Mocha Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Instructions

  • Process all ingredients except espresso beans until completely smooth.
  • Pour over pre-baked crust and bake for 30 minutes or until the center is still a little jiggly but the edges are completely set.
  • Turn the oven off, but leave the cheesecake in the oven for another hour with the oven door cracked slightly to gradually cool the cake.
  • Remove from the oven and, once the cheesecake cools to room temperature, place in the refrigerator to chill for at least three hours.
  • Remove the sides from the cheesecake pan, top the cheesecake with espresso beans, slice, and serve.

Notes

This recipe will also work in an 9" round springform pan, but you'd need to double the filling to account for the added depth and increase the bake time from 30 to 50 minutes.
To switch up this cheesecake, you can use any flavor of Greek yogurt.
