Low Calorie Cheesecake

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Toby Jermain

I found this on a cream cheese package, I think ??? It's easy and very tasty. I love a good cheesecake, but I am rarely in the mood to go to all of the trouble to make a quote "real" unquote one. Prep time does not include chilling time

This was a delicious, low(ish) calorie dessert that totally satisfied my cheesecake cravings. I make mine without a crust and put it in little ramekins, which makes it more of a mousse sorta thing. I also have used lemons instead of oranges, and strawberries in syrup instead of pineapple. Both are good! Cheers!
