Healthy Cheesecake + my favorite shops in New York

July 7, 2019

 


I used to make this “Healthy” Cheesecake very often when I was in 20's.  I called it healthy because I use yogurt instead of heavy whipping cream.  I stopped baking it after I moved to NY because I was trying cheesecake from different places in NY - I didn't have to bake it ;)  Please check my favorite shops at the end of this blog.  After enjoying the cheesecakes I missed my light cheesecake. I made it again!  

 

Preparation:

Grease the 9-inch baking pan. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

 

Ingredients:

<Crust>

12 Honey graham crackers

4 Tbsp melted unsalted butter

A pinch of salt

 

<Cheese filling>

1 lb organic cream cheese (I used Organic Valley)

1 cup whole fat yogurt (I used Organic Valley)

3/4 cup cane sugar

3 organic eggs

1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tsp finely grated lemon zest

1/4 tsp salt. 

 

Instructions:

1. Prepare crust. Pulse 12 graham crackers in a good processor (or crash them in a zipped bag with a rolling pin until fine crumbs).

2. Add 4 Tbsp melted unsalted butter and a pinch of salt. Press crumb mixture into bottom of pan.

3. Prepare cheese filling. In a large bowl, mix 1 lb cream cheese and 1 cup whole fat yogurt. Gradually add 3/4 cup cane sugar and 3 eggs and beat until fluffy.

4. Add 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 tsp finely grated lemon zest, and 1/4 tsp salt.

5. Pour in filling into the pan and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes.
