Margarita Cheesecake That Your Guests Will Be Begging You To Make Again

This cheesecake is non-alcoholic, but can easily take a little splash of tequila for some fun if your heart desires! The best part of this is topping it all off with some sparkling sugar and lime slices for a nod to the margarita.

Spoon in the Cool Whip and lime zest and beat to combine. Continue beating for about 2-3 minutes or until mixture is thick and fluffy. Mixture will continue to thicken as you whip it.
