Low Carb Cheesecake

Let’s be frank, who doesn’t love cheesecake!? It’s so annoying to sit in a restaurant and observe the dessert menu, when I see this pretty queen of desserts. My mouth literally starts watering, but being a weight watcher for nearly 6 years, I pretty much rejected this tasty dessert from my healthy regime. Then, one day in the gourmet store I came across a delicious, low carb cheesecake that I fell in love with it. Wondering how I could make one myself, I decided to give it a try and it was the best thing I’ve ever made. I was able to cut a sufficient amount of carbs while preparing this cheesecake and I promise you the taste of it is delicious. It’s light and fluffy, yet still creamy and delicious. The ideal treat for all cheesecake lovers who are watching their waistline. Next time you are in need of a good, low calorie, sweet treat recipe, give this cheesecake a try!
