The great thing about this Low Fat Cheesecake is that it is made with caster sugar instead of icing sugar, low digestive biscuits and fruit which bursts through the cream cheese upon baking. A healthy heavenly delight!

  • 30g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 low-fat digestive biscuits
  • 40g unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Put the biscuits in a bag and bash the biscuits to crumbs with a rolling pin
  2. Put the crushed biscuits into a bowl and add the butter and mix with your fingers
  3. Spoon the biscuit mix into an 8 inch dish. You could use 8 ramekins if you prefer
  4. Use your thumbs or the back of the spoon to press down the mixture to form a base for your cheesecake
  5. Place raspberries or blueberries onto the biscuit base
  6. Place soft cheese in a clean bowl and add a beaten egg to it
