Healthy No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

I woke up this morning wondering, “what would happen if I combined Greek yogurt with sugar-free cheesecake pudding mix?” Curious, and willing to throw away the mess if it didn’t turn out well, I whipped it up in the stand mixer:

Ummm… Yeah, how could I NOT turn that into a cheesecake?? So here’s how it went:

for the crust:
1c old fashioned oats, ground up in magic bullet
1c almond meal (Trader Joe’s)
1/4c almond milk
1-2 tbs coconut oil (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Form a crust out of the mixture in a cake pan.

2. Bake for 10-15 mins, until fragrant and golden.

3. Cool for at least 15 mins before filling.

for the filling:
3 cups plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 small package sugar free cheesecake pudding mix
1-2 packets stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Beat all ingredients in a stand mixer until well combined. Refrigerate until crust is ready.

2. Fill the crust with the Greek yogurt mixture. Refrigerate for at least 10 mins. Serve with blueberry sauce or choice of topping.
