Healthy cheesecake without sugar!
Finally, it’s CAKE time again! As you can probably guess from the various cake recipes on my blog, cheesecake is, in my opinion, one of the best and lightest cakes on earth! Since a lot of people still have difficulties to make a healthy cheesecake without sugar and a cake base, I started thinking: I must bake such a cake!
What makes this recipe so special is that we use actual sweet potatoes and no sugar for our cake. Adding the spelt flour ensures that the texture of the cake remains just right and juicy. Even if it may sound a bit strange at first, but believe me. This cake is simply super delicious! As you might have already guessed.
So let’s start with the sweet potato cake right away.
Sweet potato cheesecake
- 1200 g Greek yogurt (Low Fat) Vanilla
- 50 g spelt flour
- 1 egg(s)
- 250 g sweet potato
- optional sweetener e.g. Royal Flavour, Flavdrops
- Preheat the oven to 220 °C (430 °F).
- Peel the sweet potato and wrap it in a damp paper towel.
- Place the sweet potato in the microwave for about 6-8 minutes until they are softly cooked.
- Put the cooked sweet potato in a blender and mix it until it has a porridge-like consistency.
- Add the Greek yogurt and spelt flour.
- Add the egg and optional sweetener/flavdrops to the dough and continue mixing.
- Fill the dough into a suitable baking dish.
- Bake the cake in the oven for about 20 minutes at 220 °C (430 °F).
- Set the oven down to 150 °C (300 °F) and leave to bake for another 20 minutes.
- Let the cake cool down for at least 2 hours and enjoy it cold.
My tip for the perfect cheesecake:
Personally, I find such a healthy cheesecake is best served with a delicious protein smoothie or after a healthy dinner, making you feel healthy and full. It’s perfect during the cooling time. I recommend to let the cake cool down for at least 2-3 hours to get the perfect consistency.

More to this recipe:
Since I am often asked why I don’t put eggs in the cheesecake, I decided to write a little addendum to the recipe regarding eggs.
Of course you can also put eggs in the cheesecake. I for one have simply made the experience that eggs are not a necessity for baking. But since eggs would add a lot of calories I deliberately did not add eggs, of course you can do that anyway. But when baking it with eggs you should leave it in the oven a little longer.
Greek Yogurt or Skyr?
For all those who prefer to use Greek Yogurt instead of Skyr, I recommend replacing Skyr with Greek Yogurt in the ratio of 1:1. That is e.g. 100g of Greek Yogurt for 100g of Skry. This way the cake will however have a little more calories. The baking process won’t differ though.
