These Weight Watchers Greek yogurt cheesecakes are a staple in my weightless journey.

WHAT INGREDIENTS DO I USE TO MAKE THIS ONE POINT WEIGHT WATCHERS CHEESECAKE?

1: I USED NON-FAT GREEK YOGURT:
Non-fat Greek yogurt is the main ingredient for this cheesecake.

2: I USED SUGAR-FREE PUDDING:
Here is the secret, The sugar-free pudding is used as a thickening agent and gives these low point cheesecake flavorings.

3: THE EGGS:
These weight watchers’ cheesecakes rely on eggs for their thickening power.

4: MY FAVORITE SWEETENER:
For this recipe, I used Lakanto Monkfuit Sweetener to sweeten the cheesecake. This is my favorite sugar substitute.

WHAT DO I USE TO BAKE MY WW CHEESECAKE IN?
For this cheesecake, I used THIS 9-INCH SPRINGFORM PAN.

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes
ADDITIONAL TIME: 12 hours
TOTAL TIME: 12 hours 40 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. First thing preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a mixing bowl add eggs, sugar substitute and extract & mix well using a wire whisk.
  3. Then add yogurt, cake mix, and dry pudding mix. Whisk well.
  4. Lightly brush a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. I used SPRINGFORM PAN.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. ( It may look jiggly but once it’s chilled, it will set.)
  6. Let it cool for about 15-20 minutes. Leave the cheesecake in the pan and cover it with plastic wrap.
  7. Let it chill for at least 12 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator

Tips:

  1. I recommend mixing the cheesecake by hand rather than a mixer. That way the yogurt stays nice and thick.
  2. You can substitute regular instant pudding mix for the sugar-free pudding mix. The servings for that is 10 servings / 2 points per serving.
  3. It can take up to 12 hours for the texture and flavor to completely set in. The longer it chills the better it tastes.
  4. Cover with a paper towel and then plastic wrap to help absorb moisture for up to a week.
  5. Freeze for 1-3 months in an airtight container
  6. I use a granulated sugar substitute, if the sugar substitute is not granulated it tends to give a gritty texture to the cheesecake.
  7. The overall point value is the same per slice regardless if you use a regular or sugar-free cake mix.
  8. Toppings are extra points.

SERVINGS: MAKES 8 SERVINGS

GREEN: 2 SmartPoint per serving if using 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute or 2 servings for 4 SmartPoints or 3 SmartPoints if using 3 whole eggs, 2 servings for 6 SmartPoints
BLUE: 1 SmartPoints per serving1 SmartPoints per serving or 2 servings for 3 SmartPoints
PURPLE: 1 SmartPoints per serving or 2 servings for 3 SmartPoints

Notes:

If you omit the cake mix, the entire cheesecake is 4 SmartPoints if you’re following the BLUE or PURPLE plan. If you make 8 slices each slice is technically 1/2 Smartpoint on the BLUE or PURPLE plan. The WW app will at times round it up to 1 SmartPoint and other times the app will round it down to Zero Smartpoint. You can choose to track the points of how you see fit.
