Lime Cheesecake with Fruity Pebbles Crust

Put a fruity spin on the classic cheesecake with a honey-lime filling and a sugary sweet cereal crust. Top it all off with some whipped cream and extra cereal for garnish. Recipe courtesy of Post.

Ingredients

For the Fruity Pebbles crust:

  • 2 ½ Cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup butter, melted

For the honey-lime filling:

  • 1 8-ounce block cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 6-ounce container plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ Cup honey
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • ½ Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup thawed whipped topping, for garnish
  • ¼ Cup Fruity Pebbles cereal, for garnish
  • Lime twist, for garnish

Directions

For the Fruity Pebbles crust:

In a food processor, grind cereal into a fine powder.  Combine ground cereal, sugar, and salt in medium sized bowl.  Stir in the melted butter until thoroughly blended.

Pack mixture firmly into a 9-inch pie pan and press firmly to bottom and sides, bringing crumbs evenly up to the rim.

Chill 1 hour before filling.

For the honey-lime filling:

With an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, yogurt, honey, lime zest, and vanilla until well combined and fluffy, 5 minutes. Spoon into the prepared pie crust and smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

When ready to serve, top each slice with a dollop of thawed whipped topping, a sprinkling of cereal, and a twist of lime.
