No-Bake Lime Cheesecake Recipe

Being from the Sunshine State, I love any recipe containing citrus. This one, featuring lime, is quick to mix up and disappears almost as fast. Substitute orange juice, zest and slices for the lime to get another great cheesecake variation.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 18, 2012

"Other people liked this more than I did. It has more of a key lime pie texture and a really fresh flavor to it, but taking into consideration how many calories this must have, I'd rather have something chocolate. :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2011

"I made this recipe and had to make a few adjustments on the fly. I did not have any lime juice or zest so I substituted 2-6 oz containers of key lime yogurt and also used a store bought graham cracker pie crust instead of making the one in the recipe since I did not have the graham cracker ingredients already at home.

This came out great despite the substitutions and I will make it again.
Great recipe!"
