You can make one big cheesecake or make individual ones in any small dessert bowls that you have to hand
- 227g Sainsbury’s strawberries
- 10 milk chocolate digestives
- 50g unsalted butter, melted and a little extra for greasing
- 150g Sainsbury’s 1% fat fabulously fruity strawberry yogurt
- 200g soft cream cheese
- 150ml double cream
- 2 dsp icing sugar (or enough to taste)
Hull half of the strawberries and cut into very small pieces. Put the biscuits into a strong plastic bag and put that bag inside another bag – just to be safe! Ask your toddler to bash the biscuits with a rolling pin or wooden spoon to make fine crumbs.
Your toddler can then tip the biscuit crumbs from the bag into a bowl, add the melted butter and mix together.
Tip the crumb mixture (or let your toddler spoon it) into 4 small dessert dishes that have been lightly greased with butter. Press the base down to make sure that it sticks together to form a firm base. Put into the fridge.
Put the yogurt and cream cheese in a bowl and ask your toddler to mash the two together with a fork. You might need to help and really whisk to blend them together. Meanwhile, using an electric whisk, whip the cream in another bowl until you have soft peaks.
Add the cream to the yogurt mixture with the chopped strawberries, stir together and spoon on to the biscuit bases.
Leave to set in the fridge for at least 1 hour, preferably longer. Decorate with the remaining strawberries and sprinkle over icing sugar to serve.
