Healthy Cherry Cheesecake
Hey my lovelies,
what should you do if live gives you a ton of cherries and old whole wheat cookies? Exactly - You make a strawberry cheesecake with cookie crust!
It's super easy and fast to prepare and the best - it's healthier than a "normal" cheesecake!
For the crust you need:
Whole wheat cookies (like Graham Crackers, I made a small cake, so I used half of a package)
1 ripe banana
First, preheat the oven to 150C° and spray a pie pan with cooking spray or coconut oil.
Add the cookies to your food processor and mix them until they are really small. Add 1 banana and mix it until the banana is also mashed. If the dough seems to dry, add some coconut oil. Remove it from your food processor and combine everything with your hands. If it's still too dry add more coconut oil. When everything is well combined, add the dough to a pie pan and flatten out the dough with your hands. The whole pie pan should be covered (don´t forget to form the side of the crust)
For the filling you need:
1 package low fat curd cheese (for a small cake 250g, for a large 500g)
1 low fat yoghurt (250g/500g)
Honey (depends on how sweet you like it)
Cherries (as many as you like, I used about 2 handful)
Just combine the low fat curd cheese with the yoghurt. Add the honey and try if it's sweet enough. Mix in the egg and at the end add the cherries.
Bake the cheesecake for about 40 minutes or until the filling seems firm.
