Skinny Blueberry Cheesecake

Found this gem on Pinterest. Now you can indulge in a skinny blueberry cheesecake and not feel a bit guilty. The blueberry delight is only 5.9 grams of fat, while keeping its flavor, sweetness and richness.
Very easy to make, no pots or pans, just set in your icebox!

About Clarissa Cordero

Hi, I'm Clarissa from Huntington Beach, CA, I am an Author, Foodie and self taught "Home Cook" I love to “Dish” when it comes to anything that is food related as it has been a passion of mine from the moment I was able to hold a spatula. I have well over thirty years of experience in cooking, baking, and grilling. I've spent the last five or so years learning to replicate dishes of various cuisines around the world, create new dishes and reboot some of the classics I grew up with. It has been a pleasure sharing with others my passion, ideas, tips, and tricks that will make life in the kitchen fun and a lot easier.
