Light baked cheesecake

    1 hour

    I wanted a fairly light version of a cheesecake for my first one so I used 0% Greek yoghurt and as a result got a light, mousse-like cheesecake. Play around with the biscuits you use for the base - you can use light digestives or amaretti. Both are lighter choices!
