No-Bake Dreamsicle Cheesecake Recipe

I made these the other day for Ben & I. They were so good that they disappeared before I got a picture. I got the recipe from Craftaholics Anonymous, love this site.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2-3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons orange zest (zest of 1 large orange)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • whipped cream
  • 4 orange sugar candies
Beat the cream cheese in a stand mixer, on medium, or food processor until smooth. Add the orange juice, orange zest and vanilla extract. Pulse/mix until everything is well-combined. Then slowly add the powdered sugar. When everything is well combined, turn off your machine.
In the bottom of each glass, evenly place 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs. Distribute the cheesecake mixture into the glasses so that it is evenly distributed amongst your glasses. Put the glasses in the refrigerator to chill and set for 2-3 hours.
After the cheesecakes set, top the cream cheese mixture with whipped cream. Garnish with an orange candy.
Note: Taste the cream cheese mixture before assembling to see if you want to add an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract.
