5 easy ingredients! My grandmother's recipe for cheesecake...simple , yet good! Top with fresh fruit or chocolate chips (even change the crust to chocolate cookie crust)
- 8 ounces soft cream cheese
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Gradually add milk and stir until well mixed.
- Blend in juice and extract.
- Turn into a prepared graham cracker crust. Refrigerate for about 4 hours before serving.
I have been wanting to make a no bake cheesecake as my baked ones didn't come out as I expected, so this was good for me. It turned out just great, I followed the recipe in every way but for one thing, I used a sachet of gelatine as I thought it was a bit loose and it set in the fridge in an hour as that was all the time I had. I didn't put anything with it as we like it plain with just the lemon flavour and it was a definite pleaser.I made the base with digestive biscuits and butter, we don't have graham crakers in Scotland but I believe they are very similar. I am sorry the picture isn't that good and the pie dish is just awful but I just wanted to show how it can turn out. thank you for a real easy recipe.
The No Bake cheesecake is so good but this was my first trying cheese cake in my life. And somethings you have to try something new with food. But here was a problem i never tried fresh lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk, and cream cheese in a cheesecake but it is really good tho.
I added orange zest & fresh squeezed juice to mine and omitted the vanilla and put it in a chocolate crust. The condensed milk gives it a bit of a slimy texture, so be sure to let it chill for as long as possible. It was just ok, the best parts were the crust and orange zing I varied from the recipe.
