Sometimes the simple moments in your day deserve to be celebrated. Today I made it out to the grocery store with all three kids without a major meltdown. I say that warrants a little celebration! I like to indulge in a little cheesecake now and then, so I tried Yopa Greek yogurt in “Ooh-la-la! Strawberry Cheesecake” flavour.
Oh my. It was divine.
I’ve tried a lot of different brands and varieties of Greek yogurt, because I prefer the thick and creamy texture of it over regular yogurt, but I’ve noticed that it can be difficult to find a good fat-free Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurts with 0% fat don’t often have the same silky, creamy consistency of their full-fat counterparts. I’m very satisfied with Yopa! It’s thick, smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness. It’s hard to believe it’s fat-free and has only 80 calories per serving. Plus, with double the protein than regular yogurt, it sticks with you longer. There’s also no gelatin or artificial colours/flavours.
I went a step further with this cheesecake yogurt and turned it into crustless mini cheesecakes (or I guess that should that be “yogurt cakes”?).
They’re such a great guilt-free treat if you’re craving cheesecake but could do without the calories. My kids liked them too! I think they could be good with vanilla wafers at the bottom, if you were wanting a crust.
Baked Strawberry Cheesecake Greek Yogurt Cups
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cups Yopa! “Ooh-la-la Strawberry Cheesecake” Greek Yogurt
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 350F and line muffin tin with 12 liners (I used silicone liners).
- Combine ingredients in a bowl. Pour mixture evenly into muffin cups.
- Bake for 26-28 minutes, until yogurt has set.
- Allow to cool completely, then chill in refrigerator for several hours.
We also tried Yopa! yogurt in “Very Berry Lush!” flavour and my little whine critics enjoyed it, especially topped with granola and berries. There are so many fun flavours to choose from (like Lotta Pina Colada and Va-Va-Vanilla Bean) that I’m sure we’ll be heading back to the grocery store for more…which will require another celebration! Lucky me.
