No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake Recipe – graham cracker crust, light and lemony no-bake cheesecake – SO good. THE BEST no-bake cheesecake EVER! Great with fresh berries.
This No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake is crazy good! It is hands down the best no-bake cheesecake we’ve ever eaten. This only took a few minutes to whip together and it sits in the fridge until you are ready to serve it. It will be set after a few hours, but it is 100 times better if you can let it refrigerate overnight. It takes a lot of self-restraint, but it is totally worth the wait!
This cheesecake has a somewhat unusual ingredient for cheesecake – evaporated milk. You whip the evaporated milk to make the cheesecake light and fluffy. Before this recipe, I had never whipped a can of evaporated milk. It whips up quickly. Make sure to use a large bowl, because it expands a lot when you whip it.
