These little pots of heaven are so simple to make. No baking and no whisking, just a little stir and you’ve created one light and tasty dessert. Perfect for summers on the terrace post-bbq, the zingy lemon is a great palate cleanser.

Lemon Cheesecake Pots

Serves: 2

Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey or rice malt syrup

For the cheesecake

  • 1 1/2 cups plain greek yoghurt*
  • 1 tablespoon honey or Natvia (stevia)
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

Garnish

  • 1 slice of lemon, cut in half

Method

  1. In a blender, pulse the oats to a flour.
  2. Add the flour to a bowl and add the sweetner of choice and lemon juice.
  3. Press mixture into the base of two glass jars.
  4. In a bowl or jug, add the yoghurt, lemon juice and sweetener of choice.
  5. Sprinkle over the xanthan gum if using – this makes for a thicker more ‘cheesecake’ like texture.
  6. Mix the yoghurt mixture with a spoon until well combined then pour into class jars
  7. Chill for 1 hour before garnishing with a slice of lemon, and enjoy.

Tip

  • *Substitute plain goats milk yoghurt or blended silken tofu (dairy free) if you prefer.
  • Don’t opt for a store-bought lemon yoghurt – they’re likely to be packed with sugar.
  • Add a tablespoon of walnuts to the oats before processing for some body-loving fatty acids.
