Healthy Key Lime Cheesecake
In my attempt to make my existing Key Lime Pie recipe a little bit more “authentic” (aka, omitting the protein powder, gelatin and time-consuming homemade key lime “syrup,”), I made this beyond freaking amazingly delicious Key Lime Cheesecake (I hope that description made sense?)
My point: this cheesecake is the bomb and you need to make it. NOW.
This Key Lime Cheesecake is thick, creamy and perfectly tangy. It is a unique upgrade to the typical key lime pies you would find at a bakery, which contain a ton of sugar from the sweetened condensed milk. This cheesecake also happens to be a jaw-dropping crowd pleaser, which I know from personal experience 🙂
Everyone who tried this cheesecake thought it was unhealthy and high calorie but it is the total opposite. This healthy Key Lime Cheesecake is made with Greek yogurt instead of fattening and high-cholesterol cream cheese, which my taste-testers loved and appreciated, and they raved about homemade graham cracker crust.
I was curious as to how my cheesecake would stack up to other Key Lime Cheesecakes, so here is a nutrition label comparison between the AllRecipes recipe and the DWB recipe. The AllRecipes label is on the left, the DWB label is on the right:
(I made the AllRecipes nutrition label using Keebler’s Graham Cracker Ready Crust)
Wow, what a difference right?! You can have TWO slices of my healthified Key Lime Cheesecake for LESS calories than the AllRecipes version! Plus, you save yourself 25g of fat, 15g of saturated fat and 27g of sugar. Oh, and with my version you also avoid the dangerous and unhealthy trans fats. I think we all know which cheesecake we would go for 😉
Ah, I wish I could have a slice of this right now, but that cheesecake was demolished by my taste-testers in a single day…
