Diabetic Choclae marble cheesecake

5 years ago
I am always on the search for yummy desserts that are lower in fat, sugar and calories.  I have tried many, but have not posted them because I have thrown them away.  There is no sense in wasting my time posting something I think is not good.  However, I just happened to find this yummy Diabetic chocolate swirl cheesecake recipe as I was googling stuff, and it looked pretty good, so I gave it a whirl! I found this recipe at The Diabetic Gourment Magazine website.

 

It received RAVE reviews from my BFF The Newyorican, as well as The Genius (who is a picky 12 year old).  Blue bell and I enjoyed it also, although I must admit I put some sugar free chocolate sauce on mine.....

 

So good!!
