Blueberry Bliss Cheesecake
PointsPlus® value 4*
SmartPoints® value 6*
16 oz. fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 oz. (about 3/4 cup) fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt (like the kind by Chobani), room temperature
3 large egg whites or 1/2 cup liquid egg whites, room temperature
2 tbsp. lemon juice, room temperature
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups frozen unsweetened blueberries
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" springform cake pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
To make the cheesecake, first set out all measured ingredients. Combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until smooth, 1 - 2 minutes. While continuing to beat the mixture, gradually add yogurt, egg whites, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon. Beat until thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes. Evenly pour cheesecake mixture into the pan.
Bake in the oven until firm, 40 - 45 minutes. Set cheesecake aside and allow to cool completely in the pan.
Meanwhile, to make the topping, bring a medium-sized pot to medium-high heat on the stove. Add all topping ingredients. Add 1/2 cup cold water and mix well. Bring mixture to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Stirring occasionally, simmer until mixture is thick and gooey, 2 - 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
Once cheesecake and topping have completely cooled, evenly pour blueberry topping over the cheesecake in the pan. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, until fully chilled. Once ready to serve (see HG Tip!), release and remove the springform. Cut into 8 slices and dig in!
