  • Hey Derek, great recipe! Did Healthy ‘N Fit recently sponsor you? If so, congrats! That’s awesome, you deserve it! Eat that whole cheesecake to celebrate! haha.

  • This was is amazing! Really rich and chocolately, and it didn’t taste “healthy” at all. Even my kids liked it. 🙂 Thanks for the great recipes!

  • Hey Derek, is there a substitute for the greek yoghurt? Could you use normal yoghurt or would it be too thin? What about cottage cheese (whizzed up) or sour cream? It’s just really hard to find low fat vanilla flavoured greek yoghurts here in Australia and I don’t really like the taste of plain greek yoghurt!

    Thanks in advance!

      • Hey Derek, so I made it using normal yogurt which did work fine thanks! It is delicious! I also reduced the second cooking time by 20 minutes (to 30 minutes) but it was still a bit dry on the outside of the cheesecake. Do I need to reduce it even more next time? Thanks so much for replying to all my comments so I can perfect these recipes!

  • Just awsome! Second recipe from your page I tried and it went out just as beautiful and decadent…
    Thanks SO MUCH, this might even become our christmas dessert =)
