No-bake Nutella Cheesecake pots for World Nutella Day

Happy “World Nutella Day ! Yup, it’s a thing! Originally created by Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso, World Nutella Day is a day to celebrate, get creative with, and most importantly, eat Nutella.  In 2015, Sara transferred World Nutella® Day to Ferrero (the makers of Nutella®) to help it live on and grow for years to come.

World Nutella Day on

It’s the 17th iteration of this auspicious day and my 14th year participating.

In 2010 I made a Nutella cheesecake, in 2011 I made Nutella lamingtons, in 2012 I went French with Nutella macarons craquelés,  in 2013, I made Nutella truffle pops. in 2014 I made a flourless hazelnut-chocolate Nutella-inspired cake, in 2015 I made a chocolate-hazelnut smoothie in 2016, I made Nutella éclairs, in 2017 I made Nutella pots de crème, in 2018 I made Chocolate -Hazelnut Financiers, in 2019, I made Nutella Twists and Palmiers, in 2020 I made Chocolate Hazelnut Bliss Bites in 2021, I made a Nutella Hot Chocolate and last year I made a No-Bake Pot de de Crème.

This year, I’ve chosen another no-bake dessert – a light Nutella cheesecake served in a little ramekin for an individual sweet treat! So easy to whip up (and so easy to eat!).

This quick and easy dessert only uses 2 tablespoons of Nutella so if you have a pot languishing in the back of the pantry (who WOULD??), it’s the perfect way to use it up (unless you just eat it out of the jar LOL!).

Yield: 4-6

Easy no-bake individual Nutella cheesecake pots. For World Nutella Day... or anytime!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Chill Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup (125mL) heavy (35%) cream
  • 125g (half a brick)cream cheese, slightly softened
  • 1/4 cup (approx. 63g) plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella


  1. In a large bowl, whip the cream with a handheld electric mixer on high speed until it forms soft peaks, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  1. In a separate bowl (no need to wash the beaters after you’ve whipped the cream), beat the cream cheese and yogurt until smooth.
  2. Add the Nutella to the cream cheese and continue to beat until creamy.
  3. Gently fold the whipped cream, a little bit (approx. 2 tablespoons) at a time, into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. You can pipe or spoon this into individual ramekins now or later. Set aside and refrigerate for approx. 4 hours.


You absolutely can eat this straight away but it tastes nicer once it's "set" a little in the fridge.
