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.
- 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
- 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.
