Who says you need to miss out on all the yummy food in life when your watching your weight or health for that matter! I love food so I’m sure not going to miss out on anything!
This is a low fat cheesecake made from the goodness of Greek yoghurt so it’s even great for your gut health and contains plenty of probiotics! The It contains only natural organic sweeteners such as honey and Stevia. So for those who may be diabetic, you can opt to double the sweetener and omit the honey.
The base is simple and high protein as it’s made from LSA, Linseed, Sunflower seeds and almonds. The base contains organic coconut oil so it is a saturated fat however it also contains good ‘HDL’ for heart health. As it contains both ‘good’ and ‘bad’, you still need to be careful as to not over consume saturated fats. The amount used in the recipe is minimal across the dishes.
This recipe makes 2 ramekin size servings depending on the size of your dish. You can double or triple the mixture if your wanting to make one large dish. Smaller servings take at least 3-4 hours to set in the freezer so if you make one large cheesecake, its best to make it the night or day before.
- 1/2 cup light/ no fat cream cheese
- 1/2 cup natural Greek yoghurt
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract (or essence)
- 1 tsp organic Stevia sweetener

Using a spoon spread evenly LSA mixture across the base of your dish or individual ramekins, whichever you are using.

You can drizzle honey, sprinkle lemon rind, add fruit, light whipped cream or make a gelatin fruit infused topping. Whatever tickles your fancy!
I made single serves and also one large serve at different times as this is a favourite hit in my household.
Off to make another! Hmmm maybe strawberry or chocolate this time???
