There are times that I thought of naming this site “chronicles of gaining weight” because that would some up the first half of my 2014. I know I was too busy engaging in so many things but looking back I could only recount the food I’ve eaten and the people I was with 🙂
Just this weekend mom bought 2 kilos of ripe mango from a friend and so we thought of making a dessert out of it. Naturally mango float was what everyone had in mind so we planned on buying graham today. But while my brother was busy finishing his float, I used the extra graham and shifted to a different dessert.
I made a yogurt cheesecake shot from ingredients we had at home. This is a modification of Nestle’s Strawberry Yogurt Cheesecake found at http://www.pepper.ph/nfsy-deconstructed-strawberry-cheesecake-shots/
I came across this recipe while browsing through Facebook during my “me time” moments 2 weeks ago during an out of town training. And since then my sweet tooth couldn’t let a day pass by without bugging me about it.
1st Layer: 1 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup melter butter, 2 tbsp white sugar
2nd Layer: 1 cup philadelphia cream cheese, 1 cup yogurt, 3 tbsp sugar, gelatin melted in milk
Topping: strawberry jam
Best served in shot glasses but if not available, salad bowls like this will do.
I did 2 trials for this. For both I omitted the corn syrup (in the original recipe, see link above) as it was not available. I only used plain strawberry jam for the topping too. For trial 2, I omitted the gelatin and milk mix as I was in a hurry to finish it.
Oh boy I just had my first bowl tsk tsk!!!
PS. in a RUSH?
Layer 1: graham cracker crumbs
