2 tablespoons of Vanilla Extract
1 Box Instant Sugar-Free Cheesecake Pudding Mix (unmade)
3 cups Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup Splenda
Crafting the Masterpiece – Step by Step:
Begin by preheating your oven to a toasty 350 degrees F.
In a capacious bowl or a stand mixer, amalgamate eggs, Splenda, vanilla, and yogurt until a harmonious blend is achieved.
The Pudding Mix:
Gradually introduce the dry cheesecake pudding mix into the concoction. Ensure a steady incorporation to thwart the formation of lumps. Patience is key in this stage.
Pan Selection and Greasing:
Select a 7-inch push or springform cheesecake pan. A parchment paper layer at the pan’s base, generously greased, adds an extra layer of finesse. For those without these pans, a pie pan or dish is a viable substitute.
Pour the meticulously crafted cheesecake batter into the greased pan and place it in the center of the preheated oven.
Allow it to dance in the heat for 40 minutes. The finished product should exhibit a subtle golden hue with gentle cracks beginning to form. The center should retain a slight jiggle.
Cooling and Chilling:
Let your creation cool to room temperature before embarking on its final journey to the refrigerator. Chill it thoroughly before serving.
The fruits of your labor deserve preservation. Store the cheesecake in the refrigerator, either within the pie plate covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. This ensures its delectable quality for 3 to 4 days, with a note of caution – beyond day 3, a touch of wateriness might seep in, though the taste remains unaffected.
Yes, you can venture into different flavor realms by swapping the sugar-free pudding mix. Chocolate, pistachio, banana, lemon, butterscotch, and more await your experimentation.
Shelf Life Queries:
This cheesecake boasts a lifespan of 3 to 4 days in the fridge, making it a short-lived, yet delightful treat.
While nonfat Greek yogurt is the optimal choice, substitutions with low-fat or fat-free yogurt or cottage cheese are feasible. Ensure any changes align with your WW zero-point list.
This low-carb delight is not Keto-friendly due to its low fat content. Perfect for those prioritizing low-carb intake without delving into the high-fat domain.
Water Bath Absence Explained:
The absence of a water bath stems from the cheesecake’s shorter baking time and the need for direct heat to ensure a well-cooked bottom and edges, especially since it lacks a crust.
