How to make homemade No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake made with jello, sweetened condensed milk, and a few other ingredients!
A Simple No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Recipe!
Hey folks! I don’t know what it is about the summer, but I’m always craving lemon desserts. One of my favorite lemon desserts would have to be a no-bake lemon cheesecake.
Whenever I make my semi homemade no-bake lemon cheesecake, I keep it simple. I use a few simple ingredients, and I cheat by using a store bought graham cracker crust.
My no-bake lemon cheesecake recipe consists of lemon Jello( plus hot water), sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, a dash of vanilla, and cream cheese. I simply mix everything until it’s nice and creamy, then pour the no-bake lemon cheesecake filling into the graham cracker crust.
While you’re here, check out some of my other no-bake recipes!
Once the filling is in the crust, I smooth everything out, then I cover the cheesecake. My next step is to refrigerate it, for a minimum of 4 hours. Once done, I simply serve & enjoy!
Again, this cheesecake is super easy to whip up. Be sure to check out my video tutorial below for a demonstration! Print the recipe and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube for more recipes!

Hi Rosie. I’m going to try this recipe. Do you think it will be ok to use sugar Jello? Thanks for sharing all your delicious recipes. I’ve tried a lot of them but haven’t regularly taken time to comment.
Hi Rosie. Do you think using sugar free jello would work?
Yes indeed! XOXO
I’m going to try this tomorrow…Can’t wait

Debra Martin says
Sounds so easy and delicious. What if I wanted to bake? is there much change in the recipe?
Yes, that would be a different recipe. This recipe should not be baked.
Kendra May says
Damn the comment above is dumb as hell. Why would you bake something that clearly says NO BAKE. You have a lot of patience Rosie. The recipe was delicious.

Hi Alyce! So glad that you liked the recipe! XOXO
6 oz. of SCMilk? so not a full can?. How do you measure that out? Like 2/3 of a cup?
You need to measure it with a liquid measuring cup.
If I froze this cheesecake, would it be solid enough to withstand in the middle of two cake layers?
I’ve never tried that. I’d hate to give you the wrong answer.
You make baking seem so easy. I have to try this out. Thanks
Let me know how it comes out for you Nichole. 😉
I made it yesterday followed recipe to the T and it didn’t set up what could I have done wrong ?
Really not sure if you followed all the steps hun.
Asking this for tonite just went into the fridge cant wait
Thank so much Rosie
