Cheesecake is a classic in our house. It’s one of my husband’s favorite desserts. In fact, we had cheesecake at our wedding. It’s not something that I make all that often, however, because the two of us have to eat the whole thing. While I don’t mind eating the whole thing, it’s not good for either of us. The answer is these delicious mini cheesecakes. I use foil muffin cups and don’t even bother with a muffin pan. Then, we keep a couple out for dessert and freeze the rest. Simple defrost them in the fridge (or pop them in the microwave for a few seconds) and add your favorite topping. While these ones have blueberry topping, you can have plain cheesecake, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, caramel apple…the list is endless. If you don’t want to make all of that topping, just make the cheesecakes and then top with a dollop of your favorite jam before you eat it. These are really easy to make and really delicious. The individual portion sizes makes it easy to get enough to satisfy without going overboard.
These decadent Mini Cheesecakes are the perfect sweet treat when you need to satisfy that dessert craving. And at just 2 Points + and less than 100 calories each, they will make any Weight Watchers dessert recipe lover a happy camper. I found a traditional mini cheesecakes recipe online, similar to what my mom used to use, and then just subbed out half of the cream cheese for fat free Greek yogurt (seriously, is there any place I can’t use this stuff?!?!?), and used a light cream cheese for the rest. I also used less sugar and added in some vanilla to help keep it sweet. Also, by using Reduced Fat Vanilla Wafers instead of the regular ones, you get a fantastic mini cheesecake for a LOT less fat calories and Weight Watchers Points. I topped mine with fresh blueberries and strawberries since I was making them for a Fourth of July party and I wanted a Red, White and Blue Dessert, but you can really use any fresh fruit you’d like. I’ve made them with cherries, with mangoes and papaya, and with kiwi. They are divine!! Enjoy.
