Creamy, tangy cheesecakes are unarguably the best way to pamper your sweet tooth, but unfortunately they can be quite fattening too. Not anymore!
This Guilt-Free Lemon Cheesecake cuts down on the fat by slashing the sugar content, and using low-fat cream cheese and low-fat butter.
The sugary topping of lemon sauce is avoided, and instead the cream cheese is flavoured naturally with lemon juice and lemon rind, resulting in a pleasing yet peppy cheesecake. Serve yourself a small portion, and savour your treat.
- Place the biscuits on a butter paper or a rolling board and crush into a coarse powder with the help of a rolling pin.
- Transfer the crushed biscuit powder into a bowl, add the butter and mix well.
- Spread and press the mixture into the base of a 175 mm. (7") loose bottomed cake tin.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Keep aside.
- Pour the prepared cheesecake mixture evenly on the prepared biscuit base and spread it evenly using a palate knife.
- Refrigerate for 4 hours or till the cheesecake sets.
- Once it is set, demould the cheesecake, cut into 6 equal wedges and serve chilled.
