Spring is here! We’re in the middle of a two week long Spring Break and loving every minute of it. It’s a time to enjoy the outdoors, make memories and yes even get our home organized.
I have to admit that this year I’ve been a little worried about Spring Break because I’ve made some huge changes in my life. Back in December, I committed to losing weight and getting healthier. It’s been 3 months and I’m happy to report that I’m down 45lbs and 54 inches! I still can’t believe it. The thing is I really haven’t made drastic changes. I’ve just swapped some of my favorite things for healthier alternatives. I definitely look at sugar content, eat plenty of fruits/vegetables, and try to commit to eating the best I can.
I have a routine and I’ve been a little nervous about breaking that routine. I decided that I needed to arm myself with little indulgences that wouldn’t make me feel guilty. That’s why I decided to swap sugar with Splenda in recipes.I’ve made a choice to reduce full sugar and calories in my recipe with SPLENDA® . I wanted to share my absolute favorite treat. If I’m really craving something sweet, this is my go to recipe. I used the Splenda Sugar Blend because that’s the sweetener I prefer, but it works great with regular Splenda.
Easy Peasy Cheesecake
- 2 – 8oz packets of cream cheese
- 2 Greek yogurts (plain or strawberry-I used a strawberry one)
- 1/4 cup Splenda
- 9 in graham cracker crust
- 1 cup of sliced strawberries for topping
- In a large bowl or mixer whip cream cheese, splenda, and yogurt.
- Blend until fluffy. I set my mixer to two minutes on medium speed.
- Spoon mixture into pie crust.
- Add sliced strawberries as topping.
- Chill for a few hours until firm
