Lemon is such a versatile fruit and makes an excellent addition to both sweet and savory recipes. Its distinct taste instantly brightens up family meals. There are many essential lemon health benefits and medicinal properties our body could use from consuming lemons such as calcium, potassium, vitamin C, and fiber. Lemons are also known for boosting the immune system. It has been proven that drinking warm lemon water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning aids a healthy digestive system by flushing toxins from our system.
Always keep in mind to bring the ingredients including butter and dairy items to room temperature when aiming for a smooth, lump-free cheesecake. Ingredients that are at room temperature blend a lot better than the ones straight out of the fridge. For achieving optimum lemon flavor, always make lemon desserts recipes with the real lemon juice or better yet add lemon zest instead of the lemon extract. You won’t regret the extra work of squeezing the lemon juice or grating the zest. A good vegan option for gelatin is Agar Agar powder. Some exciting additions you could make in this lemon recipe are mixing lemon curd with cream cheese to make the filling. You can also add toppings to the cheesecake with fresh fruits like chopped raspberries, peaches, kiwis or strawberries. You could also sprinkle shavings of white chocolate or add a layer of marshmallow fluff. If you do not prefer shortbread crust, go ahead and use Graham cracker crust or even Golden Oreo cookies. If you are gluten-intolerant, just stick to a store-bought gluten-free crust or make your own at home with gluten-free flour. Other options to try for the crust are ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits,' lady fingers, or any cookie that has a little cinnamon in it. There are so many ways to make this recipe interesting. Just follow what your palate loves the most.
