No-Bake Lychee Cheesecake 免烤荔枝奶酪蛋糕 - Pureed Lychee gives this cheesecake a light and soft texture with subtle tropical fruit flavour and it goes brilliantly with the buttery digestive biscuit base. This perfectly lite sweet melt-in-mouth creamy cheesecake is wonderfully delicious and sensational!
I have been wanting to do this for the longest time and I'm happy that I finally made it for this special occasion - my husband's birthday.
He is the guy who never appreciate fancy decorated cakes, so what I did was as simple as possible. Just placed some leftover lychees and lustred gooseberries on top and that's all for a simple yet elegant Lychee Cheesecake.
The taste was absolutely good, both the husband and son loves it and gave 2 thumbs up! :)
