Chocolate & Lime Cheesecake

What do you do when you drop a carton of cream cheese out of the fridge and it splits?
Make cheesecake of course.

I had also just made a litre of natural yoghurt so it was a perfect way to combine the 2 in a dessert for the weekend. I strained the yoghurt through a sieve lined with kitchen paper to remove any of the excess juice beforehand but you could use a thick set yoghurt or double cream instead.

Chocolate & Lime Cheesecake

1 litre of natural yoghurt (or use 600ml lightly whipped double cream)
250g Digestive biscuits
25g Cocoa powder
85g butter, melted
1 block of Lime jelly
300g full fat cream cheese
100ml boiling water
  • Strain the excess liquid from the yoghurt as mentioned above & discard the liquid
  • In the meantime crush the biscuits until they are a fine crumb
  • Stir in the cocoa powder and melted butter and mix well
  • Press into the base of a loose bottomed or springform cake tin & refrigerate
  • Stir the block of jelly into the boiling water until dissolved & allow to cool
  • Beat the cream cheese gradually into the yoghurt & stir in the cooled jelly
  • Pour onto the base and place in the fridge for around 4 hours until set
  • Decorate with cocoa powder or melted chocolate
