There’s nothing quite like the flavors of Summertime – lemon, orange, lime. But during the heat of the Summer, no one wants to heat up the kitchen to make dessert. These Key Lime Cheesecake Trifles go together in minutes, are no bake, and have a delicious lime flavor. What better way to celebrate National Cheesecake Day?

Serving an impressive looking dessert that takes minutes to make is exactly what I love. And when it comes to serving guests or creating a delicious dessert for my family, I love to serve in individual containers.

This recipe for Key Lime Cheesecake Trifles has very simple ingredients, starting with a similar recipe that I have shared several times before, Cotton Candy No Bake Cheesecakes, Lemon Berry Cheesecakes, Cheesecake Trifles, Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Trifles, and Cheesecake Trifles: Dessert in a Jar. As you can see, with just one recipe, you can make several different variations.

As I’ve mentioned, Trifle Desserts are so easy yet impressive. They can be served in a large clear glass bowl, or small individual servings. These footed containers are plastic and the perfect size for these luscious Key Lime Cheesecake Trifles.

After whipping together the Cream Cheese, Cool Whip Whipped Topping, Sugar and Lime Juice, it gets layered with a Graham Cracker and Butter mixture. A couple of layers in the containers, and a small piece of lime for garnish.
