No Bake Pistachio Cheesecake

This recipe for No Bake Pistachio Cheesecake is simple and easy to prepare! This dessert is creamy, light and the most perfect cheesecake ever.       

Okay, there’s nothing better than a rich, creamy New York style cheesecake – this is common knowledge. But, every now and then a woman gets a hankering for cheesecake and needs a quick fix. This pistachio cheesecake is a unique twist on a simple no bake version that is sure to satisfy.

My No Bake Pistachio Cheesecake has a buttery graham cracker crust and a smooth, silky cream cheese filling. Each spoonful is like biting into a rich, creamy cloud. No lie, everyone who has tried it absolutely loves it. The best part is that it’s so easy to prepare and doesn’t even require you to turn on the oven.

Austin goes through phases where he fixates on this dessert so I decided to whip up one for him as an early Valentine’s Day treat. To this day, I still get so excited when he loves a new recipe.

As you can probably tell by the photos of this sweet little cheesecake is that cake decorating is one of my many shortcomings. But the upside to that is you’re probably better at it than me! Some other toppings you can use are berries, crushed pistachios and chocolate ganache… now that I sit down to write this post I wish I would have doused this bad boy in chocolate. *sigh*

Valentine’s Day is coming up and St. Patrick’s is right around the corner. Why not give this No Bake Pistachio Cheesecake a try? Share a picture on instagram and tag me @bluecheesebungalow. Let me know what you think in the comments section below!
