I have a grandmother who is diabetic, and I wanted to create a cheesecake with no added sugar. My whole family loved it, it's now the only one I make

I used reduced fat cream cheese and chilled fat free evaporated milk. This makes a smaller sized cheesecake. I liked that this particular recipe had a very thin crust which is a dream for someone watching their carb count. My husband was the only one who didn't care for this dessert--my kids and I thought it was pretty good. I'd make this again. I think this would make a pretty good "mousse" dessert if I were to omit the crust, chop the strawberries and fold into the "filling", then pipe into dessert dishes. Read More

DOESNT SET! I followed the recipe to a tee for the filling albeit switching out strawberries for blueberries and the mixture is SO gooey. I ended up adding whipped cream to thicken it but the end product is still too watery. It ended up tasting like melted cheesecake icecream. I will add less milk and more cream cheese next time.

Absolutely delicious! I doubled the recipe (family was coming to dinner). No one guessed that there was no "added" sugar in the pie. I did not change any of the ingredients, but assembled it a little different - Once the cream cheeze & milk & spices & pudding were mixed I added the sliced strawberries to the mixture and then added to piecrust of graham crackers. This is really a nice treat and a very tasty one! Thank you for the recipe - this is a keeper according to my husband (and me!). Read More

This is delicious and I have made it several times. BUT it is not truly sugar free unless you can find sugar free graham crackers. Graham crackers have quite a bit of sugar in them. Read More

I have just made this for the second time for our diabetic friend. I used fat free white chocolate pudding instead of cheesecake pudding for a white chocolate cheesecake. His sugar levelss spike when he has fruit so I made a topping of whipped cream (0 carbs) and folded in fat free milk chocolate pudding. I made it the first time for his birthday and he was beaming. A definite good one and easy to make. Read More

I used a half pint of heavy whipping cream and slowly added it to the cream cheese. Turned out really good thick like cream cheese filling. But no graham crackers. We love the mixture. Read More

I also prepared this for a diabetic. While it's true that Graham crackers have carbs a diabetic is allowed some cards per meal. I chose to use just the filling piped in sliced (crisscrossed at the pointy end) strawberries. Thank you pinterest. They are wonderful. Cream cheese is very diabetic friendly. It's nice to have a sweet treat that truly satisfies. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
