‘Magic’ Cheesecake

Being diabetic or on any low sugar diet – dessert can be a swear word. There are many options though that are good choices when it comes to the sweetness at the end of a meal.  One of these choices is the ‘magic’ cheesecake – or so I call it – as you can change the flavouring simply by changing the flavour of the gelatin.  Then you can enjoy each bite while naming your delicious dessert ‘Orange Heaven’, ‘Strawberry Fields of Flavour’… ‘Lime Lover’ and so on.

Prep Time: 10 minutes                             Refridgerations Time:  3 hours Serves: 4-6                                                           Serving Size: 1 slice (of six)

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Sugar Free Jello (gelatin), any flavour
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese, light
  • 2 cups whipped cream (frozen or pressurized), light

Use a tiny amount of butter to coat a pie dish. Boil some water. Pour 1/2 cup of boiling water into the Sugar Free Jello and stir until dissolved.  In a separate bowl, mix the cream cheese until smooth (a mixer can help with this).  Pour Jello into the cream cheese.  Fold in all the whipped cream and blend again until consistent and smooth.  Refridgerate for 3 hours.  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a few berries.

Darling Daughter’s Notes:  I called the lime flavour ‘Lime Spongecake’.  It is cheesy, a little tangy and still has the slightest sweetness from the whipped cream.  I can make this dessert myself.
