Summer days are here (for a little while longer, at least!), and I am all about the Pina Colada! Who doesn’t love that delicious combination of pineapple and coconut?? If you’re into the cocktail, you’ve probably enjoyed one or two already in this hot summer sunshine. But what I love is that it’s so easy to turn it into a mocktail for the kids!

But even better than the drink is this absolutely delicious Pina Colada Cheesecake! It’s got the same great flavor as the cocktail, but it comes in a perfectly shareable dessert form!

This recipe is actually super simple to make, and it requires no baking, no separating ingredients. Just throw everything into a bowl. It really is so easy a kid could do it, and my kids have definitely had fun with it!

Pina Colada Cheesecake ingredients

Very few ingredients are needed for this. The crust is simply crushed graham crackers and butter.

The only thing that takes any effort at all is cutting up the pineapple, but you can easily just buy it already chopped! I like using pineapple rings because then I can use them to decorate at the end. But it’s just as simple to buy a can of crushed pineapple for the filling.

While many cheesecake recipes use sour cream or heavy cream to go along with the cream cheese, this one takes it to the next level by using coconut cream! It gives that same creamy effect but adds in a new dimension of flavor, which is perfect when we’re talking about pina colada!

Since this is a no-bake recipe, you don’t even have to worry about baking it, which means you don’t have to deal with a cracked cheesecake! I suggest refrigerating overnight for the best results, but even a few hours will work if you’re short on time. And let’s face it, this cheesecake is so simple, you’re going to want it in your arsenal for the next potluck or picnic you go to!

Simply pipe on a bit of whipped cream, some pineapple rings and a few cherries, and you’re sure to have the best looking dessert no matter where you are!

  1. This sounds great! I’m not sure what size packages you’re referring to in the ingredients list though. What size package of graham crackers, cream cheese, and whipped cream did you use please?

    1. Many apologies, Jo. I’ve updated the recipe to be clearer. The graham crackers should be 1 sleeve or approximately 1 Cup crushed. Cream cheese should be 8oz. Whipped cream, I used a 12oz tub of Cool Whip, so half would be 6oz or so. You can absolutely use an 8oz tub, though and use more or less per your preference. 🙂 I hope this helps!
