150gGraham CrackersI used Market Pantry Honey Graham Crackers
2tbspunsalted butter melted
5tbspunsweetened cashew milkor almond milk
For the filling
8ozGreek Yogurt Cream Cheese
240gplain non-fat Greek YogurtI used Fage
1cup120g canned pumpkin puree
1tspvanilla flavored stevia
1large egg whiteroom temperature
For the crust
Preheat your oven to 300˚F and lightly coat the bottom of a springform tin with non-stick spray. I used a 9″ tin which was the perfect size for a thin base. If you like your cheesecake base a little thicker you could use a smaller tin.
Add the graham crackers to a food processor and pulse into a fine flour.
Transfer the graham crackers to a mixing bowl and add the regular stevia. Next add in the butter and milk and mix until completely incorporated.
Press the mixture into the tin and bake for about 25 minutes or until it feels dry to touch. 5. Allow to completely cool to room temperature.
For the filling
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and greek yogurt until smooth. Mix in the pumpkin puree and vanilla flavored stevia drops. Next add the egg white and mix until just incorporated. Finally add the cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla.
Spread the filling mix evenly over the top of the crust. Now get a large roasting pan and fill to about an inch & a half with warm water. Wrap tin foil around the bottom of the cheesecake tin so no water will get inside and then place your cheesecake in the roasting dish.
Carefully transfer the dish to the oven and bake for 18-22 minutes. You’ll want the center to barely jiggle when you shake the tin gently. Take a peek inside your oven before opening the door as the draft and change in temperature is the prime culprit for cracks in your cheesecake!
Cool your cheesecake completely to room temperature before removing the outside of the tin and covering with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 3 hours before serving. I put mine in the freezer for a couple hours before transferring to the fridge as I was rushed for time!
