No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecakes

No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecakes are fun to make and are a refreshing twist on the traditional Pineapple Upside Down Cake, merging two favourites in one delicious dessert!

No Bake Pineapple Cheesecake is a refreshing dessert you'll totally enjoy. Rich, creamy, and delightful!

I’ve done it again. I created a hybrid of two favourites into one. Like that Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Cake and the Carrot Cake Cheesecake, only this one is much more simple and in a glass with zero baking.

It’s no secret how much I love cheesecake. Everything about the flavour of cheesecake completes my soul with every bite. But sometimes, I don’t have the time to be baking and then waiting around all night to HAVE my beloved cheesecake. Which explains all of the No Bake Parfaits I have on this blog.  And also explains why so many people are constantly making them and sharing them with me over on Instagram.

No Bake Pineapple Cheesecake would be a great dessert for a party. Everyone will ask for the recipe!

This is one of those recipes you can have in 30 minutes — including chill time — from start to finish. And perfect for warmer weather and Summery nights!

Everything you love about cheesecake in an individual serving glass, with each spoonful delivering a buttery graham cracker base, a creamy ‘cheesecake’ centre filled with juicy pineapple pieces, and a pineapple ring with a maraschino cherry to complete the Upside Down Pineapple craving.

The first time we tried a Pineapple Upside Down Cake was at an end of year work party, and from there I was hooked. I understood then the popularity of that cake. My husband didn’t get it, which is no surprise since he doesn’t really get any of my food affairs.

BUT! To make that cake into a cheesecake-like dessert? Well, he liked this so much that he ate them all, which meant I had to make them all again for everyone else. Not that we minded.

To be honest, the second time around it landed in a big parfait bowl, which we shared while watching Friends. Don’t judge me.

No Bake Pineapple Cheesecake gives you a sweet taste of pineapple in every bite. So good!

I think these no bake cheesecakes are, dare I say, even better than the actual cake! Don’t shoot me.

If you’re on the hunt for a quick dessert and can’t for the life of you figure out what you want, (or need. Either one, really), then this is a dream come true. If you like pineapple. And cheesecake.

    I don’t like greek yogurt therefor did not care for this recipe..Without the yogurt it would probably be good.

    This recipe looks delicious.What if I don’t add yogurt?


    • Jamie — May 13, 2016 at 12:49 pm

      Hi, Amera! I think the yogurt adds a bit of an acidic taste that makes the cheesecakes taste really good. You might want to try sour cream. I hope this helps!

  4. Shifani — May 11, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Any substitute to be used for Greek yoghurt? Cos v don’t get in da place I reside!


    • Jamie — May 13, 2016 at 12:50 pm

      Hi, Shifani! You could try using sour cream and see if that works. I hope you enjoy it!

    I can’t believe people are saying they don’t like the yoghurt in this! This was absolutely perfect, refreshing, and the taste was sensational. I’m definitely going to make these again over the Summer. Pool side desserts! Thank you Jamie! 


    • Jamie — May 20, 2016 at 10:32 am

    • Jamie — June 2, 2016 at 9:47 am

      Thank you, Thalia! I hope you enjoy them!

  8. Ellen — June 2, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    Will the cheese mixture solidify and hold its shape or it will just remain thick?  Thanks.


    • Jamie — June 3, 2016 at 1:37 pm

      Hi, Ellen! I think it’ll do pretty much a combination of the two! The cheesecake definitely won’t be runny — the texture is pretty marvelous. I hope you like it!

  9. Keimarie Ledesma — July 28, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    Can I substitute the Greek yogurt with sour cream??


    • Jamie — July 29, 2016 at 6:47 am

      Hi, Keimarie! I think you might be able to substitute sour cream for the Greek yogurt. Let me know how you like it!

  10. Brenda — August 18, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    I’m definitely going to try this, a couple of suggestions tho, grill the pineapple & put just a little brown sugar on top of it. I think if I didn’t like greek yogurt because of the tartness I would add a little honey.


    • Jamie — August 20, 2016 at 7:01 am

      Great suggestions, Brenda!

  11. Sha — September 16, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    Try regular vanilla yogurt. It’ll be better mixed with the cream cheese.


    • Jamie — September 17, 2016 at 2:50 pm

      I will have to try that, Sha! Thank you for the suggestion!

  12. Valentina — December 22, 2016 at 9:11 pm

    Just made those. Without the crust and used 2  drops of almond extract instead of vanilla. I’m a  cheese cake lover. But. Wouldn’t try it again . 


    • Jamie — December 25, 2016 at 2:52 pm

      Thanks for giving them a try, Valentina!
