Lemon and honey are classic Greek ingredients for any dish, adding a smell and flavor from the Mediterranean. But add Greek yogurt into the mix and you’ve got a wonderful, Greek-inspired cheesecake made with three of the Greekest ingredients we know.
The simplicity of this recipe makes it all the more appealing. Read below and see how quickly (and easily) you can have one of these gorgeous and tasty cheesecakes on your table.
- 1 1/2 cups plain 2% Greek yogurt
- 1 cup non fat cream cheese
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp honey
- 3 egg whites (9 tbsp if using the kind in a carton)
- 1/4 cup arrowroot starch or cornstarch
- 1 tbsp lemon zest
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350F.

- Remove from oven. Chill in fridge overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
