No Bake Lemon Cheesecake Recipe

No Bake Lemon Cheesecake


  • 200g digestive biscuits (I used sweetmeal)
  • 100g butter
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 150ml double cream
  • 75g icing sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon (or 2 if you really like lemon)

How to make No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

I adore this dessert. It's SO easy and tastes delicious. You can add your own twist too by adding ginger or trying different fruits and juices.

  1. Put all the biscuits into a food bag, hold the end and crush the biscuits with the end of a rolling pin or something similar. Alternately, grind with the back of a large wooden spoon in a mixing bowl.
  2. When you have lots of small crumbs in a mixing bowl, add the butter. I find melting it before helps this stage a lot.
  3. Mix the base mixture together, to create a moist biscuit base.
  4. Fill an 8" cake tin or something similar with the mixture, and press down with the back of a spoon, and leave in the fridge to set.
  5. Add the cream cheese to the double cream in a mixing bowl and whisk until you have a thick, creamy mixture.
  6. Add the icing sugar and lemon juice and anything else you wish to add, and mix in until smooth and thick.
  7. Add on top of the biscuit base, and spread evenly.
  8. Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours until the topping has set.
  9. Enjoy!

    This was delicious when we made it. Unfortuantly, the creamy bit was a little sloppy, but lovely and lemony, so we enjoyed it the same. Lovely recipe xx

    I have made this about 5 times and I absolutely love it. I have also shared the recipe with a few friends. It's so refreshing. I've lots of lovely comments about it and it never gets wasted. My tip is to freeze it after you've made it to help it set better.
