I love easy, no-bake desserts, especially in the summer. Who wants to turn on the oven when they don’t have to, right? I whipped up these key lime cheesecake cups using Dannon® Oikos® Traditional Greek Yogurt in just 15 minutes. Make them a few hours in advance and keep them cold until ready to serve for a refreshing treat. My, oh my, were they a hit with my kids!
Ingredients for Key Lime Cheesecake Cups
Very few ingredients are needed for this easy key lime cheesecake but yogurt is a must. I headed out to my local Walmart to pick up some Dannon® Oikos® Traditional Greek Yogurt. They have so many great varieties that it is hard to choose. (Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post for a special offer!)
Since my whole family love yogurt so much I love having my refrigerator stocked for a quick snack or breakfast on the go. I like that it has a lot of protein to keep you feeling satisfied. Did you know that each 5.3 oz container has 150 calories and 11 grams of protein? Of course I picked up extra flavors like Dannon® Oikos® Orange Cream Traditional Greek Yogurt.
For this recipe you’ll also need a brick of cream cheese, some graham crackers or vanilla wafers and a fresh lime for garnish.
How to Make a Key Lime Cheesecake Cups
You’ll need to beat your softened cream cheese and yogurt cup together. For added flavor and sweetness, I did add in some extra sugar and vanilla. You could also include a bit of lime zest if you like. I used the zest as garnish instead of blending it in.
You’ll need to crush up your graham crackers or vanilla wafers. I like to put them in a sealed bag and let my rolling pin go to work.
You’ll need four 6 oz individual parfait glasses or small cups for this no bake cheesecake but you can easily half, double or triple this recipe.
Then you’ll spoon 1/4 cup or so of crushed graham crackers into each cup and then top with your cream cheese mixture. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve, at least 15 minutes. You could serve it right away if needed but it is nice to give the cheesecake a chance to set if you can.
I had some toasted coconut on hand leftover and used that for a garnish along with a fresh lime slice and zest. It adds a ton of delicious flavor but you can skip that as well.
