I love no bake cheesecakes, and this Easy No Bake Key Lime Cheesecake does not disappoint. It is rich and creamy, and also incredibly easy to put together with a secret ingredient!

Are you ready? Instead of key lime juice which isn’t often available in Kansas (the woes of small town country living), I used Mountain Zevia, a natural lime flavored soda. I know it sounds crazy to not use lime juice in a key lime recipe, but trust me. This is so good and different, your guests will be begging for more!

And anything served in a jar gets extra points from me!

Easy Lime No Bake Cheesecake

Yield: 6


  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon sugar, seperated
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp Mountain Zevia soda or lime juice
  • 4 oz whipped topping, plus a little extra for garnish
  • key lime slices for garnish, if desired
  • graham cracker crumbs for garnish, if desired


  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter until combined.
  2. Divide the graham cracker crumb mixture evenly among six mason jars*. Gently press down to make the crust, but be careful to not press it down too hard. It needs to be loose enough to eat!
  3. Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, Mountain Zevia soda or key lime juice together in a mixer until smooth.
  4. Gently stir in whipped topping. You can also add a few drops of green food coloring if you wish.
  5. Carefully spoon (or pipe), cheesecake mixture into the six jars.
  6. Top with whipped topping and garnish with key lime slices and graham cracker crumbs, if desiredRefrigerate for about 2 hours or until firm.


* I used Walmart's store brand of 8oz jars. They have no markings and have a unique shape.
