We hear you, Yakult fans: You love the straight-up drink, but you want to try having its citrusy-sweet flavor another way. What's great is that some bakers have taken to it to experiment with using the cultured-milk beverage to make all sorts of other desserts—from moist and fluffy cakes to silky-smooth ice cream. This time around, you can have it in the form of a lush cheesecake with a crunchy slant that's unconventional but will make you a convert. Meet Cebu-based online seller Sweet Kreations and their Yakult Cheesecake!
Here's why this Yakult cheesecake is a must-try:
While we've seen other Yakult-infused cheesecakes in the past, Sweet Kreations' version stands out in that it includes golden cornflakes—yup, the breakfast cereal—both in the crust and as a topping. So as you treat your tastebuds to the Yakult's tang and creaminess, you also get crisp, nutty bites that cut through the cheesecake's richness. Plus, this dessert comes in small (P380), medium (P550), and large (P1,050) sizes—so you can get a cake whether you're just looking to treat yourself after a long day or throwing a party.
Sweet Kreations is owned by a mother-and-daughter tandem who got into baking as the quarantine hit. If their cheesecake got you drooling, you'll want to save room for their other desserts too, which include the Nutella Cheesecake (starts at P385/small) and Salted Caramel Cake (starts at P400/medium). If you're in the area, you can just send them a message to place an order.
