Very Easy No-bake Lemon Cheesecake

December 12, 2018

 

This is one of my family’s favourites.  We tend to have this as an extra at Christmas, it helps cleanse the palate!!  I don’t use gelatine in this recipe as I find it sets to a nice soft consistency without it.    

 

 

 

23cm loose bottomed tin

Serves 10

 

Nutritional information Per Serving 

512 Kcals

50g fat

3.7g net carbohydrates 

8.6g Protein

 

300g mixed nuts, (hazelnuts, brazil, almonds, pecan or macadamia)

3 tbsp. butter

 

500g full fat cream cheese

300g extra thick double cream

Juice and zest of 3 lemons

 

  • Place the nuts in a food processor and blend until they resemble breadcrumbs.  I use a nutribullet for this.  

  • Place in a bowl and add the melted butter.  Combine well.

  • Grease your tin thoroughly with butter.

  • Place the crumbled nuts into the tin and spread.  Press down until you form a solid base.

  • Place in the fridge to chill.

  • While the base is chilling, you can mix all the remaining ingredients together.

  • Pour this onto the chilled base and spread to level.

  • Place in the fridge to chill for at least 3 hours to enable the filling to set.  

  • You can decorate the top with slices of lemon or you could add some sugar free lemon curd (see recipe in this blog) or some blueberries.
