Healthy Cheesecake Two Ways

Way 1: Using Pre-made Crusts

Way 2: Dairy, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free


Nothing says summer like fresh berries. Local fields are overflowing with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and more....

So, the next time you’re looking to whip up a dessert, try out these mini cheesecakes. I promise, they’ll be your new go-to for any summer night, cookout or gathering.





In the spirit of both health and convenience, I am sharing two ways to make these delicious treats. The first is with a pre-made graham cracker crust and uses regular yogurt and cream cheese. The second is 100% homemade, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free. Both are equally delicious! Note that a blender is needed for this

recipe.

Below I also shared a few recommendations for which brands/supplies to look out for when making these (a great dairy fee yogurt, pre-made crust, and more!). A few are listed here and a full list is linked.

Recipe Number One:

Healthy Mini Cheesecakes Using Pre-made Crusts



Ingredients:

  • Mini graham cracker crusts - Keebler makes a great one.

  • Berry topping:

  • You'll need a handful of blueberries and 1 TBS chia seeds

  • For filling:

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 TBS flax meal (optional)

  • 1/2 TBS almond flour

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • In a blender, blend yogurt, cream cheese and sugar. Once blended, add the egg whites, then stir in vanilla extract, flour and optional flax meal.

  • Pour mixture into crusts and bake for 45 minutes or until tops are starting to brown.

  • The tops will sink a bit.

  • Top with the berry compote.

  • Bake 20 minutes. Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

  • While crusts are baking, make the filling.

  • First, using a blender, blend the yogurt and cream cheese. Then, add in vanilla extract, coconut sugar. Then, blend in egg whites. Finally, stir in the almond flour and optional flax meal.

  • Evenly distribute the filling into each muffin cup on top of the cooked crust. The filling should reach just the top of the muffin cup.

  • Bake for 40-50 minutes or until tops are browned. They will sink a bit once removed from heat.
