No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

If you didn’t read my post yesterday, I’m in full on hibernation, neverleavethehouse, hidingfromsociety mode. I had a face treatment called profractional done on Tuesday and I am straight up horrifying. The first day your face is bloody, then next day your face is swollen, and now I’m just oddly scabbed, red and puffy. It’s hard not to regret a treatment like this while you’re healing but I’m trying to remember that it’s so damn worth it longterm. Acne was a part of my life for years, but I don’t want the acne scars to define me and this treatment works deeper on those scars than anything else. PLUS it helps with wrinkles. And who doesn’t like to slow down the wrinkles?! I wish I could stay hiding out today but I have to grocery shop and get some new recipes done for you guys, so I’m venturing out. Too bad people aren’t too keen on face masks in stores. Because I could really rock that look right now.

Are you guys obsessed with Stranger Things right now?! I’m not sure how I feel about it. It kind of makes me sick to my stomach sometimes. Why does everything have to be so gooey and slimy and sloppy? I keep watching because Netflix just makes the decision for me before I can even grab the remote, but I still feel kind of grossed out the whole time. All the characters and 80’s feel is THE BEST, but the goo is just too much. Anybody with me?

Have you started planning for Thanksgiving yet?! We were planning to have people over but now I think we are going to take food to our friends house instead since they have a million babies and no energy to actually cook for themselves. So I need to start planning what I’m going to whip up for them. I miss the days when I didn’t eat Thanksgiving food until the day of, but now I make everything ahead of time for you guys so I’m pretty much over the comfort food by the time that Thursday comes around. Instead I just want to eat Puerto Rican food at a little hole in the wall down the street from us. Maybe they’ll be open on Thanksgiving. A plantain, rice and pork Thanksgiving sounds much appealing than dry turkey right now.

And just FYI with these little cheesecakes – there’s no need for you to make the little cookie cups if you don’t feel like baking. This pumpkin cheesecake can be eaten on it’s own in a jar and that way it’s FULLY no bake. Just giving you two options to serve this pumpkin cheesecake on Thanksgiving day!

No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

  • Author: juli
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes



For the no bake cheesecake:

  • 8 ounces almond milk cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup maple sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 14 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

For the cookie crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 batch coconut milk whipped cream


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Whip almond milk cream cheese in a stand mixer for 5 minutes. Then add the rest of the ingredients to the stand mixer and whip for another 5 minutes until completely combine. Once completely combine, put in a closed container into the fridge to set. 
  3. While the cheesecake whips, add all ingredients for the crust into a food processor and pulse until completely combine. The dough should combine into a slight ball once combine. Spray a mini muffin tin with coconut oil spray, then use a cookie scoop to scoop 2 tablespoons of the dough into 14-15 muffin wells. Use a spoon (or I used a wooden muddler) to press the middle of the dough in to create a well for the pumpkin cheesecake to go in. Use a fork to poke holes in the bottom of the well to keep the cookie form puffing up while baking. Place in the oven for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool completely.
  4. Make coconut whipped cream.
  5. Use a spoon to scoop the no bake pumpkin cheesecake into each cookie cup then top with coconut whipped cream. You will have remaining no bake pumpkin cheesecake so put the rest in jars and top with coconut whipped cream.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hi Juli – this looks great. How many mini crusts does this recipe make? We have a big family so I always need to plot out how many of each recipe I need to make!!

    Thank you!

  2. I have the very same feelings about Stranger Things. I just watched season 1 because every is losing their ish over season 2 and now I don’t even want to keep going. Can The Bachelor just come back already so we can get your recaps? (AKA the funniest thing I read all week.)

    1. i’m already almost through season 2 and i still feel leah feeling just weird every time i watch it. people seriously go crazy for it but i just don’t get it! but for reallllll can it be january bachelor season already?!

  3. Oh I am so making these for Thanksgiving this year! I know what you mean about not feeling down with the Feast once the holiday gets here. I plan the menu and cook a $hitload, and then I’m too exhausted and sick of the everything I’ve cooked to actually want to eat it! Lol

    I feel you on the icky goo of Stranger Things, but I love me some Eleven and 80’s vibes, so I’m mostly loving watching it this season (although what was up with episode 7??). That being said, I also love me some pinot noir/Bachelor evenings, so there you have it.

    Anyway, blah blah blah, I can’t wait to try these delectable pumpkin goodies!

  4. Hi Julie, it appears the cream cheese in your recipe is not available and may not be available again. Any suggestions for substitution? Thank you, Kathy

    1. Yes please, I was not able to find it either. Would love to still be able to make this recipe with a substitution.
      Thank you, Mar.

  5. My husband and I watched both seasons of stranger things over one week! I didn’t think I’d like it, but those kids are so dang cute!

    We had a Friendsgiving two years ago and it was really fun.. woulda have been more fun if someone besides me did all the cooking ????

  6. This is my new favorite pumpkin recipe! I’m making a big batch of just the no bake cheesecake and bringing it in to work next week. Love it!

  7. Hi Juli! I am making. These for both family dinners. How far In advance can you make them? Or at least mix the pumpkin? I have two thanksgivings to go to ???? one Wednesday and one Thursday. Thanks!

  8. YUM! I just made the filling and skipped the crust. SO good!! I didn’t have maple sugar, so I used coconut sugar instead and it still came out perfect.

  9. I bought a GF pie crust, baked it, cooled, and scooped the pumpkin filling filling on it. Divine! Thank you so much Julie for ALL your amazing recipes!
