mini mocha cheesecakes – everyday food challenge

Welcome to “Have a Sweet Thursday”. Today we feature a not-so-bad-for-your-waistline Mini Mocha Cheesecake from the current edition of Everyday Food Magazine. Just 174 calories and 2 grams of fat per mini cheesecake. How great is that? What’s their secret to a slimmed down cheesecake? Two things, a smaller portion, of course. And the cream cheese has been substituted with nonfat cottage cheese. Now I can hear some of you shrieking in horror. Relax, you don’t even really know that it’s there once you blitz all the ingredients in the food processor until they’re smooth as chocolate milk. A simple crust of a chocolate wafer cookie makes this recipe even easier.

Once you take them out of their cupcake wrapper and invert them on a plate, they’re not the most beautiful of desserts. I decided to top mine with a little store-bought sugar-free caramel sauce and just a sprinkling of sea salt.

If you’re looking for a little sweetness with a hint of mocha, I think you’ll really enjoy these. So go out and get your issue of Everyday Food magazine. The current issue features lots more light recipes just in time for all of those new year’s resolutions.

    Cheesecake is a dessert consisting primarily of a mixture based on soft, fresh cheese (not always cream cheese), eggs, and sugar; often on a crust or base made from hard biscuits (such as a graham cracker crust), pastry or sponge cake.[1] It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake is usually sweetened with sugar and may be flavored or topped with fruit, nuts, fruit sauce and/or chocolate. Various flavours of cheesecake exist, such as lemon, strawberry or toffee.-
