In this recipe, as in many others, it is about taking advantage of the natural sweet flavor of the pumpkin as the base of the dessert and thanks to it, avoiding the need to add sugar or sweeteners.
It must be taken into account that to achieve this, it is important that the pumpkin is sweet, choosing the right variety in season will guarantee success.
To make this sugar-free pumpkin cheescake, it is essential to choose a pumpkin that is sweet.
Usually very early pumpkins are not that sweet and some varieties are not either, ask for advice when you go to buy it and make sure it is.
This recipe is ideal at this time of year, with a light dark chocolate sauce and some red fruits you have a healthy and easy dessert to make, but in the morning with a coffee is a breakfast of 10.
To make this pumpkin cheesecake I usually use Quark cheese, but you can also use Greek yogurt, cream cheese, whipped fresh cheese, or a combination of them.
It is about flavoring the mixture well with cinnamon, vanilla and the spices that you like the most.
To cook the pumpkin there are two options, simply bake it or cook it in a pot with cinnamon, natural vanilla and a few drops of lemon.
After you put the pumpkin, quark cheese and the rest of the ingredients in the blender, remember that it does not have any type of flour, neither cereals nor nuts, that is why it is so light.
When it comes to cooking, heat the oven to 200ºC and bake at 180ºC for 45 min, as you know, each oven is different so click the cake to make sure it is cooked inside.
As it does not have dry ingredients, it is always juicy, its texture is that of a light cheesecake, each bite melts in your mouth.
I like simple and light desserts, to enjoy without regrets, this pumpkin cheesecake is an example.
It is not a sophisticated dessert, it is a simple preparation ideal to take at home without feeling guilty, you can enjoy a special breakfast or dessert without leaving the script.

But at home I opt for simplicity, you know that I am a home cook and that what I seek with my recipes is to develop a healthy and homemade kitchen.
