Nobody wants to heat up their kitchen during the hot summer months to bake a dessert. With a few simple ingredients, you can easily and effortlessly whip up these creamy no-bake cheesecakes that are perfect when that sweet tooth strikes.

I used crushed vanilla sandwich cookies as the crust, but I think just about any flavor of cookie could work in this recipe. The filling is super simple and consists of softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt and your favorite boxed cake mix. So easy, right? You can even make the filling up to two days ahead of time if you want to make these for a party or gathering and are tight on time.
