Cheesecake? A Cake…made of cheese?

Image“Would you like to see the sweet menu?” “Oh no thank you, I’m full.” No your not, you lying little parsnip!

Life is too short not to indulge responsibly; remember all those men and women on the Titanic that waved off the dessert tray.

 

Goodness you know me so well, of course I am not trying to tempt you with a full fat cheesecake. Lets not be silly about this! I am offering you the chance to make and eat a cheesecake – guilt free! And no, it doesn’t taste “healthy”, it tastes as cheeky as cheesecake is meant to. 

You will need:

85g low-fat biscuits (I use oat biscuits as they give a lovely rough base)
200g tub extra-light soft cheese
200g tub 0% fat Greek yoghurt
4 tablespoons of caster sugar
3 drops vanilla extract
2 tablespoons good-quality strawberry/raspberry jam
100g strawberries/raspberries

  • Put the biscuits in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until you have chunky crumbs. Divide between 4 glasses, small bowls or one big bowl.
  • Mix the soft cheese, yoghurt, sugar and vanilla together until smooth. Spoon over the crumbs.
  • Stir the the jam in a bowl until loose, then gently add the strawberries.
  • Divide the strawberries between the cheesecakes and serve.

    Make it your own:

You really can add what ever you want to these to reflect your tastes. Slice bananas,lemon juice and a spoonful of caramel sauce will make a lovely Banoffee Cheescake for example….not quite as low fat though! 

So you want to know the numbers? These depend on the products you use .

263 kcalories, protein 12g, carbohydrate 43g, fat 6 g, saturated fat 3g, fibre 1g, sugar 31g, salt 0.93 g.

 

See I hate to say I told you so but well, I did! 

Enjoy ladies and gents.

Need Help – just ask.

Ciao!

  1. As my role as Official Taster i can confirm that this is the type of food you would hurt loved ones to get!!! A small tip from me is to resist the temptation to eat them right away and leave them in the fridge overnight. It helps everything set and solidify and adds to the taste.
