Skinny No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

By now you should all know I’m a big fan of no-bake desserts! Remember the No-Bake Mason Jar Cheesecakes I made for the Fourth of July? Or what about the No-Bake Snicker’s Bar Pie I made for Pi Day?

So it’s almost mandatory that I make No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake for National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day!

I love this recipe because it’s really creamy and light. And I like to use low-fat cream cheese and cool-whip to make it super low in calories in fat. So not only is it delicious, but it’s also guilt-free!

And even better -- it takes less than 10 minutes to put together!

Also, if you decide you want to make it into an appetizer, you can serve it as a dip in a bowl with graham crackers or vanilla wafers.

You could also layer the filling in a mason jar with graham cracker crumbs and make cute little personalized mason jar cheesecakes.

Bottom line: This is a very quick, low fat, and versatile dessert that would make a great addition to your next fall dinner.

Skinny No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake
