Skinny Strawberry Cheesecake

This cheesecake recipe is perfect for Valentines Day that is right around the corner. It is creamy, smooth, and has just a touch of sweetness.


7 sheets honey graham crackers
1 Tbs. salted butter, melted and cooled
1 egg white, room temperature
2 Tbs. milk, 1 %


2 (8 oz.) 1/3 fat cream cheese
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg white, room temperature
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. sugar free strawberry preserves, melted and cooled

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Pulse the graham crackers in a food processor until it forms fine crumbs. Mix in the butter, egg white and milk and stir together until smooth.

Spray a spring-form pan with non stick cooking spray and spread out the crust in an even layer. Bake for 8 minutes.

In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Add in the cornstarch, egg white and vanilla. Spread the cream cheese on the cooled crust.

Pour the strawberry preserves in a random pattern on top. Use a toothpick and make a zigzag pattern through the preserves. Put into the oven and bake for 30 more minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool fully before slicing and serving.
