Cheesecake
« on: November 12, 2011, 12:11:44 PM »
This recipe was given to me by a friend at work who has been following FTS plan for a few weeks and doing great.  It is simple, inexpensive and will make a great holiday treat (I had it for breakfast!)! It is on the Knox gelatin box!
I added sugar free strawberry flavor to this one.  I have ordered some pumpkin flavoring to try for Thanksgiving!


Cheesecake1 envelop unflavored Knox gelatin
1/2 cup xylitol
1 cup boiling water
2 pkg 8 oz each cream cheese ( I used Philly 1/3 less fat neufchatel cheese)
1 tsp vanilla
Optional - strawberry syrup/flavoring or your flavor of choice

In large bowl mix gelatin with xylitol. add water & stir while gelatin dissolves. With mixer, beat cream cheese and vanilla until smooth.  Pour into crust chill until firm (about 3 hours).

crust- almond flour & butter or Dixie Diner graham cracker crust!

Hey Umpa, when you use the flavored sugarfree jello, do you use the whole small sized box?  Do you also leave out the xylitol?

The only carbs are in the cream cheese and fruit .Jello is a zero,not the jello puddings though.I like the 1/3 less fat philadelphia cream cheese.It stands up well in kitchen and is 4 carbs per 8 ounce block.To make a baked cheesecake you have to cut it with real cream cheese. ;) The kids love this jello cheesecake zombiegirl ;)
