Holy Cheese Cake

I have been searching for a good cheesecake recipe. I tried a recipe found here and it turned out really good!

2 packages of fat-free cream cheese, room temp
2/3 cup of splenda
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla

Cream cream cheese and splenda. Then add vanilla. In a separate bowl, whip heavy whipping cream until you have soft peaks. Then fold cheese mixture with whipping cream. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours before serving.

Serves about 10 with 130 calories, 9.5 grams of fat, and 7.7 grams of protein per serving.

I got about 10 to 12 servings out of this. I ate it with fresh strawberries and blueberries.
You could add it to a pre-made crust. But the average calories per serving of pre-made crust is about 110.

This recipe does have quite a bit of fat. If you substitute heavy whipping cream for lite whipping cream, the calories jump from 130 to 80, 9.5 grams of fat to 2.3 grams, 7.7 grams of protein to 7.2. I am not sure how it effect the taste.

I difenately will be trying this recipe again. Next time, I will do the substitution.
