Our Banoffee Cheesecake tastes as indulgent as classic New York style recipes, for a fraction of the calories. We can’t get enough of caramel with bananas, and you’ll find both decorating the top of this luxurious pudding. Even with the moreish crunch from our oven-baked biscuit base, every slice is creamy and light at just 275 calories.

One of our favourite flavour combos (as fans of our Banana and Caramel Filo Rolls will already know!), we can’t get enough of bananas and caramel. Whenever they’re served together, magic happens – and our indulgent-tasting Banoffee Cheesecake is no exception.
Baked New York style with cream cheese rather than heavy creams, we’ve kept the silky texture without piling on calories with the help of a few clever swaps. By using reduced-fat cream cheese, fat-free Greek yoghurt, sweeteners and lower-calorie drizzles, you can stay firmly on track – and no-one will be able to taste the difference!
Once Banoffee Cheesecake has had enough time to chill in the fridge, the fun can begin! We’ve decorated ours with sliced bananas and reduced-sugar caramel dessert topping, but you can get as creative as you’d like with alternative fruits and sweeteners. Just be sure to adjust any calories accordingly, if you’re counting.
To make this dessert extra-impressive, ramp up the decadence with a swirl of reduced-fat aerosol cream. Go on, you know you want to…
