At Slimming World, we love getting inventive with Weetabix (we even made it into a cake!). So when we saw Weetabix cheesecake was taking social media by storm, we couldn’t wait to put a Food Optimising spin on it.

The freedom and flexibility of our eating plan means it’s easy to make your favourite recipes the Slimming World way – and Weetabix cheesecake is no exception! We’ve swapped the sugary toppings for fat-free yogurt, fruit, spices and other Free or low-Syn flavourings.

The basic recipe is surprisingly simple – all you need are a couple Weetabix, some fat-free natural yogurt and a pot of fat-free flavoured yogurt. You can then let your imagination run riot with endless flavour combinations. Try our dessert-themed twists for starters and discover why everyone’s making this delicious dish.
