Ingredients
  Cream cheese 16 Ounce
  Low fat greek yogurt 7 Ounce
  Strawberry jello 3 Ounce
  Water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Gluten free shortbread cookies 5 Ounce
  Melted butter 4 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Line a cupcake tin with 12 paper liners.
2. Place the cookies into a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
3. Stir the crumbs together with the melted butter until you have a damp sandy texture.
4. In a large bowl beat together the softened cream cheese and Greek yogurt until it’s well blended and lump free.
5. To dissolve the Jello, bring water to a boil, turn off the heat and stir in the entire package of Jello mixing for 2 minutes.
6. Add the strawberry gelatin mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix until the cheesecake batter has a uniform pink color.

MAKING
7. Add a heaping tablespoon of the crust mixture to each of the paper liners, using the back of a spoon press the crust mixture firmly onto the bottom.
8. Refrigerate to set for 60 minutes.
9. Evenly divide the strawberry mixture among the twelve liners.
10. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

SERVING
11. Garnish Cheesecakes with fresh strawberries and whipped cream or chocolate ganache before serving if you want.

TIPS
Be sure to combine the cream cheese and Greek yogurt in advance of dissolving the Jello since you’ll want to add the dissolved Jello immediately to the mix before it starts to set up. This recipe works well with other flavors of Jello so feel free to change it up to suit your own tastes.
For Ganache - To do this make, sure you've already chilled the cheesecake then melt equal parts of dark chocolate and heavy cream and stir them together until silky and smooth. Spoon it over the top of each cake. Make sure that the paper liners are still in place. Slice off the bottom of a strawberry then slice it into thin strips and stand the fanned out strawberry on top while the chocolate is still wet. Chill for about an hour to set the ganache and serve.
