How to Make This Recipe

Preheat and Prepare: Set your oven to 350° degrees. If using a pie dish, lightly coat it with your preferred cooking spray and set it aside.

Whisk and Mix: In a spacious mixing bowl, combine eggs and the sugar substitute, ensuring a thorough mix. Add in the yogurt and pudding, stirring until the mixture achieves a harmonious consistency.

Into the Oven: Pour the delightful mixture into the greased pie dish or a springform pan. Bake for a tantalizing 30 minutes.

Cool and Chill: Once the cheesecake emerges from the oven, let it cool and then transfer it to the refrigerator. Allow it to chill for at least 2 hours, or if patience allows, overnight before indulging.

Ingredient Substitutions:

Regular Yogurt: Opt for regular yogurt if Greek yogurt isn’t your preference. Strain it before use to achieve a thicker consistency.

Cottage Cheese: Not a fan of Greek yogurt? Blend fat-free cottage cheese for a smooth texture before adding it to the mix.

Sugar Substitute: While Swerve is recommended, feel free to experiment with stevia, Splenda, or your preferred sugar substitute, maintaining a one-to-one substitution ratio.

Real Sugar: If you prefer, you can use real sugar, adjusting the points accordingly in your recipe builder.

Variations to Elevate Your Cheesecake Experience:

Fruit Infusion: Take your cheesecake to the next level by adding raspberries, blackberries, mango, or blueberries. Puree them for an extra burst of flavor.

Whipped Cream Topping: Indulge a bit more by topping your creation with fresh whipped cream for that extra touch of decadence.

Pro Tips for a Perfect Cheesecake:

Mini Cheesecakes: Transform this recipe into mini delights by distributing the batter into cupcake liners within a muffin tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes for perfectly portioned treats.

Points Planning: As Weight Watchers plans evolve, your points may vary. Adjust the recipe according to your personalized plan, and for precise points calculation, use the WW recipe builder app.

Storage Savvy: Cover and refrigerate leftovers; this cheesecake stays fresh for up to five days. Freeze for up to three months by wrapping tightly.


Q: What’s the Difference Between Regular Yogurt and Greek Yogurt?

A: Greek yogurt, strained for a thicker consistency, offers more protein and less sugar than regular yogurt, making it the ideal choice for our cheesecake recipe.
