No Bake Key Lime Frozen Tart

I’m obsessed with these no bake frozen desserts lately, are you?  There’s no heating up the stove or the oven, this luscious dessert stands alone in it’s beauty, versatility and taste.  I’ve seen a bunch of these come up on my social media sites and each one just seems better than the other.  I also like the fact that the ingredients are healthy and nutritious.  Top and dress it up with berries, kiwi or whatever fruit you have on hand.  What more can one ask for in a dessert?

A Fruit and nut vegan no-bake cheesecake

Whenever you see a dessert featured on my blog, you’ll know that we’ve had company.  You see my husband, Bert is  not into desserts as much as I am, so even if I were to try something new, I’d guarantee I’d have to eat it all on my own.  We entertain fairly frequently, so here’s my chance to try something new each time.  Here’s a dessert I’ve been wanting to try for a while.  There’s many variations to a “raw” cheesecake, one that you do not bake.  With the warmer weather here, who would want to turn on the oven anyway?  So, I was inspired when I saw Indu’s cheesecake recipe and went about trying it.   I have made truffles and other light treats before, incorporating dried fruit and nuts to get that sweet tooth fix if you know what I mean 🙂
