Purists won't want to call this a recipe for "cheesecake" since it doesn't contain any cream cheese at all. Instead, the main ingredient is healthy Greek yogurt, which is higher in protein and significantly lower in calories and fat. A slice of Junior's classic cheesecake is about 540 calories and 37 grams of fat, for instance. Our version is less than half the calories and contains only 10 grams of fat per serving.
It's also super easy to whip up. You don't need to mess with a water bath in the oven, and if you have a food processor, you can make both the crust and the filling in less than 20 minutes total (you can also use a blender and hand mixer).
Best of all, it tastes exactly like regular cheesecake–just a light, elegant, and zesty version that won't leave you in a food coma or with a tummy ache after dessert.Read More »from Lemony Greek Yogurt Cheesecake
