“This is a recipe I got from a friend with a diabetic husband. Makes an excellent tasting cheesecake that is incredibly easy to prepare. You may use sugar substitute and sugar-free yogurt if desired. The flavor of yogurt determines the flavor of the cheesecake, so feel free to experiment.”

The flavor and texture was just OK. I made it with strawberry yogurt, homemade graham cracker crust and Splenda. Also pureed fresh strawberries, sweetened with more Splenda and a dash of Grand Marnier, and served on the side as a fresh compote-type sauce (see picture) which helped the presentation. ALTHOUGH I KNOW THIS RECIPE DOESN'T CLAIM TO BE NY STYLE CHEESECAKE, I found it to be nothing more than a wannabe. So sorry, but it's hard to get all excited about this one. A Jello cheesecake mix scores higher for flavor and texture. I had expected a whole lot more from reading previous reviews. I found its main virtue to be that it's easy, although truthfully not all that much easier than making the real thing. I won't be making this again because to me, I'd rather spend the very little extra time to make the real thing which always yields spectacular results, even when substituting Splenda for the sugar. This dessert was so aggressively mediocre that we didn't eat anymore after trying our first slice - we ate the strawberry coulis over fruit salad, since that part was wonderful, but the rest got thrown out. To make a long story short, it's passable, at best.

Perfect!! I made my own crust and used blueberry yogurt. I also used a can of blueberries to make my own topping (there is usually a recipe for pie filling on the back of the label!) - avoid the artifical colors, etc.. that are usually in canned pie filling! This baked perfectly!! Tastes perfect too!! This is the ONLY cheesecake recipe to use! I will try it with more sugar and 1/2 cup pumpkin puree for Thanksgiving to experiment! *** 9/18/2007 - - Great 2nd time!! This time I used strawberry yogurt and strawberry extract!!
