Been making gelatine based no-bake cheesecake for years. Knox has an excellent recipe. I have mixed it up using various types of soft cheeses like goat cheese with good success. Can sweeten with a variety of sweeteners and concentrated fruit juice as well. Just remember to keep the ratios right so that gelatin can firm up the liquid/cheese ingredients. I like to make without crust for a lower carb or pudding version. Very nice version with lime juice for a key lime pie effect.
