For Memorial Day I made raspberry lemonade cheesecakes in a jar; featuring COOL WHIP whipped topping. They turned out delicious! The best part was they were super easy to make! These are the perfect summer treat. YUM!

COOL WHIP recipe

{No bake} raspberry lemonade cheesecake


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1 individual pkg
  • 7 TB butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 14 oz COOL WHIP whipped topping thawed
  • 1/2 stick softened cream cheese, optional
  • 12 oz can frozen raspberry lemonade thawed
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) sweetened condensed milk


  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Mix until well combined. Press crumbs in the bottom of 8 jars or a 9x9 pan.
  2. In a large bowl combine COOL WHIP, frozen raspberry lemonade, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Stir until smooth. Spoon onto graham cracker crust.
  3. Freeze for 3-5 hours. Let thaw 10 minutes before serving.

Tip: You can add in a 1/2 stick of cream cheese, but I left it out since I didn’t have any. ;) I thought it was the perfect texture. Nice and creamy! You can also use a pre-made pie crust to make this dessert even easier. You can mix up the flavors and colors for different occasions. Also, I found the jars at Target. :)

    You had right up until I had to freeze it…. I was hoping to make this while camping. How much impact does the freezing have on this treat?

      Hi. I’m Pam. This recipe looks so good. I haven’t tried it as yet but, certainly plan to. However, having to freeze it first may not be necessary. Refrigerating it probably helps it to set. If camping, you could probably put it in a cooler with ice to help it set and keep cold. I hope this helpes.

    Sounds amazing! What a fun idea. Just a quick question. Where did you find those cute little jars? I just love the size! And I can’t wait to try this recipe. :)

    These look really yummy. Can’t wait to try them. Thanks for posting.

      I left it out this time… but just add in 1/2 stick softened cream cheese with the cool whip mixture. thanks for stopping by!

    Made your delicious recipe today for Father’s Day. It was so good. It was creamy, tangy, & refreshing. I will definitely be making this one again and again. I did use the 12 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. In addition I included the cream cheese and I put in the juice of half a basket of raspberries. I put them through a sieve so I wouldn’t get seeds. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

    I used 2 martini glasses, then filled a 6 hole cupcake pan (with wrappers) and put the small amount of extra raspberry in the fridge until it was back to koolwhip form, put it on graham crackers and froze!

    I have the same question as others but it doesn’t look like it has been answered! Did you really use only 4 oz of a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk or did you use a whole can! Can’t wait to make these – they look yummy!

  9. Debbie

    Hi, So want to make these but can’t seem to locate your actual recipie! I did subscribe and like you on FB. What am I doing wrong? Help!

    • Jamielyn

      Hi Debbie! Sorry about that, for some reason the recipe disappeared. It should be there now. If you’re still having issues I can e-mail the recipe. It’s super yummy! Have a great weekend!

    Looks like from all the comments that there is a typo on your recipe but thanks to other comments it seems 14oz of the condensed milk is what this calls for. Please update… Hope this turns out at good as it looks. Thanks!! ;-)

    Oh my this must be delicious, I love cheese cakes and I LOOOOVE that juice! Every time I go to USA I spend the whole summer drinking that because we don’t have it here! I’m going to try it this summer!
    It would be so cool if you could join my Link Party on Sundays and the Pin Hop on Thursdays.

    Hope you are having a lovely day

    Hi, I just discovered this beautiful dessert and join with a group of oh so many other “commenters” wondering if you really meant 4 oz. of sweetened condensed milk (itcomes in a 14 oz. can). One would think it’s a mistake in printing but the numer four is placed where the first number would be typed. If there was a space and then a 4 it might look like the one just didn’t get published. I know you probably meant it to be a 14 but it’s never been corrected or have you ever responded to many people who questioned you. Please help us out…..thanks so much.
