Pink Lemonade Cheesecake

I have discovered the most amazing and
simple summer dessert that is just going
to wow your guests (and yourself!!)

I saw this amazing no bake cheesecake on
Pinterest and immediately wanted to try it
for a summer Sunday dinner.  
had developed it from a recipe
by Jennie at One Sweet Mess for
her gluten free lemonade dip.

Some of the darling grandkids were
coming for dinner and I thought this
pretty pink dessert would appeal to them.

Kim had served hers up in adorable little
brandy snifter shaped dishes and that 
reminded me that I had bought a dozen
or more of these fun mini sized glass
sherbet dishes at Tai Pan a while back.
They were still wrapped up in my garage.

Pink Lemonade No Bake Cheesecakes

2 C. crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 T. sugar
1/4 C. melted butter

Pink Lemonade Cheesecakes

2 C. heavy whipping cream
1 C. powdered sugar
1/4 C. granulated sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
2 individual packets Crystal Light Pink Lemonade (4.5 g each)

12 small individual serving dishes or 6 larger ones

Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar and 
melted butter and spoon it into your dishes.

Whip the cream, and both sugars with a wire attachment
on your mixer until the cream is fluffy.

In another bowl, whisk or whip the softened cream cheese until
there are no lumps.  The cream cheese really has to be
softened for this recipe to work. Whisk in the Pink Lemonade
mix packets until combined.  Fold the cream cheese mix into
the whipped cream.

Fit a large piping bag with a 1M tip and fill the bag with
the cheesecake mixture.  Pipe it on top of the graham 
cracker crumbs.  Garnish with pink sugar crystals, or
as desired.  Place in refrigerator for at least an hour.  
These kept well over night so if you want to make them
for a party the next day, they would be great.

I changed her recipe a bit by doubling everything but
the cream cheese.  I didn't want the cheesecake flavor
to be too strong for the kids.  I also added a little more
sugar and butter to the crust.  It was perfect and three
generations were asking for seconds.

What a pretty, light and creamy summer dessert.
I am definitely serving this at another summer party
now that I have "found" my darling dessert dishes.

Thanks Kim for the amazing inspiration and recipe
for these adorable and easy mini 
Pink Lemonade Cheesecakes.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
