Creamy Dreamy Orange Cheesecake

Creamy Dreamy Skinny Orange Cheesecake
This smooth and creamy cheesecake is so easy to put together. It tastes like a full fat cheesecake, but only has a fraction of the fat and calories. Try making this on a warm sunny day and take a slice outside to enjoy.  I bet it will be a real crowd pleaser this Labor Day Weekend. Enjoy.

Creamy Dreamy Orange Cheesecake – Low Carb & Low Sugar

Yield: 8 nice size slices

Creamy Dreamy Orange Cheesecake – Low Carb & Low Sugar

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1 small box Jell-O Sugar Free Orange Gelatin — 3 ounce package
  • 4 oz low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 4 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup 1% low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 low fat graham cracker, crushed
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Cool Whip Free or Lite, thawed
  • 1 tbsp low fat aerosol whipped cream
  • Orange zest for garnish, optional
  • Orange or mandarin slices for garnish, optional

Directions:

  1. Mist both the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small zip lock bag, crush up the graham cracker into fine crumbs. You can use a rolling pin or the bottom of a small saucepan to lightly crush them.
  3. Sprinkle crumbs all over the bottom of the pie plate. Set aside until ready to fill.
  4. In a heat proof bowl, add Jell-O and then add the boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved. This should take about 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool for about 5 to 8 minutes.
  5. In a blender, add the cooled Jell-O, cottage cheese, softened cream cheese (both types), and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and creamy. The smell is so refreshing.
  6. Pour the mixture into a large mixing bowl and gently fold or stir in Cool Whip until blended.
  7. Gently pour or spoon mixture into pie plate and smooth out.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set. When you slice this up, you will have loose graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of the pie plate; sprinkle them over the whipped cream and the pie. Yum!
