What Ingredients do I use to make this Cheesecake?

Non Fat Greek Yogurt:

The non fat Greek yogurt is the main ingredient for this cheesecake. It is used as a cream cheese substitute that is usually found in a classic cheesecake recipe. I recommend using a thick non fat Greek yogurt-Fage or Chobani are both great brands. They are super thick-which is exactly what you want. The thicker the yogurt, the better the texture will be for this cheesecakes. The one thing to keep in mind is that all yogurt contains whey.

Have you have ever opened a container of yogurt and have notice a thin layer of clear liquid is sitting on top?  That liquid is known as whey. Whey is rich in milk-protein and can also contain some of the milk’s nutrients, including calcium and vitamin D. Since yogurt tends to carry a lot of whey, you may notice the whey sitting on top of the cheesecake after it has chilled in the fridge for 12 hours. Let me reassure you..this is normal..and that “whey” or liquid will eventually evaporate after a few days. You can place a sheet of parchment paper over the top of the cheesecake which will help absorb some of the whey. 

Sugar Free Pudding:

The sugar free pudding is used as a thickening agent and gives these low point cheesecake flavor.  When the pudding is combined with the non fat Greek yogurt and eggs it makes the texture nice and thick.

Eggs:

These low point cheesecakes rely on eggs for their thickening power. Thickening will occur when raw egg proteins unwind and link together, which is what happens when eggs cook. If you are watching your cholesterol, you may substrate the whole egg for egg whites, but you’ll need to use 6 egg whites instead of 3 whole eggs. If you are following the WW GREEN plan you may substitute the 3 eggs for 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute which lowers the point value per serving.

Sweetener:

For this cheesecake I use Lakanto Monkfuit Sweetener to sweeten the cheesecake. This is my recommended sugar substitute. Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have.

What could I use for a low point crust?

Want to add a crust to this cheesecake? May I suggest using my Lightened Up Graham Cracker Crust is perfect. It’s only 4 Freestyle Smart Point per serving and adds a delicious graham cracker taste to the cheesecake.

You can find the recipe here.

What do I use to bake my cheesecake in?:

 I use this 9-inch Springform pan.  A 9-inch pie dish would work as well.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs or 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute 
  • 3 cups plain fat free Greek yogurt ( I recommend Fage or Chobani)
  • 1  (1 oz.) small box Jell-o instant sugar free/fat free banana cream or vanilla flavor pudding mix
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large banana, mashed
  • 3 Tbsp zero point white granulated sugar substitute  ( I prefer Lakanto) I recommend a granulated sugar substitute, if the sugar substitute is not granulated it tends to give a gritty texture to the cheesecake.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In mixing bowl add eggs, vanilla extract, mashed banana, sugar substitute and mix well with a wire whisk.
  3. 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.)
  4. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. It may look jiggly but once it’s chilled, it will set. Let it cool for about 15-20 minutes before covering it with plastic wrap and let it chill overnight in the refrigerator.
  6. It’s recommended to chill overnight before eating. It can take up to 12 hours for the texture and flavor to completely set in.
  7. The longer it chills the better it tastes.

Tips:

  1. I recommend using a thick non fat Greek yogurt such as: Chobani or Fage. There is a big difference in how the cheesecake sets when you use a thicker yogurt.
  2. You can substitute regular instant pudding mix for the sugar free pudding mix. That substitution would increase the point value by 2 SmartPoints per serving.
  3. If you make 8 slices each slice is technically 1/2 Smartpoint on the BLUE and PURPLE plan. The WW app will at times round it up to 1 SmartPoint and other times the app will round it down to Zero Smartpoint. You can chose to track the points how you see fit.

    Hi Beth,

    To enter the recipes into the ww app, you can either add them as a quick add with the name and points or you’ll need to create a recipe and add each ingredient and serving amount. Both ways will be saved into your personal app for future use. Unfortunately, the ww app doesn’t make the recipes you create public.

    Hope that helps,

    Is it 0 pts. or 1 pt. Per slice

    Lindsay Kehl

    It depends how many slices you make. If you slice it into 4 slices it’s 1 point and if you slice it into 8 -each slice would be 1/2 point or 0sp.
