Sweetened condensed milk Cheesecake recipe no Bake
I don’t know about you, but when the temperatures start climbing into the high 90’s your first thought is not “let’s crank up the oven!” No, it’s really the last thought, right? But, if you’re craving something a little sweet yet refreshing, and don’t want to turn on that oven, here is one of our ALL time favorite, and most requested at family gatherings, dessert recipe: Easy No Bake Key Lime Pie!!!
When my husband and I made our very first trip to Florida in 1982, we were introduced to Key Lime Pie. Say what now? We had never heard of it and had never tasted anything like this lusciousness before. We made it a point to try just about every key lime pie/cake/cheesecake on our trip. Alas, when asked how to make it, most, if not all, had lots of eggs. Lots and lots of eggs; some with as many as eight eggs!! Yikes! Now don’t get me wrong. I love eggs. I do. But my hubby has a little high cholesterol, so I was on the hunt for something easy and with little to no eggs. My hunt ended abruptly once I returned up north, since we do not have key limes up here and this was at a time when no one had even heard of Google. Gasp!
The next year when we returned to Florida (which we have done now for the last 25 years), I was on a mission to find a no-egg key lime pie recipe. In a little, tiny bookstore, I found a little local cookbook, and lo and behold a no-egg, no-bake, key lime pie recipe. Sold! I couldn’t WAIT to try this! Like right there and then! We stopped at the local island grocery store and when I got back to our condo I promptly made this pie. It takes less than 10 minutes to make it, but it must be refrigerated for at least 3-4 hours. The suspense was killing us! So we went to the beach :)
After returning from the beach and waiting the appropriate time, we sliced into this delectable key lime pie. It was unanimous. Best. Pie. Ever. It’s even been called “heaven on a plate” by raving fans. Yes, it’s that good, that simple. Did I say it was good? It’s cool, refreshing, simple, easy, delicious, stupendous, yummy, note-worthy, Sunday meet-the-parents, bring-home-the-boss dessert.
Go on. You know you want to try it. This pie will easily become your go-to, most requested, summertime favorite. I promise.
You can come back and thank me later. :)

What can I substitute for condensed milk in a no-bake cheesecake recipe?!?!?!? | Yahoo Answers
If you have a can of evaporated milk on hand, you can make a very good approximation of condensed milk. In a saucepan, combine a cup of evaporated milk with 1-1/4 cups of sugar. Heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool. You can refrigerate the mixture for several days.
