If you're looking for a lighter dessert option, that's full of goodness too, then these Healthy Cheesecake Pots fit the bill. The base is made from oats and nuts, which offer healthy fats and fibre. The cheesecake filling is made from a low fat cream cheese mixed with a low fat yoghurt, and added maple syrup, lemon and vanilla for flavour and sweetness. No bake cheesecake needs fat to set and become firm to hold it's shape, so I've served this low fat cheesecake in an individual serving glass as it is slightly looser. A few berries on top and they look rather pretty!
How to make Healthy Cheesecake Pots
In a bowl, mix together the oats, chopped pecans, coconut sugar and melted coconut oil. Press it into the bottom of the serving glasses and chill it for 15 minutes in the fridge.
Using an electric mixer, whisk up all of the filling ingredients until smooth. Divide the cheesecake mixture between the glasses and add some berries on top.
Tips for making the Healthy Cheesecake Pots:
- You can eat them straight away, but they go firmer and are a nicer consistency after a few hours chilling in the fridge, or overnight.
- If you prefer, you can make the base from crushed biscuits. This will change the fat and sugar content of course. Use 100g crushed biscuits mixed with 40g melted butter (or baking spread, or coconut oil).
- This recipe would also work split between 6 smaller serving glasses for a more modest portion.
- I created these to be a healthy dessert option, but they're also really great for breakfast!
