    Berry Keylime "Cheesecake"

     

    A cheesecake with no cheese?! 

     

    Now that's just silly talk...

     

    Or is it?

     

    While developing recipes for Dannon's Oikos Greek Yogurt I played around with the idea of making something sweet instead of savory out of the yogurt. But experimenting in the baking world usually means I end up frustrated, covered in flour, downing my 3rd glass of wine....

     

    Well not this time!! This time (and maybe only this time) I am a genius! Or at least I created something edible ;)

     

     

     

     

    RECIPE:


    Crust:

    9 Graham Crackers

    2Tbs Sugar

    4Tbs Butter, melted

     

    Filling:

    2 containers Oikos Key Lime Greek Yogurt

    2 containers Oikos Strawberry or Raspberry Greek Yogurt

    4 eggs

    1 can sweetened condensed milk

    4Tbs All Purpose Flour

     

    Pulse graham crackers, sugar and butter in a food processor. Pat mixture into the bottom of a 9inch spring form pan. Set aside. In a bowl combine 2 containers of Key Lime Greek Yogurt, 2 eggs, 2 Tbs flour and half of the sweetened condensed milk. In a separate bowl combine the Berry Greek Yogurt with the remaining eggs, flour and sweetened condensed milk.  Add red food coloring to the Berry mixture and green to the Key Lime mixture if desired.  Pour Berry mixture on top of the crust, then slowly pour the Key Lime mixture on top of that. Bake at 350 for 35-40 until the center is set and edges are fully cooked. Refrigerate for at least 3 hour or over-night. Serve and enjoy!!

    Hi, may i know how many oz/gram/amount is 1 container of the yogurt you are using? :)
    THANK YOU!

    @humin These containers are 5.3oz each. I have noticed that some containers of yogurt are 6oz and I think that if you used one of that size it shouldn't make any difference in the recipe. Enjoy!!
