I love this cheesecake. You could also use an orange or a lime or two, instead of the lemon to make this.
- 500 g natural yoghurt ASDA smartprice
- 300 g soft cheese ASDA smartprice
- 1 lemon
- 240 g sugar
- 5 eggs
- 300 g ginger nuts ASDA smartprice
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- Put the biscuits and oil in a food processor and mix together. Once the mixture comes together in a clump, take out of the processor and press it into the bottom of a cake tin. Chill this whilst you prepare the cheesecake.
- Chop up lemon into large chunks, removing seeds as necessary.
- Combine lemon chunks, yoghurt, soft cheese, sugar and eggs into a blender or food processor and blend until completely pulverised.
- Pour the filling mixture into the cheesecake base and cook for 1 hour, checking after 50 minutes.

- The top should be golden-coloured and completely set. Let the cheesecake cool at room temperature. Once the tin no longer feels warm, put into the fridge for several hours before serving, but ideally overnight.
