A Keeper!

Happy Valentine's Day Eve y'all! Hope everyone is having a good week so far. As I was making my grocery list the other day, I was really craving something homemade, sweet, and delicious. The thought of going home after work and measuring stuff, getting out my big stand mixer, and making lots of dirty dishes did not sounds appealing though. I also decided it wouldn't be a good idea to make a big batch of something because I knew I would sit around and eat it all by myself...not good!! I turned to one of my favorite blogs, SkinnyTaste, and found a delicious recipe of Gina's. 

Low Fat No Bake Cheesecake (original recipe can be found here)

8 oz light or fat free Cool Whip
8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
9" reduced fat graham cracker crust
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

Directions: Whip the cream cheese, lemon and sugar together for a few minutes until it's fluffy. Add the Cool Whip and whip for a few more minutes until the mixture is smooth. Spoon the mixture into the pie crust. Let it chill for a few hours and then get to eatin'!

I planned on using my little hand mixer but couldn't find it, so I used my Cuisinart SmartStick instead. It worked like a charm. 

I can probably take the sticker off now...oops!

My mouth was watering due to my excitement of cheesecake for dessert, so I don't think I whipped everything long enough. Other than that, it was DELICIOUS and husband approved! 

Next time, I think I'll add some strawberries or blueberries on top. I also want to try it with an Oreo crust instead of the graham cracker kind. So many possibilities!!
