No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake – Only 6 Ingredients
Oh how I love cheesecake. But I rarely eat it and almost never make it. Why? Because of the insane calorie-count and the extreme amount of effort to make it at home. So, I set out to figure out how to make a delicious cheesecake at home that isn’t loaded with calories. And since it’s the season of all-things-pumpkin I figured a Pumpkin Cheesecake would be perfect. Oh…and it is 🙂
Not only does my Pumpkin Cheesecake require no baking and just 6 ingredients (7 if you count the store bought crust), but you won’t feel guilty for having more than one bite! And as added bonus, you will have this No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake prepped in under 30 minutes, in fact, you can probably have it prepped it about 15 minutes!
So, are you ready to get cooking? Well, actually there is “cooking” but you don’t have to tell your guests that you didn’t slave over it for hours 😉
