Cheesecake without the guilt

My son drives me bazonkers on a daily basis to make desserts!
Doesn’t he realize those are damaging to my thighs
probably not because he has no thighs
nor does he need to worry about his thighs
and it would be a bit strange if he worried about mine!?@!
So I gave in and decided that I would give a dessert recipe a whirl from Skinny Taste. It’s a no bake cheese cake.
I haven’t made it yet but it seems easy enough and its no bake so how could that go wrong, right?!
I plan on letting him make it this weekend so I will post pictures as soon as we have it done. Until then here is the recipe and it seems fairly simple.
This picture is from Skinny Taste and Gina makes it look oh so heavenly! I hope mine turns our this pretty!

No-Bake Cheesecake
  • 8 oz Cool Whip Free
  • 8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 9 inch reduced fat Graham Cracker Crust
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
In a large bowl, whip cream cheese, lemon and sugar for a few minutes until fluffy. Add Cool Whip and whip until smooth. Spoon mixture into pie crust and chill for a few hours, until firm.


  1. Let me know how it turns out, Good luck. Looks yummy!

  2. My mouth is watering- great idea!
