Berry & lime cheesecake in a glass

Berry & lime cheesecake in a glass

This is a light version of a cheesecake served in a glass for easy portioning! Condensed milk will thicken when lime or lemon juice is added making the filling set perfectly without the need for gelatine!

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour

What you need:

  • 125g (5oz) low fat oat or digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 30g (1oz) low fat spread, melted
  • 300g tub low fat cream cheese
  • 200g Carnation Condensed Milk
  • Zest and juice of 3 limes
  • 200g (7oz) summer fruits sauce
  • 150g (5½oz) fresh or frozen and defrosted berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackcurrants

What you do:

  1. Process the biscuits to coarse crumbs in a blender or using a strong food bag and a rolling pin. Tip the crumbs into a bowl and mix with the melted low fat spread. Mix well. Divide the crumbs between 4 serving glasses and press down with the back of a spoon slightly.
  2. Beat the cream cheese and condensed milk together for 3-4 minutes until smooth and slightly aerated. Add the zest and juice of the limes, which will thicken the mixture. Spoon over the crumbs and chill until set.
  3. To serve, tumble over a few freshly washed berries and top with the sauce.
