Plain Jane Cheesecake

IMG_E5784
Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups nonfat plain greek yogurt or nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 small box instant sugar free/fat free cheesecake or vanilla pudding.
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar substitute ( I used stevia)

 

Directions:

In mixing bowl add eggs, vanilla, sugar substitute and beat well. Add yogurt and dry pudding, mix well. Pour into a lightly greased with non stick cooking spray pie dish or springform pan. I used a 9 inch springform pan.

Bake 350 for 30 min. It may look jiggly but once it’s chilled, it will set. Let it cool for about 15-20 min before covering it with plastic wrap and let it chill overnight in the refrigerator.

💥it’s recommended to chill overnight before eating. It can take up to 12 hours for the texture and flavor to completely set in. The longer it chills the better it tastes.

Servings: 8 Slices for 1 Freestyle SmartPoints®  each

 

Notes:

You can substitute regular instant pudding mix for the sugar free pudding mix. The servings for that is: 10 servings /  2 points per serving.

    1. If you substituted the recipe for the low fat yogurt it would be 2 Freestyle smartpoints for 1/10th of the cheesecake.

      Or 3 Freestyle smart points for 1/8th of the cheesecake

      Depending on how big of slices you would do.

      Thanks so much

  1. A Tablespoon of vanilla seems like a lot. Is pure vanilla different than extract?
    I would normally use about 1 teaspoon in cheesecake. Thank you.

    1. It really does help off set the bitterness of the Greek yogurt. You definitely can adjust to your liking. I think if it’s pure vanilla extract you could reduce it..but I like it with 1 tbsp of pure vanilla.
      Thank you.

  2. Thank you for the recipe, I made it last night and just got my first taste! I was pretty impressed with the texture of this recipe. It’s still a little bitter from the Greek yogurt, but for 1 point it was a satisfying snack! I used a liberal amount of fat feee Reddi Whip…so that helped! Next time I will also add some berries to the top to help sweeten the overall taste. I may also play with sweetener options, I just used what I had, an off brand Splenda. Other sweeteners may taste better:) Thanks again!
