Titli's Tips
Any creamy cheese will do. I like to use mascarpone cheese, but you can use Philly or similar too. Don’t use Cheez Wizz – it’s not cheese!

Other alternatives to cream are:

Quark OR
Yogurt cheese OR
Buttermilk cheese OR
Blend equal parts cottage cheese and yogurt until smooth OR
Cream cheese whipped with cream OR Whipped double cream OR
Thick Greek yogurt OR
Queso fresco

Almost any soft fruit will work with this recipe. Tangarines or small pieces of pineapple make a refreshing tangy cheesecake. You can also use chocolate chips and decorate the top with chocolate shavings.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with this recipe – it’s hard to fail!
