Method

  1. Put the biscuits in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin until you have chunky crumbs. Divide between 4 glasses or small bowls.
  2. Beat the soft cheese, yogurt, sugar and vanilla together until smooth, then spoon over the crumbs and chill until you are ready to serve.
  3. Stir the jam in a bowl until loose, then gently stir in the strawberries. Divide the strawberries between the cheesecakes and serve.

This is the best cheesecake ever!!! Low-fat, healthy, very delicious and easy to make. I've made a number of different cheesecakes over the years but my family and friends always ask for these cheesecake pots for desert. For myself I use crushed nuts instead of biscuits and stevia instead of sugar.

So simple, so quick, and so blooming delicious. I used a mixture of amaretti biscuits and digestives, and also went heavy on the strawberries. Would be lovely with some almonds in the base.

Delicious. The ginger biscuits are essential as they add great flavour. Don't bash them too much though as they are really good as chunky bits. I served mine in old Bonne Maman jars.

Mixed with raspberries that I blitzed and pushed through a sieve, rather than jam. We all loved it

Really simple to make, looks great, and everyone loved it. I didn't have ginger biscuits so just used digestives but mixed a little ginger in with them. I also used raspberries instead of strawberries, and used some frozen raspberries to make a raspberry sauce instead of the jam. Delicious.

I made this for a dinner party dessert on Friday and I am making it again for a family Easter Sunday lunch; it is THAT good! Really quick and simple, but so tasty!

I wanted to try this recipe because of the healthy element, unfortunatley the healthy element (greek yogurt) spoilt it entirely. The desert just tasted of yougurt no matter how much strawberry I put in. Will deffinately stick to double cream in future.

Gorgeous. Made these with my 6 year old daughter for tea. Really easy. Put crushed shortbread biscuits in base as that's all I had. Used frozen raspberries from freezer which I defrosted quickly in microwave. Will make again.

This worked really well, very easy to make and tasted great. You can't turn them out so have to serve in a glass as shown in the picture. I grilled fresh rhubarb will a tblsp of demerara sugar (and allowed to cool) to put on top.

So quick, simple and tasty. I used 4 heaped tbsp of caster sugar, which was a bit of a mistake and perhaps a lot sweater than it should have been. Will definitely try different versions and less sugar next time!

I made these last night using strawberries and we all thought they were absolutely scrumptious. I couldn't find low-fat biscuits so just used Tesco's own ginger nuts. They were such a hit I've been asked to make them tonight too, so trying the peach melba version this time. Guilt-free cheesecakes... Heaven! :-)

Have made this several times as a quick dinner party dessert and each time they have gone down a storm! And great as they can be made ahead of time.

This saved me last night when my pavlovas stuck to the foil! I whipped it up in minutes and they looked amazing served in martini glasses. Ok, I admit I didn't make the low fat version, instead using low fat cream cheese and whipping cream. It went down a storm though!

We love this dessert. So easy to make. I use Light Digestives for the base layer. Then have used either Greek 0 fat yoghurt or home made 0 fat strawberry yoghurt mixed with the low fat soft cheese. If using the Greek then I do add vanilla extract if using the strawberry I don't. I don't add any caster sugar at all as it is sweet enough for us all without it. For the strawberry topping I use fresh strawberries and add a dash of balsamic vinegar and a twist of black pepper. I prepare this and leave in the fridge until just before serving then add the jam to the strawberry mix and top off the dessert.
