This Instant Pot Key Lime Cheesecake is sweet, tangy, and packed with flavor! Let your Instant Pot do all the work and serve this cheesecake for any occasion!
As I mentioned in previous posts, last week was my 34th birthday! To celebrate the day, my hubby and I took the kids hiking, swimming, and of course…shopping! It was a family filled day, just what I wanted for my birthday!
For breakfast, my hubby made us all an INCREDIBLE Banana Coffee Cake! It was a huge hit and if it wasn’t for the fact I was going to have this cheesecake for dessert later, I would have had a second piece that morning, haha!
After a full day of activity, we enjoyed take out from my favorite Mexican restaurant up the street! Nothing says happy birthday like enchilada verdes, am I right?!
A tradition in our family is the birthday person gets to pick whatever they want for dessert! My son always chooses cobblers and fruit dishes, my hubby is banana pudding, and my daughter and I stick with chocolate!
This year, I decided to change it up and request a Key Lime Cheesecake! I have been growing key limes in a pot and actually had several to use up!
My hubby took the request and set out to work, adding an Instant Pot twist!
Between he and my daughter, they had this ready to go in less than ten minutes! Of course, the Instant Pot had to work its magic too, but the “prep” time was quick and easy!
Once finished and cooled, they decorated this with homemade whipped cream and that made this even tastier!!
If you’re looking for an incredible sweet treat, I highly recommend this Instant Pot Key Lime Cheesecake!
Special shout out to my hubby for knocking my request out of the park!
