Prep Time: 20 minutes, plus 3 hours refrigeration

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup graham crackers, crushed

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 (8-ounce) package Neufchatel cream cheese

1 cup thick vanilla yogurt (Icelandic/Greek), plus 2 tablespoons thick vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 lemon, zest and juiced

1/4 cup strawberries Garnish: Mixed berries and whip cream

Preparation

01Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
02In a bowl, combine crackers and butter.
03Using a pre-lined muffin tin (or well-greased mini cheesecake pan with removable base), press 1 heaping teaspoon of mixture into bottom, creating a crust. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
04Reduce oven to 300 degrees F.

06Fill muffin tins with cheesecake mixture and bake approximately 25 to 30 minutes, or until center is almost set and slightly jiggles.
07Refrigerate 3 hours to set before removing mini cheesecakes from muffin tins.
08In a blender, puree strawberries.
09On top of each cheesecake, spread strawberry puree. Garnish with fresh berries and whip cream.
