Ingredients

For the strawberry topping:

  • 1 c shopped strawberries
  • 1 T Triple Sec Grand Marnier, or orange juice

For the cheesecake filling:

  • 8 oz. mascarpone cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt I used Chobani 0% Plain
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 t vanilla

For the crust:

  • 1 c ground almonds
  • 1 T honey

To assemble:

  • 1/2 oz. dark chocolate grated (I used Ghirardelli 70% Cacao Extra Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bar, and grated it with a Microplane grater)
  • 6 small strawberries optional

Instructions

For the strawberry topping:

  • Combine strawberries and liqueur or orange juice, and let sit for about 30 minutes.

For the cheesecake filling:

  • Combine the ingredients in a bowl, and stir until smooth and fully combined.

For the crust:

  • Combine the ingredients in a bowl, and stir until the honey is evenly distributed and the mixture is slightly crumbly.

To assemble:

  • Divide the almond mixture between 6 glasses or bowls, about 2 1/2 T in each, and press down slightly.
  • Top almond mixture with about 1 T berries in each glass or bowl.
  • Divide the cheesecake filling between the glasses or bowls, about 1/4 c in each.
  • Divide the remaining berries between the glasses or bowls, about 1 T in each, and divide any juice that may have collected between the glasses or bowls.
  • Sprinkle the grated chocolate over each of the cheesecake cups, and top with a strawberry, if desired.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be made the night before and kept chilled until serving.
