BM# 76: Week 3/ Day 3
Theme: July 4th Special Dishes
Dish: Individual Red, White & Blue Cheesecake
After posting 2 savory grilled dishes (Grilled potato salad and grilled tikka tofu kebabs), for the final day of this week’s ‘July 4th Special dishes’, I made individual red, white & blue cheesecake. I wanted to make a dish with the colors of American flag and thought these individual no-bake cheesecakes would be just perfect.The cheesecake component of this dessert could not be easy to put together. Just whisk all the ingredients until smooth and layer in a big trifle bowl or individual glasses. Softened cream cheese is mixed along with Greek yogurt, vanilla and whipped cream to make a airy and light cheese cake filling. Greek yogurt makes it a little less guilty and little more tangy when compared to traditional cheese cake.Cheesecake is the white component of the American flag. Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries make up for the red and blue colors of the flag. This dessert is great to make ahead of time — cheesecake filling can be made at least 2 days before. Berries can be macerated about 30 minutes before assembling, but make sure to top the cheesecakes just before serving.
