Bake up a batch of our Raspberry Lemon Mini Cheesecakes and find yourself immersed in tart citrusy flavor! These light cheesecakes are perfectly portioned and low-carb, so you don't have to feel guilty about treating yourself!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla; with an electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add yogurt, eggs, and flour and continue to mix until well-blended. Spoon batter into prepared tin, filling each muffin cup 3/4 full.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool 30 additional minutes.
  4. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, or until ready to serve. Top with fresh raspberries and a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Why is it that this site features Diabetic Recipes, yet continuously includes SUGAR in the recipes, instead of a healthy natural sweetener? Carbs would drop. Hoping this approach can be explained to me. Thanks, I have been a Type 1 for 48 years now I use your site for new flavors ideas. Enjoy the newsletter.

Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us. We always recommend speaking with a doctor or nutritionist to find out your dietary guidelines. We know that not every recipe works for every person, however the ADA does allow for some sugar use within their acceptable guidelines. Also, sometimes using sugar substitutes can alter a recipes consistency or taste, and it may not work as well. The ADA has great articles on what can happen when using sugar substitutes in the kitchen, which you can find here: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what-can-i-eat/understanding-carbohydrates/artificial-sweeteners/using-sugar-substitutes.html However, that being said, we try to make our recipes versatile enough that you are able to substitute or alter them easily enough to fit into your nutritional guidelines. We hope this answers your question, and if you have any further concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.

How cute! These would be so fun to serve up with tea and pastries when I'm expecting company.
