Mint oreo cheesecake

August 19, 2018

I wanted to whip up a quick and easy dessert for some friends we were having over. I had this pre-made oreo crust sitting in my cupboard for a while so I put it to good use and created this delicious mint oreo lightened up cheesecake. It was a big hit with everyone and no one thought it was a “lightened up” version. This dessert comes together really easy and just needs a little time to set in the fridge, serves 8 at 8 smart points each. Treat yourself and your guests to this tasty cheesecake!

Ingredients

  • 6 oz light cream cheese, softened

  1. In a bowl beat together your cream cheese and yogurt using an electric mixer, add in your sugar and peppermint and mix till well blended and no lumps appear.
  2. Use a spoon and fold in your cool whip.
  3. Crush your oreo cookies up, I did it the old fashioned way in a little bag and used a heavy glass. Stir oreo crumble into mix then pour into your pie crust.
  4. Let chill in the fridge for at least one hour, two hours would be best.
  5. *You can leave out the peppermint and use regular oreo thins as well.
  6. *Optional to top with half of a oreo thin cookie as shown in the picture.

    I so badly want to make this – but I’m having trouble finding the Oreo crust. Where did you get yours?

      It’s a store bought crust. Down the baking aisle where they sell the premade ones

      Hi Ashley, I think I bought mine at my local grocery store here in Ontario, Fortino’s.. I don’t think I bought it in the U.S (where I buy some of my foods) I picked it up a while ago so I can’t exactly remember where I was
