No-bake lemon and raspberry cheesecake

Pretty as a picture! This amazing no-bake cheesecake is a winner every time thanks to the light and creamy cheesecake filling, fresh raspberries bursting with flavour and the perfect amount of lemon to bring a little bit of zing. The biscuit base has great texture thanks to the soft digestives meaning you won’t get stuck trying to force your fork through it! Decorate the top of the cheesecake with extra raspberries if you like, or leave plain and dust with a little icing sugar for a final flourish. Enjoy!
