The biscuit base
Butter cookies 6
Butter 20g

The filling
Blueberry Greek yoghurt 1 package or 80g
Cream cheese 60g
Caster sugar 1 tbsp
Fruits of your choice for topping

To make the biscuit base, break each cookie into 3-4 pieces. Drop them in a plastic bag and gently whack it with a rolling pin to turn them into crumbs. Heat the butter until just melted and pour on the crumbs. Mix well. Spread this mixture evenly in a 3-inch tart tin to make the base. Put the tin in the fridge for at least an hour to harden. At the same time, take the cream cheese out of the fridge to soften.

After an hour, whisk the cream cheese and caster sugar until well blended. Add the blueberry yoghurt and keep whisking until you have a smooth mixture. Pour this on the biscuit base, making it as even as possible. Let it set in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.

Top the cheesecake with a colourful mixture of chopped fruits just before serving. You could use figs, pomegranate, strawberries, grapes and cape gooseberries.
