with spatula if needed.
  4. Gently fold in cool whip with spatula.
  5. Spoon mixture into pie crust and smooth.
  6. Spread pie filling over the top, leaving about 1" around the edges for the cheesecake layer to show.
  7. Refrigerate overnight, garnish with toppings if you want, slice, and serve!


This recipe is easy to customize using different flavor crust/pie filling. Here are a few ideas:

  • Black Forest: use a chocolate graham crust + cherry pie filling
  • Lemon Gingersnap: gingersnap crust + lemon curd or pie filling
  • Strawberries and Cream: regular graham crust + strawberry pie filling and extra whipped cream

I always use Mi-Del prepared gluten free pie crusts because they have an authentic taste and texture. You can purchase these in many stores, on Amazon, and on Thrive Market (it's least expensive in-store or via Thrive Market)

Feel free to make your own graham crust if you want. Here are a few recipes I recommend:

Where did you find that crust? That sounds so good!

There's a link in the ingredients section to Amazon. Some grocery stores/health food stores sell them also but I've found it's hit and miss. They have several flavors though and they're delicious!
