For holidays and celebrations, I love spending a day baking, filling and frosting cakes; whipping egg whites into fluffy meringue; crafting fancy cookies but sometimes you need a light and easy treat to share. This jam layered no-bake fat-free cheesecake is simple to make and travels well. Perfect for pot-luck suppers or community events.
1 8 oz package fat-free cream cheese
2 cups fat-free Greek style yogurt
1/2 cup reduced fat Graham cracker crumbs
2 teaspoons honey
2-3 teaspoons apple cider (or apple juice)
several flavors of jams or preserves
4 8 oz canning (mason) jars and lids
Blend an 8 oz package of fat-free cream cheese with 2 cups of fat-free Greek-style yogurt. Add 2 teaspoons of raw honey and a pinch of cinnamon to the yogurt mixture. Mix Graham cracker crumbs with a few teaspoons of apple cider.
Layer the Graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of each jar. Add a layer of the cheesecake mixture and then a layer of jam. Add another layer of cheesecake mixture and jam. Cover jar and refrigerate until ready to serve.
