Banana & Berry Cheesecake
A no bake cheesecake? Yes please! Perfect for those who want to do something ultra simple, this is the treat for you. You can even replace the banana with other fruits or berries. It’s so versatile, you can make it into a big cake or create smaller individual portions (like in a cocktail glass) if you want to fancify.
NO-BAKE BANANA & BERRY CHEESECAKE – serves 12 (217 calories | 8g fat (1g sat fat)| 16g sugar each | 14g protein)
- 75g Fat-free biscuits
- 15g Butter
- 10g Fat-free Greek Yoghurt
For the filling
- 500g Quark
- 400g Light cream cheese
- 300g Fat-free Greek yoghurt
- 160g Demerara sugar
- 2 Madagascan vanilla pods
- 3 large ripe bananas, sliced and tossed in lemon juice
Set aside for the topping
- A few banana slices
- Your favourite berries
- A bit of demerara sugar
- A handful of the cheesecake base
STEP 1: Blend all of the base ingredients; biscuits, butter and yoghurt and set a bit aside for the topping, then push the rest into a 30cm baking tray with the end of a rolling pin.
STEP 2: Blend the filling ingredients except the bananas and add layers of the filling ingredients and banana slices to the baking tray.
STEP 3: Chill overnight (or for at least 3 hours) so it sets. Use round or heart shaped cookie cutters to carefully cut portions from the cheesecake.
STEP 4: Then top with remaining banana slices and berries, demerara sugar and a sprinkling of the cheesecake base.
P.S. Top tip: You can still enjoy a lovely buttery taste without all the high fat and calorie content of butter by replacing some (not all!) of the butter in your cheesecake base with fat-free Greek yoghurt.
