LOW FAT CHEESECAKE

It's the time of year for entertaining, but finding the right low fat recipes, without a compromise on taste can be a real challenge. We've created a low fat cheesecake recipe that not only tastes just as indulgent, but looks the part too! Low fat, low calorie, high protein...it's a winner!

So what have we switched up

Eatlean Spreadable - A perfect alternative to cream, or a full fat cream cheese, our low fat, low calorie, high protein Eatlean Spreadable has all the indulgent taste, without the indulgent nutritionals.

Greek Yoghurt 0% Fat - Switching up the cream to a high protein, low fat Greek Yoghurt is a great way to keep the nutritionals within your macro goals.

Sweetener - A low sugar alternative, and a great way to keep the calorie and fat count lower!

Digestive Lights - Every little helps! We opted for the lighter version of digestives for the base for a reduction in fat content, and calories.
