When the Romans conquered Greece, the recipe was one of the many spoils of war. They modified the dessert to include crushed cheese and eggs and served it on special occasions.

Flavors of Cheesecake to Try

Plain cheesecake is a great dessert for when you just want something simple and basic. When you're in the mood for something more complex, there are a number of cheesecake flavors we encourage you to try! Of course, the simplest involve pouring a fruit or chocolate syrup over the cheesecake. This is a great way to add some extra flavor to your cheesecake without going overboard.

If it's fall, try some pumpkin cheesecake. This is probably a cheesecake flavor you've never had before! Pumpkin cheesecake is a great alternative to pumpkin pie, and will surely surprise and please your guests. Gingerbread cheesecake is a great choice for the winter, especially if you've grown bored of gingerbread men.

White chocolate cheesecake is a fancy cheesecake flavor that is deliciously savory and sweet. Add some raspberry into the recipe to give it an extra degree of flair. If simplicity is what you're looking for, a lemon cheesecake is sure to delight. If you want something that's perfect for summer (especially since these are no-bake cheesecakes), a lime cheesecake is a great one to try.

There are hundreds of cheesecake flavors out there. You'll want to try as many of them as you can, which means you'll be returning to these no-bake cheesecake recipes a lot! Be sure to bookmark this page so you can return to it frequently.
