No-Bake Lime Cheesecake

No Bake Lime Cheesecake

Hi Everyone,

There’s something about a good cheesecake that is simply irresistible. They make brilliant desserts, especially if light and fluffy like this lime cheesecake.

I love the fact that it is no bake and easy – in fact best – to make a day ahead of time. In this recipe I divided the mixture into 4 individual sized portions but you can also use a 20 cm spring form and serve slices instead of a whole or half a tartlet. In this case the filling ends up being somewhat higher in proportion to the base.
