Yoghurt cheesecake slice


It is Christmas time and in my family that means cheesecake! My Grandma was famous for her cheesecake and it would be a must on the Christmas table. 

While not a traditional Christmas dish, every time I eat cheesecake it reminds me of Christmas, family and especially my Grandma. Now that my Grandma is in a nursing home with Alzheimer's I want to make sure this Christmas tradition continues so here is my take of an easy, creamy and smooth no-bake cheesecake slice.

Yoghurt cheesecake


Ingredients:
  • 1 pack coffee biscuits
  • 75-80g melted butter
  • 250g cream cheese (Philadelphia cream cheese is best)
  • 210g sweet condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoon lemon and lime curd
Method:
  • Crush the biscuits in a food processor until it reaches breadcrumb consistently and mix with melted butter
  • Line a 20cm x 15cm slice pan with greaseproof paper and spray with oil
  • Press the biscuits into the base of the pan and place in the refrigerator to become firm
  • Using an electric beater, whisk the cream cheese and in batches, add the sweet condensed milk and yoghurt until smooth and fluffy
  • Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top
  • Dollop the lemon and lime curd across the top of the cheesecake (if it is too thick add a little hot water to thin it out) 
  • Refrigerate overnight. 
This is a lot lighter than your traditional cheesecake and the tartness of the lemon and lime curd will help balance its sweetness. You can use lemon curd if easier.

I hope you can enjoy this around a table filled with your loved ones, just like I will be doing on Christmas day.
