Pretty much every year for my Dad's birthday in November, he requests a pumpkin cheesecake from my mom to make. We enjoy this dessert every year- it is a treat for us all! I love cheesecake anything and pumpkin in the fall is just perfect. I created these no-bake pumpkin cheesecakes for a delicious dessert that requires no oven and is healthier and lighter than normal.
Once fall hits, I am mourning the loss of my favorite summer produce but fall food is so fun too. Everything is pumpkin or apple flavored. A hot bowl of chili sounds amazing. Tailgate food is in full swing. When it comes time to make a dessert, try these easy pumpkin cheesecakes which make the perfect fall dessert.
I added protein powder for a boost of protein. I used Neufchatel cream cheese for a little less fat. Real pumpkin was used instead of just pumpkin pie spice like some recipes have for vitamins A and C. I made these in little jars because they are just too cute! You can also make them in a bigger container but if you wish.
