I’ve been a little obsessed with the no bake desserts lately, but they are so easy and perfect for summer.
Recently, I made this no bake Oreo cheesecake. It’s creamy and cold. Perfect for the warm weather we’ve been experiencing.
Since it was just for Mr. K and myself, I didn’t decorate it, though now looking at the photos, I wish I had decorated the top. The cake takes about 20 minutes to put together and then it goes in the fridge to set. To make things a little lighter, I added some Greek yogurt to the cheesecake mixture.
If you want something stiffer, you can beat in heavy cream instead of Greek yogurt. The cake still stands up with the Greek yogurt, but it’s not as solid as the heavy cream version I made before, but it’s a lot healthier.
No Bake Oreo Cheesecake
For the Crust
- 13 oreos
- 4 tbsp melted butter
For the Cheesecake
- 6 Oreos
- 2 (8-oz) boxes cream cheese
- 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups lowfat plain Greek yogurt (see note)
- Line the bottom of a 6 inch springform pan with parchment paper. This will make it easier to remove the cheesecake after it is done. Crush the 13 Oreos in a food processor until fine crumbs. Add in melted butter and mix again through food processor. Pour into cake pan and press down firmly so that the crust evenly lines the bottom of the cake pan.
- Mix cream cheese, yogurt, and sugar in stand mixer on high speed until smooth and fluffy. Add in Oreos and mix in at low speed until Oreos are crushed and evenly mixed in batter. Pour batter into cake pan on top of crust. Rap bottom of the cake pan on hard surface a few times until cheesecake mixture settles and top is smooth. Refrigerate overnight.
- If you want a very solid cheesecake, use heavy cream instead of low-fat yogurt and beat heavy cream separately first until stiff peaks form and then beat with sugar and cream cheese.
