How to make a 3-ingredient cheesecake

This week we tried out Foodies of SA’s 3-ingredient cheesecake, we wanted to put it to the test if the recipe really works and does it taste like an actual cheesecake. The recipe calls for biscuits, plain yogurt and condensed milk.

What you’ll need:

a pack of lemon creams

1kg plain yogurt

1 can condensed milk


For the base

  1. Pop the lemon creams into a zip lock bag, crush using a rolling pin.
  2. Grease a medium sized square microwave safe bowl, add the crushed lemon creams. Microwave for 30-45 seconds. Mix the crumbs together well then with the back of a spoon, press the crumb down onto the base of the dish firmly to create your crust.

For the Filling

  1. Mix the yogurt and Nestlé Condensed Milk together in a bowl. Microwave the filling for 2-3 minutes. Remove the bowl, mix rapidly and put back in the microwave for another 2-3 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture over the lemon cream biscuit base and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight for best results.
  3. Once the cheesecake has set completely, slice into squares and serve with fresh berries and mint leaves to garnish.
