No-Bake Dates Honey Cheesecake

12- Dates CheesecakePin

 

Some posts just wait, and endlessly wait. Just like the DDL Cheesecake – this one also waited for quite some time to make it to the blog. B loves cheesecakes and he requested me that I make one for his birthday. Now if you ask me when that day was, it was in April last year! πŸ˜€ Yes, please don’t start counting with your fingers. Hehe… The year before, I had baked this Eggless Mango Cheesecake and last year, it was this one. I am somewhat sure what his request would be for this year – it must be a Mango Mousse Cake for sure! I know B quite well, don’t I? πŸ˜‰

 

This is basically a no-sugar cheesecake, so a little bit of the calories is reduced from that side. The sweetness comes from the dates and the honey, and it is quite mildly flavored because of it, I must say. The inspiration was taken from here though I made my own twists and tweaks to the recipe. B totally loved it and waited patiently for me to finish clicking, before he devoured two slices and took away with him more than half the cake to treat his friends. πŸ™‚ I love cheesecakes too but the calories scare me. Already I am baking a lot and eating a lot, so a cheesecake is enough to give more damage to my already out-of-track eating habit! Grrr… Not spoiling your mood now and off to the recipe…

    Hmmm, that looks delish! Is there a way to substitute the cheese :p (I know it wouldn’t be cheese cake now, will it?) ? I love making cheesecakes but there are so rich that I never much of it. Of course Mr. Sweet Tooth gobbles it all down lol! Oh I also like the dates and honey additions, that’s very creative masha’Allah πŸ™‚

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Hehe… I know, sometimes even I wish I could replace the cheese! There is one recipe that I have tagged in this post which uses thick yogurt and cottage cheese (called paneer in India) and that was an amazing one, very light and flavorful too! Even I make them once in a while, very rarely… JazakAllah Khair Papatia… πŸ™‚
