    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    This is adapted from sparkpeople.com. It sounds yum and it's only 177 calories/4.2 grams fat per serving. I'm not crazy about fat-free cream cheese and sour cream, so I will probably try it using the light versions instead, which will up the calories and fat content, but not by much.

      I loved this cheesecake because it was so light and fluffy, and very tasty! (I'm not a fan of dense cheesecake and if you are, this probably isn't going to be your favorite cheesecake.) A couple of tips... 1 cup of grahm cracker crumbs worked out to 5 whole grahm crackers for me. Also, I had to cook the cake for an hour and a half. (Maybe because I'm at a higher elevation, or maybe because I didn't really measure the fruit juices... I just squeezed the fruits directly in to the mix.)
