No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake

No-bake key lime cheesecake

So the summer started and the days are growing longer and the weather is getting warmer & warmer and I want nothing but fresh fruits, salads, frozen yogurt, key lime lemonade or as we say in Farsi Sharbat Ab-limoo.

Sharbat Ab-limo is made from fresh squeezed lime, sugar, water and ice and is one of the most refreshing drinks you can have during summer. I'm a huge fan of no bake items during the summer, specially no bake cheesecakes.

This cool, refreshing, and creamy dessert fits all the criteria to be one of the best summer desserts. You can make it ahead of time, put it in the freezer for 20 minutes and then keep in the fridge and just serve when you're ready.
