100% All Natural Greek Yogurt
Yogurt is something that you either love or hate. I’m in the middle. I love the health benefits of yogurt but I’m not a fan of the taste.
Recently I was introduced to some Greek yogurt, called Fage. FAGE is pronounced as “fa-yeh.” It is a stronger tasting yogurt but you can buy it with sides of honey or other flavored fruits.
I did a little reading on this particular yogurt and learned that it is diabetic & gluten-free friendly, something that is requested more and more today. After reading the process and learning about the natural ingredients, which are indeed all natural, I think that this is perfect for those of you who prefer organic foods.
Enjoy this recipe from FAGE and be sure to check out their other recipes made with yogurt!
Angelic Lemon Cheesecake
- 3 reduced-fat digestive biscuits
- .35 oz low-fat spread
- 5 oz FAGE Total 0% Yogurt
- 1 tbsp good-quality lemon curd
- Thin slice of lemon and lemon zest to decorate
1. Place the digestives in a plastic sandwich bag and roll a rolling pin across them, or crush with fingers until they are small, even crumbs
2. Melt the low-fat spread in a pan and add to the biscuits. Mix well until all the biscuits are lightly coated.
3. Place a small metal ring on a serving plate. Pour the biscuit mixture into the metal ring and press it down firmly with fingertips.
4. Open the yogurt and add the lemon curd and a little lemon zest. Spoon this mixture on top of the biscuit base and chill for at least an hour.
5. Remove the metal ring and add a slice of lemon or lemon rind to serve.
If you don’t have metal cooking rings, use a clean, small baked-bean can with each end removed. In-season, soft fruit, such as strawberries, can be pureed and used in place of the lemon curd.
If you are in a hurry for the cheesecake to set, it can be frozen. Just lift it out of the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving to allow it to soften slightly.
