Yogurt Cream Cheese Cups!

I am a big fan of yogurt and fruits and with the berry season in full swing I couldn’t resist making these tiny little yogurt cups. These cups are the best way to give your kids something fun to eat and definitely beats the store bought yogurts any day.

I am putting up the measurements for individual cups:

  1. Cream Cheese: 2 Teaspoons per cup
  2. Heavy Cream: 1 Teaspoon per cup
  3. Plain Yogurt: 2 Teaspoon per cup
  4. Oreo Biscuits: 1 small pack
  5. Butter: 1/2 cube ( cold)
  6. Berries: I used Raspberries, Blueberries & Strawberries roughly 20 grams each
  7. Brown Sugar: 1 Teaspoon for the glaze
  8. Honey: 1 Teaspoon

I made these cups using normal cupcake holders and I suggest you use a small round glass since I found the cupcake holders didn’t get soggy but were sure messy. Crush all the Oreo biscuits in your mixer and add in butter cubes. Take the mix out and if you are using a glass just settle in the base with your fingers and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

While the base is firming up move on to make the berry glaze. To make a glaze you need to put the berries in a pan over low heat and add in the brown sugar. Just a teaspoon will do. Keep stirring the berries until the juices start oozing out and the berries become soft. Let the  separate berry glaze mix cool down and using a strainer separate the pulp from the juice. Throw the pulp away and keep the glaze.

In a separate bowl take yogurt, cream cheese and heavy cream and gently fold in using a hand whisk till there are no lumps. Add in honey.  Now using a spoon add in the yogurt mix to the glaze and fold in one or twice. We need the swirl pattern so do not over mix it.

Take out the Oreo biscuit base and top with the yogurt mix and put it back in the fridge. I did add in some chopped strawberries at this point to the strawberry cup. Keep it for an hour in the fridge or till it sets can be overnight also. It will be a thick paste and will not set like a typical cheesecake that uses gelatin or a setting agent. Decorate with berries and edible flowers and you have a healthy dessert ready to eat. You can draw patterns on the top of the yogurt cups by keeping some of the glaze and using a toothpick just add in a few drops and draw in a pattern of 8.
