Recipes of Joy for the Season, Eggnog Cheesecake Recipe
If you're like most, you have one specific recipe that you use for cheesecake that's a winner.
Pull that out and let's begin. You'll need to substitute the following ingredients with the skinnier versions:
Regular cream cheese for fat-free cream cheese.
As a side note, we are not fans of fat-free cream cheese, but when used as a recipe ingredient, it's difficult to tell the difference. If you prefer, opt for light cream cheese.
Substitute Splenda for granulated sugar.
Add 1/2 cup of eggnog + 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg to the recipe OR add 1/2 cup of Coffee-Mate Eggnog flavor creamer found in the dairy case at your local market to your traditional recipe.
Bake as you normally would.
You can even use the ready made cheesecake fillings that are now sold at the market. They are big time savers, and it's too bad that they aren't also low in calories.
You'll have a delicious eggnog cheesecake that's lower in calories and fat than the regular version.
Recipe Example of Our Eggnog Cheesecake
You can take this recipe into a million different directions. You can add particular slices of fruit to the top and cover with a fruit-based sauce, or you can leave it plain.
You can use a flour based crust OR a graham cracker base crust.
You can line top of the cheesecake with whole cranberries or any other fruit such as strawberries - and then top with a glaze.
Why Sugar Substitute Over the Real Deal?
Sure, we like sugar but at almost 800 Kcals per level cup, it sends body weight off the hook.
On the other hand, the Splenda holds up well to heat in sweetening power and it contains zero kcals; be sure to use the variety that measures like granulated sugar. It's sold generally in the big yellow bag - not the little yellow packets which are far more sweet in measurement.
