Gluten Free No Bake Lemon Strawberry Cheesecakes

I have been in the mood for anything lemony lately. Now that it is officially Spring, I think this is the perfect time for these tasty no bake lemon strawberry cheesecakes. I will warn you though, they are so good and light and fresh that I felt like I could eat an entire batch. Thankfully we were sharing them with friends and that wasn’t a possible option for me. Happy cheesecake eating!
