Greek Yogurt Boston Cream Cheesecake
A lighter alternative to the typical cream cheese cheesecake, with all the flavor, plus a rich chocolate ganache to top off this boston cream cheesecake!
It really is hard to beat a good cheesecake. There are few foods I believe I would be able to eat each and every day, and cheesecake is one of them. For the most part, I like my cheesecake simple but tasteful. Meaning, the cheesecake everyone thinks of when they think of cheesecake. The cheesecake oft referred to as “Original New York Cheesecake”. The stuff is just bomb. Simply put.
This year for New Year’s I wanted to make our family a cheesecake, but I always try to make things a little healthier and lighter if possible. So, I had the idea of substituting greek yogurt for the cream cheese in a cheesecake because it seemed like a natural flavor fit. I did some research and saw that it has been done quite a bit, so I knew my thought process was on track.
So, how did I get to the Boston Cream part you ask? Well, one does not open my Mother’s fridge and find it lacking of Boston Cream Pie Greek Yogurt. If it for some reason is, it is because my Mother has been in every store around town looking for it to no avail and it is a sensitive subject not to be brought up lightly.
With my Mother’s blessing (a blessing I had to plead for) I confiscated a few of her yogurts to make the cheesecake filling and then topped it off with a chocolate ganache to create the Greek Yogurt Boston Cream Cheesecake. I have high expectations for cheesecake and was going to be disappointed if this did not come out with the great texture and taste I love in my traditional cheesecake and I had my reservations that it would meet those expectations.
To my surprise it did meet those expectations in taste and texture! It was a hit and the cheesecake’s mortality was very short. I know this isn’t a “healthy” cheesecake per se, however it is somewhat healthier than your traditional one. Hope you enjoy as much as my family and myself did!
