Last week, I made yogurt cheese for the first time. Making yogurt cheese consists of lining a strainer with a paper towel, plopping some yogurt on top, and leaving it to chill out in the fridge overnight. Doesn’t get much easier than that folks.
I went with 1/4 cup Stonyfield Farms Fat Free French Vanilla Yogurt. Here’s the lil yogurt cheese:
Isn’t it cute???
To make the blueberry topping, I put 1/2 cup fresh blueberries + 1 packet Truvia + 1 tsp water into a food processor:
Then, I poured everything into a little pan and heated the mix on low heat until the sauce thickened up:
When the blueberries were cool, I took about 1/4 of the blueberry sauce and topped the yogurt cheesecake bite with it:
I put the cheesecake bite in the fridge while I got to cleaning my disaster kitchen…. Then I dove in to dessert:
HOLD THE TRAIN! The key component of any cheesecake is the crust! Crap! I didn’t have any graham crackers or nilla wafers (which both would have been excellent options), so I smashed up 1 tbsp of Honey Bunches of oats and put the cheesecake on top:
YUM. YUM. YUM. I’m not sure how to compute the calories on this lil guy since a lot of the yogurt is strained out and not used…. But when I include the total calories on the yogurt, this cheesecake bite is only 63 calories. I had a lot of blueberry sauce left over… Maybe I’ll use it on toast… better yet, waffles 🙂
At the Healthy Living Summit this past weekend, I was lucky to get a whole bag of Adora Calcium & Vitamin D Supplements in Premium All-Natural Dark Chocolate!
What can be better than that?!?
Ummm… How about a whole bag of Dark Chocolate AND a whole bag of Milk Chocolate Adora discs?!
The nice folks at Adora are going to give one of my readers just that!
