3 Ingredient Cheesecake | Recipe

A couple of weeks ago I found a recipe for a seemingly easy to make 3 ingredient cheesecake on facebook. I decided to give it a try and share my thoughts about it with you.

According to the original recipe this is the ingredients and directions required to make the 3 ingredient cheesecake:


  • 1 packet of biscuits, crushed.
  • 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk.
  • 1 kg of yoghurt.


  1. Place the crushed biscuits in a smooth layer at the bottom of a large microwave safe dish.
  2. Mix the yoghurt and condensed milk together and pour over the biscuits.
  3. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool before eating.

My attempt at the 3 ingredient cheesecake recipe pre-cooking.

Now, here are my thoughts and suggestions for this recipe:

  • The biscuit base didn’t bind quite as well as it should have and may actually have needed a little melted butter. I would suggest adding maybe 20 grams of melted butter.
  • 5 minutes in the microwave was not enough to solidify the yoghurt/condensed milk mix properly and I ended up putting it in for 7 minutes in total.
  • I used a plain vanilla yoghurt but feel that a flavoured one (such as a fruit flavoured one like passion fruit or mixed berry) might taste better.
  • We tried the cheesecake straight after it had cooled down and again after it had been in the fridge for a few hours. I recommend putting the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 hours before eating as it set better.
