    cckarl's Note:

    I really enjoy the results of the South Beach Diet, but there's only so long I can take eating cheese, meats or salads, sometimes you just need something sweet - and not another Jell-O cup. The consistency of the filling of this dish is so thick and flavorful, you won't know it's a substitute and with some borrowed tips from member, CinLin, for the low carb crust plus a few added twists, you won't even miss the graham cracker crust. You can also mix up the flavorings for both the filling and the crust to create a lemon cheesecake, a chocolate mousse pie, or whatever you're craving! Additionally, please note I erred on the side of smaller servings, so if you have more than two mouths to feed, I would double the recipe.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    cheesec ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Crust

    Optional

    • 2 tablespoons sugar-free Cool Whip
    • 1 lime (to garnish)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Start with the crust.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    3. 3
      In a food processor add the cup of raw almonds, pulse until it is the size of sand granules (not too fine!).
    4. 4
      Add in the 2 packets of Splenda and the 4 tablespoons of melted butter.
    5. 5
      Pulse until it is well mixed and a workable paste.
    6. 6
      Spray a small, square baking dish (I actually prefer a metal pan as it has the tendency to crisp the nuts better) with cooking spray and with a spatula, add in the mixture and pat until evenly spread.
    7. 7
      Put in oven for 10-12 minutes; broil on top for another 1-2 minutes. Be careful that it doesn't burn; it should be a toasted brown.
    8. 8
      Once done, take out of oven and put in the freezer.
    9. 9
      For the filling:.
    10. 10
      In a food processor, add 1/2 package of lime Jell-O; follow the directions on the box and then pulse in the food processor until well mixed.
    11. 11
      Add in 1 juice of lime as well as some zest from the peel.
    12. 12
      Add in the softened Neufchatel cheese.
    13. 13
      Pulse until well-mixed, should be a thick liquid mixture.
    14. 14
      Add the filling on to your crust and smooth until even.
    15. 15
      I prefer to put it back into the freezer for about 1 hour and then either enjoy as a frozen treat or take it out for a few minutes to soften, but you can also just put it in the fridge for a few hours to set.
    16. 16
      Garnish with sliced lime and sugar-free cool whip and serve!
    17. 17
      (You can also substitute the lime Jell-O for lemon Jell-O for a cheesecake variation or chocolate Jell-O pudding for a chocolate mousse pie--minus the lime, of course).

      This is a wonderful recipe! I burned the crust when I tried to broil it (my first attempt at making a low carb pie), so on the second go-round I skipped that step. Although the top of the crust may not look toasty, it looks, and smells, much better! I also added a dash of pure vanilla extract to the crust.

      Just made this for low cal, low carb Easter dessert. Unfortunately I had to throw away the crust. One minute in the broiler caused it to blacken. Since I have a cold, my nose didn't tell me in time. I'll try again and omit broiler step. We'll still have this for dessert, just without crust. I'm back..it was delicious even with no crust!
