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.

I had a friend come round for lunch, with not much notice! I was able to rustle this up as a quick light lunchtime desert and it went down a treat and i was asked for the recipe. The only thing was I did not have any greek yog so I added normal plain yoghurt with a dash of thick cream to give it a little more texture and worked just fine.

Very simple pud but a bit sickly for me.

I have made these, or a variation on them six times in the past fortnight, they are delicious! I use Tesco low fat digestives and have varied the recipes using raspberries or cherries (with respective jams). Very good jam makes all the difference.

I absolutely adore cheesecake or anything with a biscuit base for that matter. However, after eating one of these I was surprised to hear myself say that if I make them again (which I will do) I will leave out the biscuits. I just felt it was a nice dessert without them. Or at the very least I would perhaps use half the amount of biscuits. On the whole though a yummy pudding, that is quick to make and definitely doesn't taste low fat!

I made these for my fussy in-laws and I was pleased that they all really liked it. I was slightly worried that it would taste really low fat but I was proved wrong. Give it a go and be pleasantly surprised!

Went to the supermarket and forgot the recipe so mistakenly used low fat creme fraiche with Greek yog instead of cream cheese - delicious!

The 2nd time i used the cream cheese with Greek yog, but raspberries were on offer (didnt use the jam) - delicious!

I will be making this simple yet successful dessert again and again!

Have to agree with everyone else! Quick and easy desert which looks good and tastes great. I will certainly be making this again and will also try other fruits.

This was a delicious and satisfying dessert. I substitued the topping for lemon curd, and grated some lemon rind into the cheese and yogurt filling. Really enjoyed it. My only tip would be to serve this as smaller portions in little glasses, as I felt a bit overfaced afterwards.

I made this for a Sunday dessert after the outside chicken kiev receipe. Its really easy to make and its so moreish. Becuase its made with low fat ingredients you can eat it without feeling guilty! Having said that I added a tiny bit of whipped double cream on top of the strawberries. Excellent receipe and I will be making it again for a dinner party!

Have made this today as a pudding for our Sunday roast, it went down a treat! It was really lovely and you couldn't tell at all it was low fat. I will definitely be trying this one again.

These were really tasty and easy to make! I actually used low fat digestives because I'm not too keen on ginger biscuits - they worked well....and if you're worried about the biscuit crumb not binding together properly, why not mix them with some low fat spread....Perfect for a dinner party if you have 2 other courses to concentrate on!

These are little gems; it is so good to find a low fat cheesecake recipe without compromising on taste.

I added a tablespoon of amaretto spirit to the sauce and finished it off with a sprinkling of icing sugar. Very yummy.
