Time for a Healthier Greek Yogurt Cheesecake! We’re changing a few ingredients to lighten up this classic dessert and I know the cheesecake lovers out there will really enjoy this one. A standard graham cracker crust and creamy cheesecake filling, top it with a berry compote for something extra special. Gluten-free friendly.
I used Tillamook 0% plain Greek yogurt, which isn’t nearly as tart as other 0% fat yogurts. If possible, use 2% of full-fat.
I opted to cut the sugar down to ⅔ cup for this recipe. If using a tart 0% yogurt, you may want to use ¾ cup sugar. If you decide to use vanilla yogurt, you could ust ⅔ cup sugar or even ½ cup sugar.
Room temperature ingredients are not optional, everything must be the same temperature (eggs, Greek yogurt and cream cheese) to ensure a smooth cheesecake batter.
Cheesecake can be prepped a day in advance. Keep chilled just before serving.
Nutrition approximate; calculated with 2% yogurt and full-fat cream cheese.
