This Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake Pie is the perfect way to beat the heat this summer! The creamy cheesecake and buttery crust bring together the traditional elements of the dessert, while the raspberries add a burst of summer fruitiness. Pop it in the freezer to make it a delicious and cooling refresher!
Why We Love Frozen Raspberry Cheesecake Pie
Hot days call for cool treats, and what’s more refreshing than frozen fruity goodness? When the day is so hot you can barely hear yourself think, pull your frozen raspberry cheesecake pie out of the freezer and watch everyone’s crankiness melt away.
The adults can enjoy a raspberry Pink Champagne Float on the side, while the kids sip on some raspberry lemonade (just use our lemonade recipe and add some muddled raspberries!). This yummy dessert is light enough to be a refreshing midday snack, but substantial enough to satiate that post-dinner sweet tooth.
And guess what – you can make it ahead and have it ready to pull out of the freezer!
Ingredients to Make This Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe
Start with graham crackers and butter to create your simple cheesecake pie crust!
Then, all you’ll need is whipping cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, fresh raspberries, lemon juice, and vanilla to create the delectable raspberry cheesecake filling!
How to Make This Cheesecake Pie
Step 1: Mix Crust
In a small bowl, combine your graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until it the mixture can be pressed into a 9-inch pie plate.
Step 2: Beat Whipping Cream
In a large bowl, beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form, and then set it aside until Step 5.
Step 3: Beat Cream Cheese
In a separate large bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until it’s smooth.
Step 4: Add Raspberries
Add the fresh raspberries, lemon juice, and vanilla to the cream cheese mixture. Beat everything together until it’s combined.
Step 5: Fold in Whipped Cream
Fold the whipped cream into the raspberry cream cheese mixture until just combined.
Step 6: Assemble and Freeze
Add the raspberry cream cheese mixture to your pie crust. Freeze the dessert for a minimum of 4 hours, but preferably overnight for best results.
Step 7: Serve and Enjoy!
Serve your raspberry cheesecake pie with fresh raspberries on top, and a drizzle of chocolate if you’d like! Enjoy!
Store it overnight if you’re going to serve it the next day or two, but beyond that, you’ll want to store it in the freezer. Cover it the best you can – ideally, you’d wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in a freezer bag. If you’re storing it for a while, allow it to freeze overnight and then cut it into segments to then return to the freezer in airtight containers.
Yes, you sure can! Make a variation on this recipe by substituting another fruit like blueberry, strawberry, or cherry. Maybe even a combination of a couple if you’re brave! 🙂
You can defrost your cheesecake by simply allowing it to rest in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight). I prefer to eat this cheesecake on the frostier side, so I only allow it to defrost for a few hours.
