Who loves Cheesecake?!
Yeah I know silly question! 😉
But who loves a quick and easy NO BAKE cheesecake?!!!
Just whip this up in 2 minutes and then allow to set in the fridge for a few hours and then voila! 🙂
- 250g plain biscuits (I used Marie)
- 125g butter, cubed, softened
- 370g cream cheese (room temp. – this is very important!)
- 400g condensed milk
- 250g thickened cream
- 75g lime juice
- lime zest
Place peel of lime into TM bowl and zest 5 sec / speed 9.
Tip: if you have a microplane this will make the zest more fine which I prefer for this recipe. Set aside.
- Place biscuits and butter into TM bowl and chop 10 sec / speed 10. Scrape down and repeat.
- Press biscuit mix firmly into lined spring form tin. Place tin into fridge while preparing the cheesecake mixture.
- Place cream cheese into TM bowl and mix 10 sec / speed 8. Scrape down and repeat.
- Add condensed milk and cream and mix 10 sec / speed 7. Scrape down and repeat.
Add juice and mix 15 sec / speed 4.
NB: the juice needs to be added last. The reaction of the citrus juice will start to set your mixture almost immediately.
- With aid of spatula scrape down and ensure all is mixed well.
- Immediately pour mixture on top of biscuit base, sprinkle zest on top and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
- Best served straight from fridge.
Lemon can be substituted for the lime.
Do NOT try and use orange - it doesn't work! Trust me!
