Easy No-Bake Jello Cheesecake

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Manda

Ok, so it's not a "traditional" cheesecake, but it's easy and tastes soooo good!! My grandmother used to make this all the time when I was little, and it still takes me back to my childhood whenever I eat it. This is great to take to picnics, potlucks, etc., and for some reason, just seems to taste even better in the summertime! Prep. time includes refrigerating time.

Note from Manda: When whipping the milk, make sure you use a chilled glasss bowl and chilled beaters, same as if you were making a meringue. It will peak nicely for you:) ~Manda
