Tasty Orange Cheesecake
These cheesecakes are just enough to allow yourself to feel you’ve had a mouth watering dessert and not too much to undermine your weight loss. I like to make the cheese filling with half cottage cheese, if it is really not to your taste, and it is not to everyone’s, simply substitute the cottage cheese for extra cream cheese, just remember to watch out for the fat content of the cream cheese .
Ingredients: Makes two cheesecakes
- 50g Cream Cheese
- 50 g Cottage Cheese
- 30ml double cream
- 2 Digestive Biscuits
- 5g Butter, melted
- 1 Medium Orange
- 1 tablespoon Cornflour
- ½ tablespoon sugar
- 50ml orange juice, from the orange add extra if needed
Crush the digestive biscuits until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, add the melted butter and push into the bottom of two individual ramekin dishes or glasses until it is firm and even.
Grate the zest from the orange and juice the orange, in a small saucepan mix the zest, orange juice, sugar and cornflour, heat gently stirring constantly for 3 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Sieve the cottage cheese so it is smooth and mix with the cream cheese. Whip the cream until stiff and fold into the cheese mixture. Place the cheese / cream mixture over the digestive base then swirl in the orange zest mixture into the top of the cheese mixture. Place in the fridge to for 20 minutes before serving.
