    This was lovely! I added 200g more cream cheese (just because) and topped it with fresh sliced kiwi fruit. Lovely!  -  08 Jan 2015


    Works very well without the gelatine glaze. I found I needed to add another lime and another tbsp of sugar to adjust to my taste. Great recipe.  -  10 Dec 2017


    It was not easy finding a no-bake lime cheesecake recipe that is vegetarian (that does not use gelatin), but this recipe was one of the few! I'm pleased to say the recipe came out fantastic. Truly a magnificent recipe. I topped the cheesecake with coconut flakes, the flavors go really well together.  -  10 May 2017
