No Bake Lime Cheesecake
Although it’s not REALLY summer yet, I always desire Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the season. Let’s kick things off with a recipe for lime cheesecake that's totally no bake (you don’t need to activate your oven!) then refreshing and bursting with flavor that you’ll desire you’re eating it sitting next to the water enjoying a light-weight breeze. That’s the simplest , right?!
I’ve always encouraged readers to send me their favorite recipes, and nearly two years ago Mary shared this no bake lime cheesecake with me, saying that this is often her most requested recipe. After making it, I could totally understand why! It’s absolutely stunning to seem at, the feel is creamy perfection and therefore the flavor is bright, refreshing, but not overpowering.
How to make :
The lime cheesecake starts with a Nilla wafer crust, which may be a little deviation from the normal cracker crust. Mary said that she prefers the Nilla wafers, as she found the cracker crust a touch too overpowering for this cheesecake.
The filling consists of juice , cream and chocolate , which it beaten into cheese that has been sweetened with lime zest-infused sugar. Finally, topping is folded into the mixture to offer it a mousse-like texture.
Gelatin is employed to stabilize the whole filling, keeping it nice and firm, which makes slicing a breeze.
While many no bake cheesecakes are made with sweetened milk , this one skips the sweetened milk in favor of the chocolate and gelatin, which i feel makes for a superior filling. Not too sweet, and an ideal mousse-like consistency once the topping is folded in.
TIPS for creating :
Below are some recipe notes which will be helpful when making the cheesecake:
Fresh lime juice is important for the flavor; resist using bottled lime juice. If you can't find fresh key limes, use equal amounts of juice and juice .
Do not use the zest of the key limes – the peel is just too thin. Use regular limes for the zest within the recipe.
If you’d sort of a frozen texture, rather than refrigerating overnight, place the cheesecake within the freezer overnight and serve straight from the freezer. you'll also wrap the cheesecake in wrapping , then foil, and freeze for up to 1 month.
