lime creamcheese cups

I had a few bricks of creamcheese to use up and although I used up half a pack on some broccoli soup, I still had a couple bricks to go. So I whipped up lime cheesecake cups. You can kick them up a notch and use a low carb crust in the bottom of the cups, sprinkle nuts on top, all up to you. I decided to treat it more as a light mousse-like dessert. 

Although they are mainly lime cheesecake cups, I did add a bit of lemon juice upon the hubby’s request for the addition of that flavour. These would make wonderful summertime desserts. Or anytime you wanted something a bit tart, a bit sweet, fluffy, and a great end to a meal.

Not the best shot, but will do as a filler until I take a better one. 😉
