TIPS

Follow these tips to get the best results when you make this no-bake lemon cheesecake.

  • Eat it fresh. The longer you let it set in the refrigerator, the more the flavor will diminish.
  • Use almond flour, not almond meal. If you use almond meal, the crust will taste extra grainy, which might be distracting. This guide explains more.
  • Soften the cream cheese first. This will make it easier to fluff and mix.

  1. I’ve signed up for the 28 Day Reset starting September 6. This sounds delish. Where can I find the “ 1 recipe sugar-free lemon curd ” recipe? Thanks!

    1. I found the lemon curd recipe, but it indicates “20” servings. I also see I can toggle the amount that I want to make, which alters the measurements. Would I use the entire “20 servings” recipe for this dessert? Is it possible to translate the “one curd recipe” into cups? Thanks in advance!
