1.5 - 2 cups Almond meal or almond flour
150 g. Butter (melted)
Juice and rind of 5 medium sized Lemons
2 cups cream
1 cup natural Greek yoghurt (full fat, unsweetened)
2 tsp Natvia (or sweetener of choice)
2 tbsp. Gelatine powder
¼ cup boiling water

While I would love this dessert, Himself does not like cheesecake. Hmmm, wonder if it would freeze ok so I would have more for me.

Happy Valentine's Day. I'm making dinner for two tonight since my parents are arriving tomorrow. Tonight will be chocolate mousse, and I've been wondering what to make for tomorrow. Lemon cheesecake sounds like just the thing. Thanks for the inspiration!
