No Bake Lime Cheesecake Ingredients
This cheesecake recipe is egg free, so you do not have to bake it. To make this easy cheesecake dessert, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe below for exact quantities):
- Graham crackers: the graham cracker crust is my favorite part of cheesecake. I used original, but you can use flavored graham crackers.
- Cream cheese
- Lime curd: you can buy pre-made lime curd, or make your own homemade lime curd.
- Butter: always use unsalted butter when baking unless the recipe says to use salted butter.
- Lime: you can use key limes to make this a no bake key lime cheesecake, but you will need to use more key limes as they are smaller.
- Heavy whipping cream
- Raspberries: you can use fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries for this recipe. If using frozen, make sure the raspberries are fully thawed.
Special Tools Needed
How to Make No Bake Cheesecake
What makes this a no bake cheesecake is that there are no eggs. Follow these instructions to satisfy your cheesecake craving in 15 minutes!
- Make the graham cracker crust. Melt butter and combine with graham cracker crumbs. Divide mixture in half and evenly disperse into bottom of each canning jar. You do not need to press down.
- Make the cheesecake mixture. Combine cream cheese, 1 tablespoon sugar and lime juice into bowl. Mix well.
- Make the whipped cream. Whip 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff peaks form.
- Layer the cheesecake. Using a spoon or decorating tool, layer the cream cheese mixture on top of the graham cracker crumbs. Next, spoon in lime curd. Top with whipping cream layer, the rest of the graham cracker crumbs and raspberries.
If you are finding it difficult to locate lime curd, you can make this a lemon cheesecake by substituting lemon curd (Stonewall Kitchen is available in stores) and using half a lemon instead of lime.
Store the jars covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, as the crushed graham crackers will start to get soggy. Store extra whipping cream covered in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
