Pineapple Cheesecake (No Bake)

I have been making this No-Bake Pineapple Cheesecake for years and it is still one of our favorite desserts

Strawberries, strawberries ... right, I love strawberries, but really, after a month of reading, looking, pinning and eating strawberries, I've had enough. This Pineapple Cheesecake, which is a no-bake recipe, is an amazingly creamy dessert.

I decided to move on to a more tropical kind of fruit.  Nothing says tropical to me more than Pineapple. And Coconut and... you get the idea.

This recipe was on the back of a Moirs box of jello, which I had cut-out and stapled into one of my cookbooks shortly after getting married. I have been using this easy recipe for years and we still love it.

I did, however, make small changes to the recipe, but I doubt Moirs will mind - as long as I keep on buying their product. No, they're not asking me or paying me to say anything about their goodies .. I wish!

Pineapple Cheesecake (No Bake)

10 Servings


1 box Pineapple Jello
200 ml Boiling Water
1 can (410g) Pineapple Pieces
250g Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Fresh Cream     {double cream/whipping cream}
1 packet Cookies (I use Tennis Biscuits - use your favorite i.e Graham Crackers)


1.) Drain the Pineapple pieces and retain 150ml of the syrup.
2.) Dissolve the Jello in the Boiling water - stir until fully dissolved and add the retained syrup from the Pineapple pieces, mix well and place in fridge until set halfway (Do stir every now and then to break up pieces setting on the sides of your bowl).
3.) Whisk the Fresh Cream until stiff peaks form.
4.) Add the Fresh Cream and Cream Cheese to the half-set jelly and mix well to combine.
5.) Add the Pineapple pieces and mix well again. (Keep a few pieces to decorate)
6.) Use a rectangular (20 x 30cm / 13 x 9 inches) dish and arrange Biscuits/Cookies on the base - pour over half of the Cheesecake mixture.
7.) Arrange a second layer of Biscuits/Cookies over the Cheesecake and then the remaining Cheesecake mixture.
8.) Decorate with the retained pieces of Pineapple and crumble a cookie or two over.
9.) Refrigerate until set - around 4 - 5 hours.

Serve well chilled.

  11. This looks delicious. i wonder what is a good American choice for the cookies (tennis biscuits) you used. the ones you used look thick enough that i originally guessed it was a cake type recipe. I was thinking Vanilla Wafers, but have any other Americans tried this recipe that you can give us some ideas? I get that the jelly is jello, I can use cool whip for the cream.

  12. I have never heard of pineapple jelly but it sounds delish. Thanks so much for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you next week.
