Berry Cheese Cake

The 4th of July is spent with family and friends, enjoying good food and drinks and watching the fireworks show. Trying to stay healthy but still want dessert? Here is a delicious, low-calorie cheese cake recipe. The secret cheese cake ingredient is whipped tofu - a creamy substitute for cream cheese. Add berries and for about 200 calories you have a yummy treat. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 cup strawberries
1 block (12.3 oz) silken tofu
1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp Splenda or additional 2 Tbsp sugar
1 low fat graham cracker crust
1/2 cup blueberries

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.
 
Chop 1/2 cup of the strawberries. In a blender, combine tofu, soy milk, vanilla, chopped strawberries, sugar and Splenda until well blended; do not over blend.
 
Pour mixture into graham cracker crust. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the top appears cooked.
 
Slice remaining 1/2 cup strawberries. Arrange blueberries and sliced strawberries in design of your choice.
 
Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours before serving.

Yield: 8 servings
