Instructions: Monoportion orange cheesecake
For this recipe I used spreadable crem cheese by Arla that was kindly offered to me by its manufacturer and silicone moulds My Snack by Silikomart. The mould is perfect for creating protein bars, chocolates or cake decorations.
For this recipe all ingredients (except the whipping cream) must be at room temperature.
Mix cream cheese, sugar, cornstarch, orange zest, egg and Greek yogurt using a whisk. The mixture must be smooth and homogeneous but be careful not to whisk the mixture too vigorously or you will incorporate too much air.
Divide the mixture between 2 moulds (8 pieces each). Do not fill them to the rim because the cheesecake will rise during baking and then lower afterwards. Preheat the oven to 180 °C, put in the oven, lower the temperature to 150 °C and cook you cheesecakes for 20 to 25 minutes. You will find that the cheesecake is ready when it becomes elastic to the touch. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
Meanwhile crumble your cookies into a pan, add coarsely chopped almonds and butter. Turn on the heat and cook until the crumble becomes crispy and lightly toasted.
Serve you monoportion cheesecake with prepared crumble, a slice of orange, a few decorations of previously whipped cream and some fresh mint leaves.

For this recipe I used cream cheese made by Arla that was kindly offered to me by its manufacturer. This cheese is 100% natural. It contains no preservatives, coloring agents, additives or stabilizers of any kind. The naturalness of the cheese feels in the flavor that is very delicate and fresh, definitely less heavier and “buttery” than the brands I have used up to now. Perfect for this kind of recipe.
