No Guilt Cheesecake Recipe
Vanilla cheesecake, creamy and good, but made with yogurt instead of cream cheese. Wonderful served with fruit.
This recipe provides the base, so that people like me can tweak a bit to adjust to my flavor. 1) I used Oikos Greek fat free yogurt, and I drained for 24 hours. I guess because of it's rich texture, I really thought this was cream cheese! 2) I mixed in little bit of fat free cream cheese. So it was 7/10 yogurt 3/10 cream cheese. 3) I used oreo waffles, since that's what I had in my hand, and of course, without the cream filling it's only 30 calories for 2 waffles. Yay!! 4) I used sweetner in replace of sugar to reduce some more calories. Then I had some left over macademia brittle, so I grinded some to blend it in to the yogurt mixture. Ok, right now, it's in the cooling stage, but can't wait to eat them! I've tried, but it's nice and firm!! Nothing like eggy with greek yogurts!! Thank you for the recipe!!! I will make again and again!!
I was expecting this to turn out slightly dry and crumbly, as another reviewer mentioned, but in fact it almost seemed like it wasn't dry enough, perhaps because I used full-fat yogurt. It was so light and creamy that my husband said it was more like whipped cream than cheesecake. I made another cheesecake using fat-free cream cheese at the same time to compare the two and I preferred that one, because its taste and texture were closer to that of regular cheesecake, and it had less calories, too. But I will try this again using fat-free yogurt and see how it turns out.
Definitely the BEST lowfat cheesecake I've ever tried! I stirred a little cocoa into a third of the batter and made a marbled cheesecake. I will use this recipe as my lowfat base. A tip: I needed to strain the yogurt longer than 24 hours. Thank you, Charlotte!!!
Baked inside a homemade graham cracker crust and glazed with blackberry jam, this cheesecake is the dessert version of a childhood favorite.
This flavorful dip is great for homemade jo-jo potatoes, raw vegetables, chips, and even baked potatoes!
Chocolate-y goodness in a cheesecake is what you get from this recipe using cocoa and chocolate chips with the cream cheese standard.
Zwieback toast crumbs form the crust, while cream cheese, Colby cheese, and vanilla yogurt comprise the filling in this unusual sweet yet slightly savory cheesecake. It's delightful served with fresh fruit.
This cheesecake is creamier than most cheesecakes, and very easy to make. Use grated lemon zest or 1 teaspoon lemon extract for flavoring.
