Frozen lime cheesecake

This is the ultimate summer dessert! It is cool, refreshing, creamy and simply divine..
My mum used to make this cake in the summer holidays when we were kids. Back in the days, when people were using coconut sun oil instead of sun cream, frying themselves in the sun. I'll never forget the time when my parents happily slapped a good amount of coconut oil on before realizing that it was off!! The smell... need I say more? Well, at least we had plenty of room on the beach that day =-)

Frozen lime cheesecake

  • 300ml whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1dl granulated sugar
  • 100gr Philadelphia cheese
  • 4 digestives
  • 2 ginger snaps
  • 1 lime
  • strawberries for garnish
Beat the cream until stiff. Add the vanilla sugar or extract.
Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff enough to form peaks.
Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and Philadelphia cheese in a third bowl. Add the juice of half a lime, and the zest of the whole fruit.
Blend the content of the three bowls together.
Crumble the digestives and the ginger snaps thoroughly and put in the base of a cake tin (with removable sides). Pour the mixture on top and put in the freezer for at least 3 hours. Remove from freezer about 20 min before serving. Garnish with strawberries and enjoy!!!
