WHAT I USE TO BAKE MY ZERO CHEESECAKE IN?

I use THIS 9-INCH SPRINGFORM PAN.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 large eggs or 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 3 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt ( I recommend using Chobani or Fage)
  • 1 small box instant JELL-O SUGAR-FREE/FAT-FREE LEMON, or vanilla pudding
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp zero-point white granulated sugar substitute ( I prefer LAKANTO) I recommend a granulated sugar substitute, if the sugar substitute is not granulated it tends to give a gritty texture to the cheesecake
  • 1/4 tsp lemon extract (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl add eggs, extract, lemon juice, a sugar substitute.
  3. Add yogurt and dry pudding, mix well using a wire whisk.
  4. Pour into a lightly greased with non-stick cooking spray pie dish or SPRINGFORM PAN. I use a 9-inch SPRINGFORM PAN.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Let it cool for about 15-20 minutes before covering it with plastic wrap.
  7. Let it chill overnight in the refrigerator.

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

Notes:

  • It may look jiggly but once it’s chilled, it will set. Let it cool for about 15-20 min before covering it with plastic wrap and let it chill overnight in the refrigerator.
  • It’s recommended to chill overnight before eating.
  • It’s needing 12 hours for the texture and flavor to completely set in.
  • I prefer to mix the ingredients by hand using a hand whisk. That way the yogurt stays nice and thick.
  • I recommend using a thick non-fat Greek yogurt such as Chobani or Fage. There is a big difference in how the cheesecake sets when you use a thicker yogurt.
  • You can substitute regular instant pudding mix for the sugar-free pudding mix. That substitution would increase the point value by 2 SmartPoints per serving.
  • If you make 8 slices each slice is technically 1/2 Smartpoint on the BLUE and PURPLE plan. The Weight Watchers app will at times round it up to 1 Point and other times the app will round it down to Zero point. So you can choose to track the points how you see fit.
