Savse Smoothies: Super Red Broken Glass Cheesecakes

These individual cheesecake shots are light, tasty and great for a Halloween party. Kids will love the ‘broken glass’ shards and the refreshing strawberry flavour combined with a nutty hazelnut base is guaranteed to be a hit with all ages. To create the strawberry filling and gory ‘blood’ I used the Super Red smoothie from the Savse core range. To see how you can use other varieties in the range, take a look back at my Thai chicken salad and whipped goats cheese dish- it’s surprising how versatile a fruity health drink can be!

Ingredients:

For the base:

  • 40g caster sugar
  • 150g cream cheese
  • 75g double cream, whipped

Method:

  1. Place your biscuits and hazelnuts in a food processor. Blitz until they resemble crumbs then add the melted butter. Blitz again to combine then pack a tablespoon of the crumble into the bottom of each shot glass. Chill while you make the filling.
  2. Using an electric whisk, mix together the cream cheese, sugar and smoothie until well combined and non-streaky.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip the cream to medium peaks then fold into the cream cheese along with the yoghurt. Distribute this mixture on top of the biscuit bases and smooth off. Chill for at least 2 hours (it will be a soft set cheesecake).
  4. Preheat the oven to 200c. To make your ‘broken glass’ toppers, crush your boiled sweets and arrange in a thin layer on a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the crushed sweets have melted and formed a glass sheet look. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and break up into pieces.
  5. Now combine the remaining smoothie with the food colouring.
  6. Once your cheesecake pots have been chilling for at least 2 hours, decorate with shards and drizzle in the blood red smoothie!

Happy Halloween!
