Yoghurt and cheesecake doesn't sound like a combination that should work but trust us it is really tasty. We used strawberry flavoured Skyr yoghurt as it has a great thick and creamy consistency that lends itself to a cheesecake recipe really well. Go on give it a try!


  1. Crush the digestive biscuits in a bag with a rolling pin (or blitz in a food processor) place in a bowl and put to one side.

    • 350g Digestive biscuits
  2. Melt the butter with the muscovado sugar and pour over the biscuits, then add the honey and combine.

    • 150g Butter (Unsalted, melted)
    • 30g Billington's Light Muscovado
    • 1 tbsp Honey
  3. Pour the mixture into a lined 9” spring form cake tin and press down to firm up.

  4. Place in the fridge to set whilst you prepare the topping.

  5. Place the gelatine leaves in water to soak as per the instructions on the gelatine pack.

    • 5 Gelatine Leaves
  6. In a separate bowl place the Skyr and sugar and beat together.

    • 750g Strawberry Skyr Yoghurt
    • 100g Silver Spoon Caster Sugar
  7. Place some of the mixture into a saucepan and warm on a low heat.

  8. Squeeze the water out of the gelatine leaves and add to the saucepan. Heat until the leaves melt.

    • 5 Gelatine Leaves
  9. Add more of the Skyr mixture and the vanilla bean paste bit by bit and continue to mix throughout.

  10. In a separate bowl whip the cream until it reaches soft peak and mix together with the Skyr mixture.

    • 260ml Double Cream
  11. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base.

  12. Puree strawberries and drop small amounts on top of the cheesecake, then using a skewer or cocktail stick run it through the centre of each drop to make a ripple effect.

  13. Place the cheesecake into the fridge to set for 4 hours. Ideally 24 hours for the best results.

    I have made this following the recipe, however in the method it does not mention the vanilla paste. I am also wondering if it is meant to be 1 tsp and not tablespoon of vanilla paste.
