No-Bake Peach Cheesecake Bars Recipe

With the temps reaching into the mid-90s, there’s no way I’m turning on the oven to bake a dessert. I’ve been craving cool and creamy desserts like this one. The filling has a combination of fresh peaches and peach gelatin for plenty of peach flavor.

Ingredients Needed

Only 8 simple ingredients needed!

Graham Cracker Crumbs– you can either buy a box of graham cracker crumbs or process graham crackers in a food processor until finely ground. It also works to place them in a large ziptop bag and crush them with something heavy.

Butter– I use salted.

Sugar– granulated

Neufchatel Cheese– similar to cream cheese but with a lower fat content.

Cream Cheese

Peach-Flavored gelatin– I use Jell-O brand.

Cool Whip

Fresh Peaches– frozen, thawed peaches can be used instead.

Recipe Tip

For the filling I use a mixture of Neufchatel cheese and cream cheese to help cut back on the fat some but still have it be plenty creamy and rich. You could use all one or the other.

Type of Peaches To Use

Fresh, ripe peaches taste best. Use either yellow or white, freestone or clingstone. If you want to make this dessert when peaches aren’t in season, just use frozen or canned peaches and you can enjoy No-Bake Peach Cheesecake Bars all year long!

How To Store

Wrap well with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for 4 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
