This quick cheesecake recipe serves one portion and is a real treat that can be made in under 2 minutes! The cheesecake recipe takes “food cheats” to a new level because in this no bake recipe you don’t even “bother” to make a cheesecake base at all!
You can use this recipe and method to make a cheesecake base by crushing the biscuits, adding melted butter, then reforming the base and chilling – but why go to all that extra time if you just want a quick cheesecake taste?
All ingredients used are “store cupboard” and long life ingredients, except the milk – and even there you could use dried powdered milk and make it on demand if you wished!
- 2 digestive biscuits
- 2-3 teaspoons of lemon curd
- 10 grams of Dream Topping, Angel Whip in the US
- 40 grams of full fat milk
- Place the biscuits on your plate and spread them with lemon curd.
- Weigh out 10 grams of Dream Topping and 40 grams of full fat milk – this ratio of 1 part Dream Topping to 4 parts milk is the ratio if you wish to make more than just two cheesecakes! These measurements are for a Single Portion. Whisk the powder and the milk together for 30-60 seconds, by which time it will be forming peaks and going stiff.
- Spoon the thick creamy Dream Topping onto the top of the biscuit base and lemon curd
This no bake cheesecake recipe is something you can make on a whim. I make them to save myself from having to buy individual cheesecakes in the supermarket.
Price Per No Bake Cheesecake:
The biscuits I’ve used are the Lidl Tower Gate Digestive Biscuits. These currently cost 31p for a packet containing about 27 biscuits, so that’s just over 2p for two biscuits. The lemon curd is a cheap jar, at 30p, so I’ve probably used 2p of lemon curd. 10 grams of Dream Topping, which is a cost of approximately 10p. The milk is about 40ml, so costs about 4-5p.
The total cost could therefore be about 10p per no bake cheesecake! Instant and frugal, what’s not to like?
