Baby Cheesecake – Part 1

IMG_5790

I made this treat for babies that accompanied their parents for our new year’s party. Why should adults alone eat all the good stuff right?

It’s a no bake cheesecake and it’s completely baby friendly. I chose strawberries since they are in season, though one can use any fruit pulp.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Strawberries
  • Hung yogurt (basically hang yogurt in a muslin cloth to strain the water, keep it so for a couple of hours, what you’ll get is super thick yogurt)
  • Crushed cereal for the ‘biscuit base’
  • A bowl to set it in

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Boil the strawberries in a little water to cut the acidity
  • Once the mix has cooled  add it to the hung curd
  • Set the crushed cereal base in the desired bowl
  • Pour the strawberry yogurt mix on top and refrigerate it for a couple hours
  • Serve cold

  1. Thank you girls!

    In fact thats the next-in-line variation to the cheesecake which I shall be posting soon! and yes its all too yummy :)

  2. Hi Nams,
    I’m super inspired by all the yummy meals you prepare for T, especially since I’m ZERO adventurous when it comes to food!
    I tried your strawberry cheesecake recipe for N. How did you get the mix to be sweet? I didn’t add any sugar to the hung curd and for the base I used crushed cornflakes cereal (again without sugar).
    What I ended up with tasted good, but more like strawberry yogurt and not dessert like.

    • Hey Ramya, Thanks a bunch!

      Yes it does taste like strawberry yogurt. I avoid the sugar since the Strawberries do the job of sweetening it enough. As for the sweetness if its still sour from the berries you could add a pinch of sugar. The idea is to have it naturally sweet though. Also, since it uses yogurt and will taste so. :)

      Check out the pureed cottage cheese version, thats of a thicker consistency and will taste more ‘desserty’. :)

    • Hi Shilpa, Thank you so much for your appreciation.

      Yes, this would be the perfect time for yogurt I presume. It’s extremely good for their little digestive systems. However, I would recommend giving her homemade yoghurt, plus its so easy and cost effective to just set it at home :). Once she’s older you could go in for the boxed ones. I usually give T the boxed ones only if I don’t really have an option. I am not very particular about the brand either.

      Good luck and thank you for following my blog.
