New Year's dessert for diabetics: a festive cheesecake

New Year's table can not do without dessert. Dietary cheesecake is a great option for a festive tea party. It is enough to replace the classic cheese and creamy mass with a delicate cottage cheese soufflé, and sugar with a sweetener and the calorie content of the dessert will be almost halved. The time of active cooking takes only half an hour.

For a sandy base, any cookie with cereals (best "Jubilee") is suitable. It will need 200 g. Other ingredients:

  • 0.5 kg low-fat cottage cheese;
  • 350 g classic yogurt;
  • 50 ml of apple juice (no sugar, better for baby food or freshly squeezed)
  • one and a half eggs;
  • vegetable or butter to lubricate the form;
  • 1.5 tablespoons of starch;
  • 4 tablespoons of fructose;
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon

 

This composition is the best fit for diabetics. Cottage cheese and yoghurt are subjected to minimal heat treatment, while retaining their beneficial properties.
