Yogurt cheesecake with strawberries
This cheesecake has everything I love about a cheesecake. It’s soft, it’s creamy, and it’s incredibly tasty. That is also the biggest disadvantage of this cheesecake.
Because can you stick to one point? The good news is, this yogurt cheesecake isn’t overly sweet. So you can use it not only as a dessert, but also for breakfast. And of course, you can serve it with coffee.
Lots of strawberries
Strawberries are at their peak now so now is the time to make this strawberry yogurt cheesecake. A relatively large amount of gelatin goes into this cheesecake because the structure is quite soft. It does need some extra support. I use the standard size gelatin sheet that you can buy in the supermarket. If you have large gelatin sheets, half is enough.
Something to keep in mind is that you have to let the yogurt cheesecake stiffen in the refrigerator for at least six hours. And preferably a whole night. Then you know for sure that it is strong enough to cut well. I sometimes want to be impatient and of course, it tastes fine, but it looks a bit less tight.
