Get out the red, white and blue with these mini cheesecakes. Top each one with blueberries and strawberry slices for a delicious patriotic treat.


  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • Tbsp coconut oil
  • 12 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
  • oz nonfat plain Greek yogurt (gluten free if needed)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • tsp vanilla extract
  • egg lightly beaten
  • egg whites
  • Fresh blueberries and sliced strawberries for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a mini muffin pan with 24 mini-cupcake liners.
  • In a small bowl, combine the almonds with the coconut oil. Divide the mixture among the cupcake liners and press the mixture into the cupcake liners to form a crust.
  • In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and yogurt until smooth. Beat in the honey and vanilla. Add egg and egg whites; beat until blended.
  • Fill each mini-cupcake liner with cream cheese mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until puffed and set. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour (centers will sink slightly).
  • Top each mini cheesecake with blueberries or strawberries. Chill for at least 1 hour. Keep chilled until serving.
