Chocolate Cheesecake Without The Calories? You'd Better Believe It...

Making cheesecake with Lo-Dough is incredibly easy. First off, make the crumb. Add some Lo-Dough crumbs, some butter and some sweetener/syrup into a pan and cook over a medium-high heat until golden brown. 

Make up the cheese mix according to your diet. 

- For slimming, use a combination of light soft cheese and quark. You might light to add a leaf of gelatine to this as it will be a softer set than normal. 

- For a keto cheesecake, go with full-fat soft cheese and mascarpone.

Stir in a little sweetener (we use powdered erythritol), cocoa and a small drizzle dark or milk chocolate as per your preferences - darker chocolate will generally have less sugar. Mix well, put on top of your crumbs and leave in the fridge to set for an hour or two.
