Summers belong to the easy, classic no-bake cheesecake! Or at least around here, they do. They are so simple, easy, and the fact that no oven is required makes it the perfect hot-weather dessert.
I threw together this no-bake cake batter cheesecake last year using golden Oreos and almost forgot how divine it was. This demanded that I post a no-bake oreo cheesecake to add to the club. I mean, it’s only fair, right?
Out of all the no-bake cheesecakes I’ve made, I’m gonna have to say Oreo is my fav!!! You just can’t beat this combination of cookies and cream baby! And it’s always a crowd-pleaser.
I got this recipe off the back of a box of crushed Oreos (do they still sell those?) and it’s a keeper for sure! No tweaks and twerks needed.
It’s creamy, fluffy, sweet, and full of that true cookie and cream flavor. If you ever get stumped on what kind of dessert to make for a cookout, this is it! I can pretty much count on not having leftovers which is a good thing because I’d eat this whole cheesecake if I’m left alone with it long enough (and I don’t need long).
Now if you’re not a fan of the ingredients in Oreo cookies then you can always opt for another brand of chocolate sandwich cookies like Newman O’s or Back to Nature. The cool whip can be replaced with homemade whipping cream or TruWhip.
There are also organic brands of cream cheese and even a really great non-dairy cream cheese called “Better Than Cream Cheese” which is amazing! So there, now you have no reason not to make this sinfully delicious no-bake Oreo cheesecake!! Yayy we can both have matching muffin tops by the end of summer! Aren’t I a good foodie friend? You’re welcome. Love you.
