Ingredients

7 sheets leaf gelatine

200g Asda Tropical Granola

2tbsp rapeseed oil

250g Asda Light 50% Less Fat Original Soft Cheese (room temperature)

500g Yeo Valley Greek Style 0% Fat Honey Yogurt

1tbsp honey

2tsp finely grated orange zest

2tsp Clearspring Japanese Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder (optional), plus extra to dust

Method

1
Put the granola in a food processor and blitz into coarse crumbs. Add the rapeseed oil and blitz again until mixed together.
2
Line a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin with clingfilm. Tip the granola into the base of the tin and press down with a spoon to make an even layer. Chill.
3
Soak the gelatine in cold water for 5 mins until soft and pliable. Squeeze out the excess water and add the gelatine sheets to a small pan. Melt very gently over a low heat, but do not let the mixture boil as this can prevent the cheesecake setting well.
4
Mix together the soft cheese, yogurt, honey, orange zest and matcha powder (if using) until well combined, taking care not to overbeat it.
5
Fold the slightly cooled gelatine into the yogurt mixture. Spoon on top of the granola base and level with the back of a spoon. Cover loosely with clingfilm and chill for 2-3 hrs until set.
6
Remove from the tin, discarding the cling film, and dust with a little matcha powder to serve (if using).
