Occasionally, I get a wicked craving for cheesecake.
Sometimes, I don’t want to mix up all the ingredients and wait for a cheesecake to bake and then cool!
This dessert (or snack or breakfast or lunch) is just the ticket. It takes seconds to assemble, requires no oven, and is sugarless and low carb.
In TrimHealthyMama© talk it’s an “S”. Here’s how to make it.
THM “S”, Sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free
In a small bowl, place 1/4 block of Neufchatel cheese (1/3 less fat cream cheese, or you can use full-fat, up to you). Optionally, mix in a tiny squeeze of fresh lemon juice and *one drop* vanilla extract.
Add a tablespoon of chopped nuts (I am partial to pecans for this, but use your favorite).
Top with 4 chopped berries. (My favorite way to make this is to use frozen berries, sliced. I let it sit out for 5 minutes before eating and the berries are perfect.)
I find this to be sweet enough on its own, but you can add a bit of your favorite stevia-based sweetener to the cream cheese or sprinkled on top of all. I’m partial to TrimHealthyMama’s stevia products. About 1/2 tsp Super Sweet or 1 tsp Gentle Sweet is plenty, but make it how you like it!
The flavor of cheesecake with none of the work.
