Guilt Free Lemon Cheesecake

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.

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.
