With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you NEED to make this cheesecake!

A few years ago I first attempted my first cheesecake with yogurt, and since then I never looked back. I adapted this from my very popular Strawberry Swirled Cheesecake with chocolate in mind, of course.

And since I always second guess myself when making lightened up desserts, I gave this to some of my family members, and they loved it! So, if you need an idea for Valentine’s Day (or any day) give this dessert a try.

And just an FYI, if you need a fabulous breakfast idea, we LOVE these heart shaped chocolate chip banana pancakes!

If you want to make a super easy 2-ingredient dessert… chocolate covered strawberries always impress!

And if you’re a bread pudding lover like myself, and don’t mind splurging a few extra calories, I love this Dark Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding!

  1. This was delicious and the whole family loved it!

  2. This recipe was great! I ended up needing more crust to coat the pan. The 1/2 cup of crushed graham crackers wasn’t enough. I added sugar free chocolate chips to my cheesecake batter. It tasted great! 

  3. I made these sous vide in jars (just the cheesecake portion). Really good. I did 80*C for 60 min. Came out very well. Will top with crumble and fruit for reverse cheesecake. 
    Thanks for posting this lighter version. 

  4. Is there a reason this is in a pan and not a cheesecake pan? I know it’s silly but I think I’d scare my family less with this “healthy cheesecake” if it was in a traditional pan lol

  5. This is fantastic!! I cut mine into 36 pieces so they are bite size. Just perfect for a Garden Party !

  6. Saw this recipe this morning and ran out to get what I needed to make it for my Valentines!  It looks delicious. Can’t wait to taste!

  7. This is so delicious! I was very worried that I would have trouble getting it out of the pan, but it wasn’t a problem at all. The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is that the raspberries don’t stay put on top of the cheesecake. I might try putting them on top before putting it in the fridge next time.

  8. Any ideas how to modify for orange??

  9. I made it using triple fruit Greek yogurt. Gave it such a nice flavor. So, so good!
