Lime and ginger cheesecake is a creamy no-bake cheesecake suitable for all occasions, from dessert at a dinner party to part of a buffet. This cheesecake makes individual servings which makes it perfect for dishing up at a dinner party and if you're entertaining a big group you can easily double the ingredients to make enough for everyone. This lime and ginger cheesecake is super light and no-bake, and the filling is perfectly whipped to make it really airy, which is a nice change from the sometimes quite stodgey cheesecake recipes you can get. You'll find yourself making this time and time again as it's so easy.
