NO BAKE CHEESECAKE WITH LEMON CURD FILLING – Low Carb, Sugar Free, Gluten Free
This no bake cheesecake with hidden lemon curd filling is scrumptious! The no bake cheesecake is so rich and creamy while the surprise lemon curd filling is so refreshing! I can probably eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner! But I won’t…
I started to crave lemons about two months ago, which made me want to eat my Lemon Jello Cheesecake from about a year ago so badly, so I made it last month and also updated the recipe and video. However, I still craved lemons somehow, so I made this no bake cheesecake with lemon curd filling hidden inside. (I’m still craving lemons though…)
I’m not a big fan of no bake crusts, but I decided to go with no bake crust for this cheesecake, using toasted nuts. At the first attempt I used 1 cup of walnuts and 1/2 cup of pecans, but the bitterness of the walnuts spoiled the cheesecake, so I decided to use less walnuts and more almonds, which turned out great 🙂
