Berry cheesecake

June 25, 2017

I wanted to create a simple dessert recipe with both Canada Day and Independence Day coming up.. There are usually so many barbecue parties and events going on and it’s nice to show up with a sweet treat that you can also enjoy eating without blowing your points for the day. This berry cheesecake is so simple to make, you can have it setting in your fridge in about 10 minutes. It’s sweet, but not too sweet and a nice light dessert on a hot summer’s day. Serves 8 at 161 calories and 7 freestyle smart points per serving.

Ingredients
  • 1 ready made reduced fat graham crust *I buy these in the U.S, you can use the regular ones, just might want to check if it changes points
  • 8 oz light cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 heaping cup fat free cool whip
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries
Instructions
  1. Use your food processor and puree your blueberries and strawberries together.
  2. In a bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together your cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add in your cool whip and blend till creamy.
  3. Use a spatula and place your cream cheese mixture in your graham pie crust.
  4. Add your pureed fruit to top (leave 1 Tbsp aside) and mix into your cream cheese mixture * you can do this in the bowl before placing the cream cheese mixture on top if you prefer, I mixed it in the pie crust as I did not want it mixing too much, also helps with the color affect.
  5. Place your remaining 1 Tbsp of pureed fruit on top to finish of the swirl affect.
  6. Let set in fridge for at least 90 minutes.
  7. Cut into 8 equal servings, store in fridge till ready to serve. *Optional to top with some whip cream and fresh fruit. Each serving is 7 freestyle smart points (4 points plus, old WW program)

    could you use a different combination of berries or just use one kind?

    I don’t have a food processor – do you think mashing them would have the same affect? Or just chopping them up real small?

      I’m sorry, not too sure what to suggest as that is the bulk of the ingredients

    silly question, do you bake the pie crust first????

      It is a pre-made pie crust 🙂

    How many ounces is one serving? Thinking of making it in individual cups.

      Hi Pam, sorry I did not weigh out the servings, I just cut them into equal pieces

    I just made this , using Truvia, fat free cream cheese, fat free cool whip and fresh strawberries and blueberries I froze myself last fall. Put it in a bowl and will top it off with crushed graham crackers at a picnic later today…..it tasted amazing!

    Made the pie and it was delicious! I had it refrigerated for two hours and it was not as firm as the picture. Can this be put in the freezer?

      Hi Lisa, yes I think so but I don’t think it will stay frozen if that is what you were after
