Creamy, tangy cheesecakes are unarguably the best way to pamper your sweet tooth, but unfortunately they can be quite fattening too. Not anymore!


This Guilt-Free Lemon Cheesecake cuts down on the fat by slashing the sugar content, and using low-fat cream cheese and low-fat butter.


The sugary topping of lemon sauce is avoided, and instead the cream cheese is flavoured naturally with lemon juice and lemon rind, resulting in a pleasing yet peppy cheesecake. Serve yourself a small portion, and savour your treat.
