Easy no bake cheesecake key ingredients

  • Vanilla wafers- Crushed vanilla wafers make the crust for the no bake cheesecake, and they go perfectly with the piña colada flavor. The crust is made quickly in a blender, then pressed into the pan and sets in the fridge while up whip up the filling- so easy!
  • Cream cheese- Since cream cheese is the main ingredients of these easy no bake cheesecake bars, opt for a good quality brand. Make sure you are using room temperature cream cheese for this recipe so the filling is nice and smooth. Cold cream cheese tends to create a lumpy batter.
  • Banana pudding- Piña coladas main flavors are pineapple and coconut, but the addition of banana really sends this recipe right over the edge. Banana cream pie pudding is added to thicken the batter and add loads of tropical flavor. If you cannot find banana pudding, you can opt for vanilla instead.
  • Crushed pineapple- Whenever someone tries these no bake cheesecake bars for the first time, they ask “is there pineapple in this?!” with pure delight! The pineapple adds so much flavor and really brings the piña colada taste to this summer dessert.
  • Whipped topping- The whipped topping is folded into the filling mixture in the last step to make these cheesecake bars fluffy, light, and smooth.
