Healthy Cheesecake Of Your Dreams

A secretly healthy cheesecake recipe that is so creamy, you'd never guess it isn't full of sugar and calories!

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 8 -12 slices


  • 24 oz cream cheese, such as trader joes vegan
  • 2 cups plain yogurt, such as coconutmilk yogurt
  • 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch - or here's a Keto Cheesecake Recipe
  • 1/2 cup sugar or maple syrup, honey, or xylitol for sugar-free
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 2 additional tbsp sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Fill a 9x13 pan about halfway with water and place it on your oven’s lower rack. Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Using a blender or hand blender, beat all cheesecake ingredients just until smooth. (Do not overbeat, as this would introduce air bubbles that would burst in the oven and thus cause cracking.) Smooth into a 9-inch springform pan, either lined with a crust or without. Place on the middle rack above the other pan. Bake 30 minutes, and do not open the oven during this time. When the time is up, leave the oven door closed and turn off the heat. Leave in the closed oven for an additional 5 minutes. Then remove—it will still look underdone—and let cool 20 minutes before placing the still-underdone cheesecake in the refrigerator. It’s important not to put the cheesecake right from the oven to the fridge, because you want it to cool gradually so it doesn’t crack. Chill at least 6 hours, during which time it will firm up to the proper texture. Leftovers covered in the fridge will last around 3-4 days. That is… if you don’t eat it all first!
