Are you ready for a super easy No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Dessert recipe? This easy to make, Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie is light, pumpkin-y and oh-so-good! It’s a perfect no-bake fall dessert.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dairy MAX. All opinions are 100% mine.
Today’s post is dedicated to my love of all things pumpkin in the fall – but without all the work! (Cuz that’s how I roll, lol.)
I’ve partnered with Dairy MAX to bring you one of my favorite dairy-based Fall Dessert Recipes.
This no-bake pumpkin cheesecake recipe is fluffy, light and oh-so-pumpkiny. It’s the perfect pumpkin recipe to make when you need a Fall dessert, but don’t feel like turning on the oven. (90 degrees today – yes, fall in Texas, I’m talking about you!)
Here’s what you need to know about this No Bake Pumpkin Pie Recipe:
- It tastes so good! Even though this recipe has a block of cream cheese in it, it has the flavor of a real pumpkin pie.
- Use a store bought crust and it’s completely no bake pumpkin pie.
- This no-bake pumpkin pie is super easy to make, but be aware that you need to allow time for the cream cheese to soften and then several hours for the pie to completely set up. (If serving to guests, I recommend putting the pie together the night before as it will be nice and firm and just look prettier. Also, I think the longer it sets up the better it tastes.)
- I consider this dessert recipe to be kinda-healthy! (Or as healthy as any dessert can be.) If you’re doing low carb, you can sub the graham cracker crust for a nut crust or serve it crustless as a mousse and use any cup for cup sugar substitute. It’s made with just a few ingredients: pumpkin puree, cream cheese, real cream, spices and a bit of sugar.
Did you know dairy foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt are full of protein and calcium and are linked to improved bone health, especially in children and adolescents? For adults, milk and dairy-based recipes are the leading food source of calcium, potassium, vitamin D and other important vitamins and minerals.
You know that all saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?
Well, when it comes to kids science has proven that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day and can affect their performance in the classroom. Kids who eat breakfast have a higher intake of calcium, have higher test scores and improved daily attendance. Milk is also full of whey protein which is a high-quality complete protein found naturally in dairy products.
One thing I make sure to do is to ensure that my kids get a balanced breakfast every morning that includes a serving of dairy. Need a few new recipe ideas? You can find tons of dairy-based recipes over at DairyDiscoveryZone.com. (Plus get all the facts on Dairy Myths vs Dairy Truths!)
I use a lot of dairy in the recipes I share. Milk, cream, cheese, yogurt, and yes, even cottage cheese. The creamy, cheesy, protein filled goodness in dairy products just make my recipes that much better! Be sure to visit Dairy MAX to learn more about the benefits of dairy.

Can you see how light and fluffy this pie is? I like that it is not super sweet and that the pumpkin flavor is the main flavor. I almost don’t even taste the cream cheese. I am always suprised how much it tastes like regular pumpkin pie to me. (especially with a huge dollop of vanilla flavored cream on top!
