I’m following this FREE keto sweets cookbook to make Ice-cream, dessert, bread, fat bombs, cheesecake, snacks and a lot of yummy & healthy recipes. I ❤ the book.
This no-bake lemon cheesecake is indulgently sweet and creamy with a zesty kick of citrus. The sumptuous topping is rich in flavor and fats, combining cream cheese with heavy cream. The base is formed from ground almonds and provides the perfect biscuit crunch to complement the creamy topping.
A crowd-pleasing dessert, this is ideal to make in advance for dinner parties or a decadent weekend treat.
