Reminiscent of a lemon cheesecake, this healthy breakfast recipe is easy to throw together in the morning. Or stir together the filling in a jar the night before and top with the fruit, nuts and seeds when you get to work.

Totally will make again the flavor was awesome...I did sub Icelandic Plain yogurt and added 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp brown sugar...because it is less added sugar than using commercial vanilla yogurt

I used lemon curd instead of lemon zest because lemons are very expensive where I live - far more so than lemon curd. I would say the texture is more like custard than cheesecake, but it tastes excellent and I am thrilled I tried this.
