Greek Yogurt Cheesecake

My sister makes the best cheesecake and I’m dreaming of the one she just made over Thanksgiving. It’s her designated dessert every year and we all look forward to eating it that one time of the year. And I usually continue eating it (especially for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving!) without even asking what the ingredients are. Ignorance is bliss!! I know there’s gotta be butter in there, and I know its loaded with cream cheese, but it’s a beautiful magical dessert we all indulge in once a year.

But, for the rest of the year, I make my no-bake Greek yogurt cheesecake. This is the version you can feel good about eating all year-round and you can tell all your family and friends the ingredients at your holiday gatherings!

For serving, I like using mini mason jars or the pint size mason jars. Totally cute!

And then you can top them with fresh fruit, or I like making a simple stove-top strawberry sauce.

I love that I can make these ahead of time (they stay great in the fridge for a few days)

I love that there’s no baking involved.

And I love that they’re personal-sized!
