I was thinking of ways I could combine some of my favorite things into recipes. One thing I love? Champagne. Another? Cheesecake! Boozy desserts are where it’s at. With those two things in mind, I created this delicious no-bake champagne cheesecake recipe. It’s so easy to make and SO delicious!

Ingredients

There are four layers to today’s dessert: a graham cracker crust, a white chocolate champagne cheesecake, a fresh strawberry layer, and a homemade fluffy champagne whipped cream.

Crust

  • Graham Cracker Crumbs – make a crumbly, delicious base layer for this cheesecake.
  • Unsalted Butter – binds the graham cracker crumbs together so it can hold its layer.

Two-ingredient crust has never tasted so good. Next up? The filling!

Filling

  • White Chocolate – adds a creaminess and richness to the filling.
  • Powdered Sugar – sweetens and thickens the filling.
  • Cream Cheese – gives more texture and a bit of tang.
  • Champagne – gives that apple-y, citrusy champagne flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract – adds a vanilla bean flavor.
  • Cool Whip – gives a fluffiness to the filling.

So thick and creamy, this filling is to die for!

Whipped Cream

  • Powdered Sugar – thickens and sweetens the whipped topping.
  • Heavy Cream – the base for the whipped cream. Pro tip: use VERY cold heavy cream.
  • Champagne – adds more of the champagne flavor to balance out the sweetness of the other ingredients.
  • Vanilla Extract – adds flavor.

A melt-in-your-mouth whipped cream? Yes please!

Variations

The fun thing about this no-bake champagne cheesecake recipe is that you can really customize it however you want!

  • No champagne? Don’t like champagne? No problem! Try making a non-alcoholic, kid-friendly version by swapping out the champagne with either sparkling apple or sparkling grape juice.
  • For different cheesecake flavor ideas, try replacing the filling from this recipe with the filling from another no-bake cheesecake recipe like my Lighter Lemon Walnut No Bake Cheesecakes Recipe or my funfetti cake batter dip.
  • An alternative crust idea would be swapping out the graham cracker with another type of cookie, like chocolate chip cookies or even Oreos!
  • It also might be fun to replace the fresh strawberry layer with a fruity pie filling or another fresh fruit like raspberries!
  • Pressed for time? Ditch the homemade whipped cream and used the canned variety instead.

The moral of the story is, the possibilities really are endless! What are some other ways you might customize this recipe? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
