No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

If you love no bake cheesecake, you’ve got to try this No Bake Lemon Cheesecake!

It’s a power punch of tasty lemon mixed with the creaminess of cheesecake!

Years ago, my husband and I were talking about no bake cheesecake. 

We are huge fans. 

My husband challenged me to find a really good no bake cheesecake recipe. 

I tried a few and settled on a simple no bake cheesecake that had a hint of lemon in it. 

We really enjoyed the flavor and the mild lemon went amazingly well with the various fruits we’d top our cheesecake with. 

This recipe suddenly became our go to recipe. 

A few of my fellow foodie friends and I decided to work together on a lemon round up. 

We would all create a recipe with lemon in it that wasn’t already on our sites and link to each others recipe {See bottom of recipe}. 

I knew right then that I wanted to make my no bake cheesecake but wanted a more powerful lemon flavor. 

So today I bring you this No Bake Lemon Cheesecake. 

It’s my favorite no bake cheesecake topped with my favorite lemon curd. 

This is a lemon lovers dream come true. 

The lemon flavor is NOT subtle. 

It’s incredible. 

The creamy cheesecake, topped with lemon curd and a scoop of homemade whipped cream is literally to die for.

If you love anything lemon flavored, then you’ll flip for this easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes

Yield: 10 Slices


  • 2 (8 ounce) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed tastes best, but you can use store bought)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Graham Cracker Crust (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 batch of cooled Lemon Curd
  • Homemade Whipped Cream {or cool whip}


  1. In a bowl blend cream cheese & sweetened condensed milk until creamy and smooth.
  2. Add lemon juice and vanilla and blend well. Mixture should thicken.
  3. Pour mixture into a prepared graham cracker crust.
  4. Top with 1/2 - 3/4 of lemon curd mixture
  5. Chill for 2 hours or overnight. Personally we found it slices best if frozen for 2 hours - overnight. Refrigerated pie is soft, pie from freezer slices perfectly as shown in photo. Pie doesn't actually freeze or need to be thawed.
  6. Slice and enjoy with a scoop of homemade whipped cream.

    • Hi Jess! I’ve never frozen it for 24 hour so I’m not sure. However if you do freeze it, let is stand at room temperature for 30 minutes – 1 hour before serving. It should slice fine.
