The tangy lemon berry flavors are a perfect balance to the sweet cheesecake thanks to Kraft Country Time Lemonade Starters.

Can we talk about the weather for a minute? Like why it snowed five inches the first day of spring and why snow flurries happen every few days at the end of March?

We did have one sunny, seventy degree afternoon, but it ended in a cold rain storm and snow flurries the next day. Pure torture.

So while we wait for real spring weather we’ve been dreaming of to arrive, we’re making it a reality inside.

I’m unpacking our summer flip-flops, drinking lemonade and eating fruity, spring desserts!

Kraft Country Time Lemonade has always been a standard in my family, and now with the Starters, it’s even easier to make in a pitcher or a glass, just by adding water.

Country Time has that refreshing lemon flavor we all crave from real lemon juice. You can find the Starters at your local Walmart in the section with the other drink mixes.

You can also use it to flavor some delicious flavored desserts, like these Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars that come together in a snap. First, crush some graham crackers, mix the crumbs with a bit of sugar and melted butter, and press into a pan.

Then, in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and powder sugar.

Next, add some cream and Country Time Lemonade Starter. (The Berry Lemonade is like spring in a bottle!)

Now, the mixture will start out runny, but don’t give up. Keep beating it until it thickens.

It’s the magic of the heavy cream that will thicken it all up. I added a few drops of ready food coloring to give it a pretty pink color, but that’s optional.

Spread the cheesecake mixture on top of the graham cracker crust and let chill for at least 4 hours.

Slice into bars and garnish with raspberries and a lemon slice.

    I’m with you… I’m still waiting for spring to really arrive! I’m usually a straight lemonade girl, but this recipe looks delicious I must try using Country Time Lemonade Starters in a recipe! Thanks for sharing! #client

    Is there any substitutes for the starter berry lemonade? Our grocery store doesn’t sell it so I was wondering what else I could use or if I could use frozen concentrate? Thanks
