Dena the Kiwi Lime is such a refreshing flavor and great during the warmer months especially when you desire something light and refreshing but not too heavy. We loved my newly created dessert, and it looks impressive when brought to the table but it is not hard to make at all.

You are welcome Dena, and I would be willing to bet that once you have had it you will want to make it again. I also did another version using lime NO BAKE KIWI-LIME GLAZED CHEESECAKE I garnished the top with Kiwi & maraschino cherries and Lime Glaze, you might want to try this one too. The texture is so creamy and smooth. and so refreshing.

Dena although these two didn't make with the other 18 lemon desserts, You may also enjoy one of our favorite Summer time lemon Desserts, although it is good all year long FAVORITE LEMON GLAZED CHEESECAKE The tartness from the lemon glaze actually enhances the cheesecake flavor.
