A simple, no bake strawberry cheesecake – we’ve made it healthier by using Greek yogurt and only one package of light cream cheese.

No-bake strawberry Greek yogurt cheesecake

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Total Time:  3 hrs 10 min
Makes: 8 servings

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1¼ cups (300 mL) graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) margarine or butter, melted

Filling:

  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) cold water
  • 1 pkg (7 g) unflavoured gelatin
  • 1 pkg (250 g) light cream cheese softened
  • 1 tub (500 mL) strawberry Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup (125 mL) finely chopped strawberries (optional)

Topping:

  • 1½ cups (375 mL)  quartered strawberries
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (180°C).  Spray bottom of 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine crust ingredients and firmly press onto bottom and up sides of pie plate.  Bake 8 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.
  3. In small microwavable measuring cup, add cold water and sprinkle with gelatin; stir and let stand two minutes until gelatin has expanded and solidified.  Microwave on high power 30 to 40 seconds to turn gelatin back to a liquid.
  4. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Add yogurt, dissolved gelatin and chopped strawberries; beat until smooth.
  5. Pour into baked crust.  Refrigerate until set; at least 3 hours.
  6. Prepare strawberry topping by sprinkling sliced strawberries with sugar; let stand 10 minutes.  Serve over sliced cheesecake.

**Vegetarian?  Replace gelatin with agar agar.  Found in most health food and bulk food stores.
