Guilty as charged… I couldn’t resist and had to make this again but with strawbs instead :)
Ok, ok, I really have no excuses. I loved my easy lemon cheesecake pots so much that I had to make them again tonight.
I actually only made one because husband was taking the high ground and resisting the lure of cheesecake (actually because he was opting for the chocolate pudding I’d made – that recipe’s being posted next week!) So here it is, a quick snapshot of tonight’s easy cheesecake pot, with the addition of some fresh fruit in the form of blueberries and strawberries.
Mistake no 1: Ever since I made the original cheesecake pots (on Monday), I’ve been trying to think of other nice things to eat with it, hence the strawberry and blueberry combo. However, these strawberries were grown in Kent and it is November, which means they were probably grown in a poly-tunnel because they tasted of crap all. So tasteless that I had no choice but to sprinkle a spoonful of sugar over them to make them taste nice.
The blueberries, on the other hand, tasted lovely, but they’re from South Africa… so much so for trying to reduce my carbon footprint. Sigh.
Lesson no 1: I will have greater will power in the future and resist the urge to buy fruit and veg out of season for the very reason that non-seasonal fruit really doesn’t taste as nice as they look.
That said, my straeberry and blueberry pot tasted really, really, REALLY nice 🙂
Lesson no 2? Well, what I realised when I started eating my pud was that what I was craving wasn’t so much the cheesecake mixture (though it IS divine), it was actually that I was actually craving the oat ‘n’ nut base I’d made earlier. Tonight’s pudding would have been just as nice with a dollop of greek yoghurt and some honey over the fruit and the oatey nutty base. That’s definitely going to be a pudding for another day. In the meantime, I’ll just sit here quietly rubbing my belly in glee and bid you night night.
Lots of love
