These no bake mini lemon cheesecake cups would be perfect for any occasion with a light, creamy filling and can personalized for any occasion with some fun add-ons. So quick and easy to make too!
What would life be without desserts? Pretty boring right? It's totally okay to have some sweetness in your life and these individual lemon cheesecakes cups are the perfect indulgence. Super light, creamy, a bit of lemony tang and when topped with confetti sprinkles, it's a mini party just waiting to happen.
These cups are good any time but today they are made festive for spring and Easter with some pre-made bunny decorations. So hop to it and put this recipe on you to do list!
I'm pretty sure I was born with a lemon gene. It's my DNA to create recipes with my favorite citrus as it never fails to bring a smile to my taste buds - it's like having a best food friend! So how do I enjoy lemons, well let me count the ways. Recently I made these Lemon Pull Apart Rolls that were little soft pillows with lots of lemon zest and a lemon glaze. On the savory side we have enjoyed this Lemon Chicken Orzo soup and Risotto. Even more recipes can be found by searching on lemons in the search bar.
As I mentioned this dessert can be made for any time and it is fun to add some decorations to personalize them for any occasion. Right now I'm in Easter mode so I found these cute bunnies and of course just adding sprinkles to anything is always fun. I also thought toasted coconut could be used or some finely chopped nuts. Let your imagination go wild and add a little sunshine to your day!

- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon lemon jello powder
