    I want to make a cheesecake but I don’t have any sour cream. Does anyone have a recipe that does not use sour cream? I have access to heavy cream, Greek
    Yogurt, and cream cheese.

    Try a different recipe. Not all of them contain sour cream. Heavy cream will work but you'll need to add another egg to compensate.

    The original Juniors recipe used no sour cream. There is also a recipe at King Arthur flour that doesn’t either.

    i would think your greek yogurt would work fine as a substitute with perhaps a boost in sugar and a touch more vanilla.

    I googled a few words and got several recipes for Greek yoghurt cheesecake. Some baked and others no-bake. Some even looked worth trying.

    Sour cream just adds the tang and nothing else.
    You can skip it for a more mellow result, or you can add in some lemon juice to taste.

    When it is hot and I don't want to bake I cheat. Cream cheese mixed into Cool Whip then spread in a graham cracker crust. In the fridge to firm up. Top with fresh fruit from the garden or even with pie filling from the can... yes this is cheating, yes it is tasty! I have blended melted chocolate into the cream cheese/Cool Whip mixture then topped with shaved dark chocolate for a change of pace...
