“These cute cheesecakes are made in the orange shells.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the stem end of each orange, 1 inch from top. Remove "lid" and set aside.
  2. To scoop out orange, slip a tablespoon close to the skin. Gently pull fruit from peel and reserve. Take a thin slice off the bottom so the orange won't tip.
  3. Place a tablespoonful of granola in each orange shell.
  4. Separate the reserved pulp from the membrane and seeds with your hands. Measure out 1 cup of pulp. Discard membrane and seeds.
  5. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Blend in yogurt and pulp. Fold in whipped topping.
  6. Spoon mixture into the orange shells. Refrigerate 4 to 5 hours to set. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  7. Sprinkle tops with reserved granola. Add a candle, or replace "lids" if desired.
  8. NOTE: 12 (2 inch) muffin liners may be substituted for orange shells.
