Light and fruity, this lemon cheesecake from Tana Ramsay can be made in minutes and is lower in calories than other cheesecake recipes.


  • 175g cereal hoops
  • 100g low-fat spread, melted
  • 400g extra-light cream cheese
  • Grated zest of 4 lemons
  • 200g 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2tbsp lemon juice
  • 184ml carton whipping cream
  • Couple of mint leaves to decorate


  • Place the cereal hoops in to a food processor and whiz until they are broken into crumbs. Or you can place them into a bag and bash with a rolling pin.

  • Transfer to a large bowl and mix in the melted low-fat spread, stirring through until all the crushed cereal hoops are thoroughly coated.

  • Turn into a 23cm spring collar cake tin and press the mixture right into the bottom to form a base. Put this in the fridge for at least 30 mins to set.

  • Mix together the cream cheese, lemon zest, Greek yogurt, sugar and lemon juice and stir well to combine.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it’s a thick consistency and starts to stiffen. Add this to the cream cheese mix, folding through well.

  • Spoon this mix on to the top of the base. Decorate the top with a couple of mint leaves and place in the fridge to set overnight.
