Simple & Healthy Yogurt Cheesecake

Simple & Healthy Yogurt Cheesecake

This is a healthy and delicious baked cheesecake made with Greek-style yogurt. All you have to do is mix the ingredients together and bake.


500 ml (200 g when drained)
Eggs (medium)
60 g
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon
Lemon zest
1 lemon worth
White flour
3 tablespoons
Margarine or butter
a small amount


1. Drain the yogurt. Please refer to Recipe ID: 630664 for detailed instructions.
2. Preheat the oven to 170℃. Grease the insides of the cocottes with butter or margarine.
3. Add the yogurt to a bowl and beat with a whisk until smooth. Then mix in the sugar, egg, lemon juice, and sifted flour in that order.
4. Pour the mixture into the cocottes and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 170℃. Then lower the temperature to 160℃ and bake for a further 15-20 minutes.
5. Cool the cheesecakes on a wire rack, then chill completely in the refrigerator. The cheesecakes will taste even more deliciously moist when served thoroughly chilled.
6. You can use 450 ml of yogurt and still make the same amount of cheesecake. Just reduce the amount of sugar slightly.
7. This will make the cheesecake a little less flavourful but if you don't want to use lemon zest, you can replace it with lemon juice (or bottled lemon juice) instead.

Story Behind this Recipe

When my daughter was small, I wanted to make a cheesecake but we didn't have any cream cheese so I replaced it with yogurt. It came out so delicious that it's now our family's go-to recipe. Check out Recipe ID: 633318 for "Easy Yogurt Cream in the Microwave".
