Would you believe me if I told you I made a cheesecake without using any cream cheese?! Sounds crazy, right?
Well, you better believe it!
I don’t know about you, but after I eat regular cheesecake, I feel like there is a brick sitting in the bottom of my stomach. I really don’t like that heavy feeling in my belly after I eat. But I do like cheesecake, so I wanted to make something light, but still tastes delicious.
I was skeptical at first. I mean, a cheesecake without cream cheese…really? What would that taste like?!
Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised! It was light and super tasty…it tasted like real cheesecake without the “brick” feeling afterwards 😉
I’m guessing you are wondering what I used instead of cream cheese! Are you ready??!
I used cottage cheese and Greek yogurt! How simple is that!?
Super healthy and full of protein, cottage cheese combined with Greek yogurt give the perfect flavour and texture to this delicious “Skinny” cheesecake.
You don’t have to use cherries, you could use blueberries or another favourite fruit of yours. Since cherries aren’t in season here, I bought some cherry pie filling, but fresh fruit will work just fine too!
So the next time you want a light and delicious dessert that is simple to make and won’t leave you feeling like you just ate a brick, try this Skinny Cherry Cheesecake.
