This is high in protein...so if you have had WLS this would be a great treat for you. I think it would still be good with a little less sugar. I am going to try sweetner instead of sugar. So don't be so hard on this one it is a great taste. Read More

Easy BUT why is this so good for you? Because it left out half the ingredients? It doesn't even use low fat cream cheese? So so taste. My opinion is to skip this one! Read More

This cheesecake is awesome! I made it for christmas dinner but we were so full we didn't get to it. I tried a bite of it though and just about melted. I poured it into a graham cracker crust but there was too much of it so I poured the rest (probably half) into an 8x8. I tried it out of the overflow container and can tell you this doesn't need the crust. It's awesome on it's own. I don't think it's "good for you" but it's not as bad as regular cheesecake. Read More
