This summery cheesecake is wonderful if you are looking for a dessert to be prepared well in advance. The digestive biscuits, bound with a little bit of butter, give a light and crispy texture to the crust. The cheesecake mixture is flavoured with lemon juice and zest that lends its characteristic freshness to this dessert, while the sugar substitute provides the necessary sweetness.
