Key Lime Cheesecake

     With the gentle breeze of rising temperatures, nothing celebrates the change of Seasons quite like Key Lime!  In fact, anything Key Lime is cause to kick up your heels...shakes, cookie bars and CHEESECAKE are among my favorite!  This no bake Key Lime Cheesecake is no exception, and for a 1/6 piece it is only 235 calories, 9g net carbs and 12g protein.  Keep the oven off and the kitchen cool with this warm weather favorite.  :)

Ingredients for 6 large pieces~
1 Quest Cinnamon Roll Protein Bar
8oz reduced fat Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Key Lime Juice, or juice of two Lime's
1/2 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
6oz Kroger Key Lime Carbmasters Yogurt
3/4 cup 30 cal/cup Almond Milk
1oz box Sugar Free Cheesecake Jello Pudding
1 scoop Vanilla Casein Protein Powder

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol

     Unwrap Protein Bar and microwave for 15 seconds, flatten softened bar and place on Silpat lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 5 minutes, remove, cool, break into pieces and place in Magic Bullet and grind to powder, set aside.  Add the rest of first set of ingredients to bowl and beat til smoothly incorporated, set aside in fridge to chill.  Add Protein Bar powder to bowl with melted Coconut Oil and Erythritol from second set of ingredients, press into bottom of 8" Pam sprayed cake pan, pour Cheesecake on top and chill over night in fridge, or set in freezer for a firmer texture if desired.  Garnish with grated Lime Rind and extra Lime Wedges if desired.  Enjoy  :)
