No Bake Peach Cheesecake
No Bake Peach Cheesecake is an incredibly rich and delicious dessert that you can never go wrong with. It is one of my favorite cake variants particularly because it hits right the balance between sweet and creamy.
I can never emphasize how ecstatic I am to be sharing this recipe with you. Most people find the no-bake method very intimidating which is what I can truly disprove by giving out this recipe.
It is quite obvious that peaches have become a staple in my dessert recipes. This one, in particular, makes for great use in parties, small gatherings, and even on a chill lazy afternoon.
No-bake recipes are extremely underrated. I usually use it to encourage kids and adults to venture into baking and surely, they always love the hassle-free process.
Is baked cheesecake better than no baked peach cheesecake?
I always believe that taste always comes down to preference. With these two, the major difference is in the texture.
I cannot attest which one is ultimately better, but if you prefer a lighter and airy dessert, then the no-bake one is the best option. On the other hand, if you want something dense, then you should go for the baked option.
How do you make No Bake Peach Cheesecake?
- Making the crust. Mix the graham, sugar, and butter until solid. Place the mixture all along the bottom and sides of the pan
- Prep the gelatin. Get a cup of cold water and sprinkle the gelatin packaging. After 2 minutes, whisk and microwave for 30 seconds. Continue whisking until the gel mixture is formed. Set aside
- Prep the peaches. Smoothen the fruit by using a food processor. Set aside.
- Make the filling. Mix the cheese and sugar well. On another bowl, add the remaining ingredients and whip them until stiff peaks form. Mix all three mixtures together.
- Let it chill. Place the mixture evenly onto the pan with graham crumbs. Refrigerate it for 5 to 6 hours.
- Serve. Add whipping cream or fruit chunks on top as desired. Make sure that it is chilled, then serve.
How to Store:
Keeping this recipe fresh is pretty easy. If you plan to consume it within the week, you can cover the top of the pan with a plastic wrap and refrigerate.
On the other hand, you can let it last for two weeks or so by placing it in the freezer. You can just thaw it afterward when ready to eat.

In addition, if want to see how to have other uses for peaches, here are my suggested recipes:
- To make sure that the batter thickens, my little trick is to fold the whipped cream into the batter slowly. These lessen the deflation of the air keeping the thickness consistent.
- While letting the dessert sit for five to six hours is enough, I still recommend leaving it overnight to achieve the perfect texture.
- Always check whether your crust is cracking. It holds the entire mixture so try to keep a keen eye that it remains solidified.
- While granulated sugar is a basic ingredient in making this dessert, you can also use confectioner’s sugar if you want a lighter taste.

Stop once to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Do not mix on high speed or overmix, as the mascarpone cheese can begin to separate.
