I love cheesecake. It is probably my favorite dessert. But there really isn't that much about cheesecake that is healthy. So I found this recipe, and I fixed it up a little. It doesn't have the same texture of cheesecake, but it does hit the spot. It is also a lot easier to make. I tried to get a nice shapely pie piece out, but it didn't happen. So I put it in a bowl. I hope you enjoy it!
