Easy No-Bake Low-Fat Citrus Cheesecake

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
Recipe by echo echo

Tasty light dessert. This could also be made in a spring-form pan. The cracker crumbs add some crunch, rather than being a full-blown crust. Cooking time is actually chilling time.

I made this without the graham cracker crumbs as a pudding. I used sugar-free lime jello. It screamed at me to add a can of crushed pineapple so I did. I'm very glad I did...reminds me of those lime jello salads. I don't think it would normally be dense enough to call a cheesecake but it is very creamy and rich. Made for Zaar Tag.
