Key Lime Greek Yogurt Cheesecake

If you are craving a light and refreshing, no bake dessert, this is for you! Key Lime Greek Yogurt Cheesecake is so creamy and dreamy you won’t even notice its skinny! 

Simple and pretty no bake Greek yogurt cheesecake!  Little Dairy on the PrairieLet me tell you I’ve got Vanilla Wafers on my mind. I wanted to make a no bake dessert really bad because it has been in the 90’s here and I don’t have air conditioning. I kinda want to buy it. Not so much because I can’t take the heat. I want it because I can’t take the smell of the dairy on hot days. I’m tired of the dust too. All the semi trucks delivering feed to our dairy drive right behind my house on a dirt road. Really though, it’s the smell of all the hot cow poop right outside my window that I’m not lovin! Anyway, back to the Vanilla Wafers. I can’t bear to turn my oven on and I NEED a dessert. I had the perfect recipe in my head. In the pantry I went to grab my wafers and low and behold, they were GONE. I guess I could have used the crumbs. The big boss always leaves the empty box in the pantry. I guess he doesn’t believe in garbage cans. Anyway, I had to create a different recipe using graham crackers instead. Maybe it was a blessing because Key Lime Greek Yogurt Cheesecakes are good!

Better Graham Cracker Crust!

I buy boxes of graham crackers by the cart full this time of the year. I do NOT want to have a craving for s’mores and be stuck without graham crackers. Anyway, I whipped up this graham cracker crust and then nuked it for a few seconds so it would stick together a little better.

You know I am in love with Greek yogurt so it seemed likely to add it to my cheesecake. I used Chobani. Yum!

Key Lime Cheesecake Cups, with Greek Yogurt!

After I finished making these, I couldn’t stop licking the beaters and the bowl. The Big Boss came in so I had to share one beater with him. I was nice even though he ate all my vanilla wafers.

You know I love cute food and these are the cutest! Of course it would have been faster to put them in store bought graham cracker crust. And I won’t judge you if you do. If I had one in my pantry I might have used it too. But these are cute!
