Not So Cheesy Cheesecake

Holiday Treat

This is from my Top 10 Tasty Recipes for Diabetic Diet Cookbook on Amazon Kindle.

The main photo on the top of this blog  is from our Not So Cheesy Cheesecake recipe. This time with a twist, I used 2 packets of Knox gelatin to make it firmer so I could present it like Flan. You might wish to garnish with fresh fruit and perhaps whipped cream.

Cheesecake Fig Crust

Cheesecake Fig Crust

2 packets of Knox unflavored gelatin

1/4-1/2 cup of Stevia or Cane sugar

2 packages of half Greek yogurt cream cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla or favorite flavoring

1 cup of boiling hot water

Crust

8 dried figs

1/4 cup of dried cranberries

1/2 to 3/4 cup of Almond or Cashew flour or sometimes called meal

vegetable spray or olive oil.

Directions

In a food processor or blender add figs, cranberries,cashew flour  whizz

around until it forms a paste. Add more of the cashew flour it the mixture is too loose.

Spray glass molds with vegetable spray or lightly grease with olive oil.

Place mixture into glass molds. I use Pyrex glass, using your hands to

press the mixture into the bottom of the mold like you would a graham cracker crust.

Next, dissolve gelatin and stevia in a bowl with 1 cup of boiling water until all the mixture

is clear and all the gelatin has been dissolved. Set aside to cool just a bit, not too cool or it

will firm up too quickly.

In a food processor or blender add the mixture to 2 packages of half

yogurt cream cheese,blend until the mixture is smooth.

Cheesecake Flan

Cheesecake Flan

Pour into your fig-cashew flour crust.Place in  fridge for a few hours to set.

To make the flan like cheesecake in the photo remove from fridge let set for a few minutes invert onto serving plate and tap the top it should release onto your serving plate. If not hold you hand on the bottom of the glass mold the heat from your hand should release the mold.

  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp chopped chives for garnish
  • A few drops of Tabasco sauce to taste
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Additional Notes:

Chef’s Tip | To make the homemade croutons, simply take a thick slice of your favorite (crusty cottage loaf or crusty olive bread) and cut into bite-size pieces. Place onto a baking sheet, drizzle then with some Greek olive oil and bake until golden brown.
