Granadilla Sorbet Cheesecake

So, this recipe came together by chance.  Part luck, part error, part panic, part creativity.

I was hosting a dinner party and my no bake cheesecake refused to set due to the fact I had tried to be healthy and used low fat cream instead of full fat.

I placed it in the freezer to help it along its way and forgot about it for 2 hours.

The verdict?  Ooh la la! Refreshing, zesty, creamy and perfect on a Summer’s evening.

It’s what I’d imagine a combination of a sorbet and cheesecake would result in.
