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
- 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!
