White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Hi Everyone,

I don’t know if you noticed lately but I have had a major sweet tooth.  First it was Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies, than Jelly Bean Sugar CookiesBlueberry Lemon Bundt Cakes and now White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake.  I must stop with all these sweets, but I can’t, there all so good.  But a good thing is they are all low calorie.

These mini cheesecakes are a spin off of my Lemon Cheesecake, but these ones are a little more decadent.  There made with Vanilla Greek Yogurt, White Chocolate and swirled with Raspberry Jam.  The combination of raspberry and white chocolate is amazing together, a match made in heaven. They are absolutely delicious!  There moist, rich, creamy and ultimately a guilt-free indulgent.  Yes, I said guilt-free.

I followed your suggestions and used foil lined muffin liners and they are so much easier to remove the cheesecakes from them.  Thank you for that!!  These little desserts would be so perfect to serve at a brunch, Easter or any occasion, maybe just because you deserve a special treat. There also very easy to make.  The whole process took about 30 minutes.  You just have to wait for them to cool.  Here is one all dressed up that I made for my Hubby.

I think he was pleasantly pleased with his little cheesecake.  I know I was!  I ate two of them!  I swear I feel like bingeing sometimes, because I could totally eat more of them, but I’ll settle for two, for now!!

I tend to get on kicks with things and I can’t quite!  But I am sure you have noticed that.  I am on such a yogurt kick right now, thanks to Chobani yogurt.  I love seeing all the different things I can make with it!  Plus I love the challenge to seeing if I can make them low calorie.  Can you believe I made a cheesecake with chocolate for only 76 calories?  But the taste of this cheesecake is even more incredible.  It’s so light, creamy and oh so perfect, I don’t think I could have made this cheesecake any better.

Well I hoped you liked my past few days of my sweet tooth.  Tomorrow I am going to try, key word here, is try to be better!  I have a few blog hops coming up and I need to start creating with my special ingredients.  I just love finding new creative dishes.  Cooking and baking is so much fun.

Time to do a little strength training before bed!  Now go make some cheesecake, you will not be disappointed!!  When you make them and take that first bite just remember I told you so!  :)

Have a lovely Wednesday!!!

  1. So I totally didn’t know this at first, either, but you don’t need to leave the white liners in the foil liners. They’re actually only there to keep the foil liners seperate. And without the paper liners, they’ll stay moister and none should stick to the foil liner, either. ;-)

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Thanks for telling me. I was wondering why there were two liners. lol!! Silly that I need directions on using foil liners!!
