Lately I’ve been on a bit of a health kick. Drinking smoothies, counting the calories and trying to exercise (sort of).So I decided to try a healthy bake for a change, the two don’t tend to go hand in hand. I did this by adapting a baked cheesecake recipe I found online and substituted the main ingredients for low-fat alternatives.
It worked as well as I expected for someone such as me with a very sweet tooth my palette just isn’t use to it. I decided to add some clear runny honey when serving to satisfy my craving for sugar while stil trying to be healthy/natural as possible.
4 oz low fat digestive biscuits
2 oz butter,melted
8 oz low fat soft cheese
4 oz Caster sugar
2 oz natural yoghurt
2 medium eggs
Grated Zest of 1 lemon & juice of half I mistakenly put the juice of a full 1 in and got a extra zing!
1 oz plain flour but you can use self raising like moi
4 oz mixed berries fresh or frozen
Icing sugar to decorate
Honey to serve optional
1. Pre-heat oven 120 degrees Celsius or 100 degrees fan (I accidently did 120 fan) grease a round loose bottomed cake tin you could also line it with greaseproof paper( I didnt). Crush the digestives in a food processor, in a bag using a rolling pin or I like to mash them in a bowl.
Top tip! Don’t forget about the cheesecake in the oven once turning the heat off and leaving for an hour like I did.
