Vanilla and Ricotta Cheesecake with Lime Curd Swirls (GF)


Vanilla and Ricotta Cheesecake with Lime Curd Swirls – This was my entry to a competition where the criteria was that it needed to make 12 slices and be less than 350 calories per slice

This is a really yummy, creamy cheesecake with a crunchy caramel base which has been enjoyed by a few people in my village 🙂


Another plus point is it’s an easy peasy no bake delight.
