Honey Cheesecake Recipe [No-Bake Version]

Comes with Honey-Lemon Thyme Drizzle!

By Mary Ross

This is my take on a quick and easy Honey Cheesecake recipe (no-bake version) from my friend Carlos at

For ideas about putting your own spin on this recipe as I have done here ( substituting graham crackers for Amaretti cookies for example ) please read "Tips on How to Make the Best No Bake Honey Cheesecake" from the original recipe (link above).

This light, mousse-like texture cheesecake, naturally sweetened with raw wildflower honey and topped with a honey lemon -thyme drizzle is the ideal summer dessert!

2. In a bowl, mix the melted butter and chopped lemon thyme together. Combine well.

3. In 4 cocktail glasses or ramekins add the crust mixture (the amount of crust will depend on the size of your dish, but should be around 3-4 Tablespoons per glass). Press it down to form an even layer and refrigerate.

4. In a large bowl, add the cream cheese, Labneh cheese, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt. Mix well until the mixture is a smooth texture.

5. Divide cheesecake filling between the four cocktail glasses or ramekins and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

7. Remove from heat, let cool and drizzle over the cheesecake.
