No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

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

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
 This non bake Oreo cheesecake is creamy, cold and a perfect dessert for warm weather.

Ingredients

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)

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • 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.

  1. I’ll have to try this with some of the flavored Oreos or even Nutter Butters. I certainly don’t like using the oven when the temperature is up. πŸ˜‰

  2. Oh this looks amazing! Even without any decorations it’s gorgeous πŸ™‚ I’ll have to make this; S would love it – he’s a huge cookies & cream fan.

  3. I like how it looks without decoration – somehow looks like a winterwonderland πŸ™‚ Found your blog through buzzfeed yesterday…and am loving it, so just wanted to say hi πŸ™‚

  4. I think I just found the dessert to make for my g/f’s 50th birthday in a couple of weeks!
    πŸ™‚

  5. I like how this looks without the extra decoration on top! It’s simple and lovely. No bake is really the way to go for the summer. Though it’s strangely cold this morning. Huh.

    • Yeah this July weather is bizarre. The raindrops are really throwing me off. I don’t remember the last time it rained in the summer.

  6. Hi there,
    I would love to try this! πŸ™‚

    However, this would be my first attempt making a cheesecake, how should I adjust the recipe if I have a 10 inch springfoam pan? Thank you!

  7. What if you don’t own a spring form pan??

  8. Hello! =)
    I don’t have have a stand mixer so I was wondering if I could mix the mixture manually using a spatula? And how fluffy must the mixture be?
    Thank you for your recipe and I would appreciate your advice πŸ™‚

  9. To bonnie. I would think doubling the recipe and putting it into a 9×13 pan. I think we all have those.
    πŸ™‚

    • the only problem with a square or rectangle pan is that it will be hard to remove the cake out of the pan to slice up. I guess you can try lining extra parchment paper so that you can lift it up later to remove.

  10. How much would this recipe yield?

  11. I made according to this and the result was wonderful it was my first try but family members and friends gave me a thumbs up x

  12. I tried the recipe n followed every step as you have said on your blog but my cheesecake is not setting even after refrigerating for 5 hours. What should I do?

    • If it isn’t setting, I’m not sure what you can do at this point to save it. Are you sure you used regular cream cheese and greek yogurt (as opposed to regular yogurt)? I didn’t have any issues with mine setting.

  13. How long can the cheesecake keep for?

  14. Hi, I was just wondering if could I just use a blender at home since I don’t have a stand mixer? Also what do you mean by “Rap bottom of the cake pan on hard surface a few times until cheesecake mixture settles and top is smooth?” For the oreo’s in the cheesecake, does it matter if I still have the filling in the oreo since its going to get crushed anyways? Lastly by leaving it overnight, how would I know if its settled? Sorry for asking so much. I hope to hear from you soon and thank you for the lovely recipe.

    • I’ve never tried it in a blender so I dont know how it would turn out. Rap the bottom of the cake pan- After you pour the liquid in, to let it settle and become smooth, if you bang the bottom of the pan against a hard surface (but not too hard because you don’t want it spilling out) it should even and settle so you have a smooth surface. The oreos, you do not need to remove the filling. you use the entire oreos. you should be able to tell if the cake is settled by seeing how much it moves/jiggles. If it’s too liquidy it will move around a lot. Once it’s settled, it shouldnt move as much, indicating that it can be sliced without it falling apart

  15. if i replace greek yogurt with chilled whipping cream, is it 1 1/2 cups as well?

  16. Hi! Can I substitute the greek yogurt with sour cream?
