Here is a really nice creamy No Bake Yogurt Cheesecake recipe with a crushed graham wafer crust.
1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
5 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 8-ounce bars of cream cheese
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt, plain
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 1/2 cups milk
1 Tablespoons butter
4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons corn starch(more or less for thicker sauce)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
*Optional; Chocolate Shavings
1 dark chocolate bar or chocolate chunk 70%
Grease a 9 inch spring form pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar.
Press onto the bottom of the spring form pan. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
In a large mixing bowl, using a hand or stand up mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Mix in the honey, sugar and vanilla extract. Add in the Greek yogurt and lemon juice; mix until blended .
Pour the filling over the chilled graham cracker crust and smooth the top.
Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.
Blend together the milk, sugar, cocoa powder and corn starch with a whisk until a smooth paste has formed.
Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and heat over a medium heat until the mixture begins to boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove the pan from the stove and add the butter. Stir the butter until it melts and blends into the sauce mixture. Add the vanilla extract and the cream and stir well.
Cool completely before drizzling over the cheesecake.
With the chocolate at room temperature, grate to make the shavings. Sprinkle on top.
