{Recipe} Greek Yoghurt Cheesecake!

7:00 am


Everyone loves Cheesecake, right? and if you're anything like me and have been *trying* to make healthier food choices, you'll love this healthy version of the dessert. It sets just like a regular cheesecake and is just as sweet but I love the extra kick that the bitterness of the yoghurt gives this recipe. So try it for yourself and let me know what toppings you chose!

Ingredients:
2        Cups Biscuit Crumbs (If making your own, try graham crackers or digestive biscuits)
125g  Melted Butter 
(OR    A store bought pie crust - cheating!!)
2        Cups Natural Greek Yoghurt
1/2     Cup Sugar
2        Eggs
2        Tspn Vanilla Essence
1        Tbsp Cornflour


Steps:

  • To start, preheat your oven to 180c or 350f
  • So if, like me, you tend to make your own biscuit crumb base rather than using a store bought pie crust, you'll need to crush your biscuits. I do this by laying out a sheet of non-stick baking paper, folding this in half and placing in 3-5 biscuits at a time. Lay over the other side of the paper and gently crush and roll with a rolling pin or glass. Too measure how many more you may need to crush, use the fold in the paper to act like a pouring lip into your measuring cup
  • To the crumbs, add in your melted butter and mix through well
  • Grab your baking dish and lightly grease both the bottom and sides before pressing in your biscuit crumb to form your cheesecake base
  • Place the dish into the freezer while you prefer the filling
  • Into a large mixing bowl, add in your sugar, greek yoghurt, eggs and vanilla
  • Mix through well
  • Once combined, add in the cornflour which will act as a thickener and mix well
  • Pour this mix into your chilled base and place into your pre-heated oven for 35 minutes
  • After 35 minutes, take the cheesecake out to cool and once cool, chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving. Don't worry if the middle doesn't look quite set, this will harden at the cheesecake cools down
  • Then, it just the addition of any favourite toppings and you're complete! A healthy dessert option thats great fun to share, or not share ;)
