This EASY No-Bake Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake has a buttery graham cracker crust and layers of no-bake cheesecake and a fresh raspberry purée.


For the Crust:

  • 2 ¼ cups (202g) graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

  • 6 ounces (170g) white chocolate bar, roughly chopped
  • 3 ounces (85g) raspberries, puréed
  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons (281ml) heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1/4 cup (32g) powdered sugar
  • 16 ounces (452) full-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (95g) granulated sugar
  • zest 1 lemon (about 1 tablespoon)

For the Topping:

  • ¾ cup (177ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons (16g) powdered sugar
  • Raspberries for garnish


For the Crust:

  1. Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lightly greasing the edges of the pan with cooking spray, and then wiping gently with a paper towel.
  2. Grind the graham crackers into fine crumbs using a food processor or blender. Pour the melted butter over the graham crackers and stir until the crumbs are well coated.
  3. Pour the crumbs into your springform pan and press firmly into the bottom and up on the sides to create a thick crust. Refrigerate the crust while you are preparing the filling.

For the Filling:

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate together with 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds. Gently stir and return the microwave for another 30 seconds (50% power). At this point, the chocolate should be melted. Stir until it’s completely smooth. Set aside to cool.
  2. Pureé the raspberries in a blender or food processor. If desired, you can strain the berries through a mess sieve to remove the seeds.
  3. Prepare the whipped cream. Place a metal mixing bowl in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Pour the heavy whipping cream into the chilled bowl and use an electric mixer to beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until it reaches soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar and continue beating on high speed until stiff peaks form. Set the whipped cream aside.
  4. Beat the cream cheese on medium-high speed until it’s completely smooth and free of lumps, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add the granulated sugar and continue beating until it’s well incorporated.
  5. Next, add the melted white chocolate and beat into the cream cheese until it’s well combined.
  6. Finally, add the lemon zest and the prepared whipped cream and fold into the cream cheese, mixing from the bottom to the top until it’s completely smooth. Set aside.

To Assemble:

  1. Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared crust and spread evenly. Then spoon about 1/3 of the raspberry purée over the cream cheese and use a knife to swirl it into the batter. Repeat this two more times.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to allow the cheesecake to set. Add the toppings before serving.

For the Topping:

  1. Prepare a second batch of whipped cream following the same method as described above. Pipe the whipped cream borders using a large open star tip. Garnish with leftover raspberries.
