Lemon Kefir Cheesecake

Lemon Kefir Cheese Cake Loula Natural1

My husband is not a massive Kefir cheese fan. He finds it too sharp in flavour. When he asked to make a cheese cake he wasn’t too happy when I asked him to use the kefir cheese so that the kids and I would be able to digest it better! However it works really well with the lemon here. As a compromise we mixed it with some ricotta- this also gave a more creamy texture for the cheesecake.

It was really delicious (even my husband thought so) and was even better the next day so you can make this a day ahead and it will freeze well too.
