UPDATE: Below you will find a Vegan Cheesecake Layer Option and a Non-Vegan Option – choose which you prefer and use that in your recipe.

Wooo! I’m currently obsessed with making healthy cheesecake. This recipe is a greek-yogurt cheesecake recipe but don’t worry vegans in the next couple weeks I have a few cheesecake and square options coming for you!

Can you hear the excitement in my voice?!

I have been on a healthy cheesecake kick before. Here are two amazing healthy cheesecake recipes: Key Lime Cheesecake with Coconut Whipped Cream and Skinny Pumpkin Cheesecake.

These Healthy Lemon Coconut Cheesecake Bites are unreal. They are tart, sweet, creamy… they’re just the perfect lemon-coconut-cheesecake square. Aside from the fact that these are perfectly healthy, natural squares.

The crust bottom is reminiscent of my Larabar or Energy Ball recipes. Here are the links to those recipes:

Blueberry Muffin, Cherry Pie and Chocolate Cherry Lara Balls
How to Make Power Balls
Key Lime Pie Energy Balls

This recipe is as simple as throwing things in your food processor and freezing them. That simple, that delicious – Amazing! This Healthy Cheesecake Recipe is perfect for anyone craving something sweet while looking to lose weight, a healthy family dessert option, to serve at parties, for Valentine’s Day, or just a sweet bite after dinner.

Please make these this week and then come back and comment on this post!

President’s Choice Meyer Lemons

Just a quick note that I used the new PC Meyer Lemons in this recipe. Their claim to fame is that they are more sweet. Did I feel they are more sweet? No. But, I’m going to get them again and just have them in my hot lemon water and see how I really feel about them. I’ll let you know.
