Cheesecakes need not always be fattening to be delicious. By substituting full fat milk with its low fat version and full fat cream with low fat cream cheese along with a reduction in the amount of sugar, you can cut down the intake of calories. But the trick while watching your waistline is to watch the portion size too. Serve yourself a small portion, put the rest aside and savour your treat.
