Nom: simple cheesecake style dessert treats

I made these easy but insanely yummy desserts when I had a couple of friends coming over in the week.


To make these faux strawberry cheesecakes you will need jam, greek yogurt, Philadelphia style soft cheese, ginger biscuits and strawberries.


First, crush your ginger biscuits.  You'll need 2 or 3 per person.  It doesn't all need to be crushed to dust, leave some chunks for texture.


Fill the bottom of dessert bowls or glasses like these with the crushed biscuits.


Next mix together around 250g greek yogurt (half the large tub) with half a tub of Philadelphia (125g) - this is enough to make 4 of the desserts.  Add a little sweetener if you like.


Blob half of the mixture between the four glasses.


Then put 4 tablespoons of jam into a bowl and mix it around until it becomes runny.


 Spoon half of the jam into each of the four glasses.


Then repeat with the remaining yogurt and cheese mixture and then finish with a layer of the leftover jam.


Finally, hull and quarter a small punnet of strawberries and share them between the glasses.  Done!


So incredibly easy to make and they taste delicious.  You can eat these immediately after making, but I think they taste best if you leave them for half an hour or so as the flavours blend and the biscuits soften slightly.

If you're interested, I also roughly worked out that these are around 8 weight watchers propoints.  Quite a lot, but they do taste amazingly good :)
