THM Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar

I found this cheesecake recipe on Pinterest. It is not a THM recipe, but didn't take much to convert it. The original recipe can be found here. It is for one serving, but I multiplied by 4 to make 4 jar servings.  That way I could freeze some and have a convenient, delicious dessert on hand.  I like this recipe because it doesn't call for whipping cream, which I don't always have.

This is how I made it.

  • 1/2 c fat free sour cream or fat free greek yogurt
  • 3/4 c low fat cream cheese
  •  3 Tbsp Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten fluffy 

    Mix together and distribute evenly into 4 236ml greased canning jars.   Microwave, 2 at a time, for 1 min.  Open microwave door for 20 secs.  Then microwave again for 20-30 secs.
    Place in fridge until cooled.  In the meantime, slice enough strawberries to fill the jars to the top. Mix them with some Truvia or other sweetener.  When the cheesecakes are cooled, fill the jar to the top with strawberries and place the lid on.
    They are better eaten the next day, if you can wait. And if you're not going to eat them the next day, put them in the freezer and take out the morning you want one. Just place in the fridge for the day and you will have a delicious, healthy dessert waiting for you.
