Tips for Making Cheesecake Low Points
First we are using pumpkin which is Zero points and very flavorful all on its own. Using WW Zero Point List you can make a ton of delicious desserts.
The next key ingredient is non-fat greek yogurt which is used instead of any butter or oil. Tip! Non fat yogurt is a great substitute in MOST recipes that require oil or butter.
The last ingredient is sugar-free vanilla or cheesecake pudding mix. Either of these are a delicious alternative to regular high calorie and high point puddings.
Using these 3 KEY ingredients, this pumpkin cheesecake recipe is a low point, delicious treat and spices added make for a delectable treat!
